    We are not medics to tell GOSL this and that on corona, but can see whats happening in India right now and also what our own doctors in charge of hospitals say on the new variant that has entered the country.

    I feel that if GOSL does not shut down the country immediately we too will get into the same situation that India is in today. Our people are seen gathering at various places disregarding the rules. The only way to prevent is restricting the movement to local areas (paddy field and own vegetable growing lands). It appears from what the doctors say there is no distinction between age groups, even a young fellow who has already got the jab will succumb to it in a couple of days.

    These days sun does not shine and perhaps the virus can stay longer in the air and spread.
    Perhaps when the sun shines again brightly like in the beginning of the month the virus may disappear.

    I think we should discontinue the flights from India as countries like Singapore has already done.
