Second thing, India wants India to fail, because that woke feeling about being proven right is the only validation people need.

Who wants India to fail? Can you please elaborate? Honestly confused.

Since i last posted in this thread, massive change in our area. 
Bangalore South was least affected during the lockdown. Now, it has the most cases in Bangalore.
Lot of areas  are  completely getting sealed down from tomorrow. 

Atleast 10 cases in less than 500m radius. Things changed rapidly this past week.

- those who hold degrees in jholi-jhanda courses but will give Gyaan on epidemics to Astrophysics
 

- those who blabbeted nonstop about "test test test" while at the same time saying "lockdown se kuch nahi hota"

 

India has too many experts who have expertise in every field than their own. In a way, we are becoming like US.
We want to take that high moral position w/o being practical at all.

 

Thousands of migrants walked to their home on empty stomachs, many died on their ways, everyone cried for them but it took Sonu Sood to really do something.aboit them.

Majority of the cases are imports from other states unfortunately. 
Hoping it'll reduce in next 2 weeks.

Basically anyone who criticises the central government and these days, whoever thinks "coronil" is bullshit. 

 

Folks who criticize the central govt dont want India to fail. This, right here is a major problem. Why is hard for people to criticize a govt for doing something wrong and appreciate it for doing things right.

 

It was a good move to initiate the lockdown early. But a crappy move to confuse people and give them a false sense of security and making them believe they've beat corona. See what I did there?

Home Minister is going to save Delhi.

Yeah right!! 
 

that guy & his team will make things worse  with their bright scientific ideas if anything 

 

 

First thing he tried to do was a mandatory 5 day Institutional quarantine even for Asymptomatic cases 

 

Imagine if someone got a false positive (which has happened a lot) he will be asked to go to a state sponsored quarantine home & become positive needlessly 

 

Secondly institutional quarantine for 65k+ ppl all at once 

what a bright idea 

hasn’t happened anywhere in the world 

 

Now after all not one but all!! medical experts begged not to such a disastrous foolish blunder 

They are saying going for a check up at these institutional quarantine is a must & then it’ll be decided if you stay or go 

 

 

I mean at this time instead of encouraging ppl to get tested they our literally begging them not to get a test out of sheer fear of having to leave their home & stay on a khatiya in an ashram 

 

Very bright move

In this very thread someone told that girl was infected, she stayed in the family and then 30 yr old brother died, while she recovered?

none of the family members were tested but they should’ve been tested because they were primary contacts.

 

State govt would love if people stayed I. Home quarantine because they will not get tested, their deaths won’t get counted.

all of a sudden there is panic among Bangaloreans, cases are increasing
majority of the opinion is Karnataka govt took foolish decisions in opening all borders and allowing people to come in

govt is now struggling to arrange beds, if a person is tested positive its taking more than 10 hours for him to get a bed allotted or they have to chose private hospital and take the financial burden.

Criticising is good but one needs to have knowledge, qualification & reason to criticise.

Testing primary contacts is a different issue 

 

Obviously it should be mandatory 

 

 

& assessment of whether or not home isolation is possible is also of utmost importance 

 

But taking all in detention when you just don’t have enough capacity is disastrous 

 

do you understand the quantum of this,

long queues outside these facilities even when someone had a whole farmhouse to isolate themselves 

 

Somethings are just not feasible 

we should very much accept that 

 

 

As for Family members passing it on to their family 

atleast now ppl are willing to get tested as soon as possible 

to save their loved ones & stay away if positive 

 

Can you imagine someone willingly getting tested & then going for sleep over in an open sky ashram 

 

they will not get tested & then spread it even more among family & neighbours

 

Imagine that

At times common sense is needed. Don’t think either state or central govt are applying any scientific ideas

 

First thing he tried to do was a mandatory 5 day Institutional quarantine even for Asymptomatic cases. 
there is a reason why that is suggested. So that these asymptomatic and mild cases dont spread it to other people. Currently due to lack of either govt majority are staying at home quarantine and infecting their families and neighbours. Thats why u see a spike. Someone also mentioned here that covid positive home quarantined people are roaming around in their societies having walks etc. That is not how one is going to control the spread.

 

Imagine if someone got a false positive (which has happened a lot) he will be asked to go to a state sponsored quarantine home & become positive needlessly.

still the number of false positive will be insignificant as compared to the number of people who are for sure infected and not getting tested. In delhi if one is infected they were not even testing the remaining family for covid and are leaving it to them to keep a check on their health and inform the authorities if they dont feel good instead of testing them. Happened with a few of my acquaintances. 

 

Secondly institutional quarantine for 65k+ ppl all at once 

what a bright idea 

hasn’t happened anywhere in the world 

if nothing has happened over the world doesnt mean it cant be successful over here. Infact if successful we can show the world how it can be done. Why we only have to follow what has been done somewhere else? Every country is different and its not necessary that something which has been successful elsewhere will be viable here too and vice versa.

 

Now after all not one but all!! medical experts begged not to such a disastrous foolish blunder 

They are saying going for a check up at these institutional quarantine is a must & then it’ll be decided if you stay or go .

Same answer as above. First everyone was asking low testing low testing now when HM is helping with testing everyone is saying we dont want to go get tested. Still dont understand what do people want.

 

 

I mean at this time instead of encouraging ppl to get tested they our literally begging them not to get a test out of sheer fear of having to leave their home & stay on a khatiya in an ashram.

When covid started everyone who was tested positive was admitted no body did hue and cry at that time that they want to stay at home and get fit. Infact Home quarantine is an outcome of lack of beds and arrangements in hospitals/quarantine facilities it was no master stroke by any means. So asking people to stay in quarantine facilities is no different. Though it can be debated for sure. But its not that wild of a suggestion as it is being made out to be.

What’s the point of increasing the testing rate if you discourage ppl from getting a test done in the first place 

 

This is worse than what Kejri did 

ppl wanted to get tests done & he didn’t allow 

 

Now ppl will avoid getting test done unless they need a hospital bed

How is one discouraging by asking to get them tested?

if you are saying that they are getting discouraged by the thing that they have to stay in quarantine Center if they are found positive is getting them discouraged?

 

Then how is it different from admitting patients to hospital on being found positive when lockdown started? Everyone was fine with that? 1000s of people were going to hospitals to get admitted and tested and getting rejected. They were dying coz of lack of beds think about them too. Just for the convineance of few who want to get treated and also want the luxury to be staying at home should we stop the needy from getting the facilities?

Lol what did they do? is this related to Thali Bajao and Diya Jalao PR events? :lol:

Seriously nobody gives a f**k about Corona now, and nobody would have without the Lockdown in place.

 

Only people who are doing corona corona now are the liberal establishment and the Bhakts, for anti-central govt/ pro-central govt reasons,

The average guy doesn't care, he never has, never will.

Already i am seeing people roaming without masks in my area :roflroll:

 

 

Indian public is mainly idiot, it isn't like the smart and obedient Japanese public, unless the sarkar waves the danda and does Lockdown etc people will not even behave during a plague or wartime or during some other emergency

This is bloody true. There are multiple positive cases in my building & probably hundreds more in the area but people have begun going on with their lives as normal. Thankfully most with masks on.

 

Civic sense is the most important thing now. Expectation that the government, be it left or right will come in and wave it's magic wand is extremely naive.
