  1. In case you didn’t realise this is how police state comes…inch by inch, little by little. The public is acting like frog in the boiling water. The emperor knows if water is too hot, frog will jump out.

    More people die of unnatural deaths than the corona virus casualties till date. If anyone is interested look at Sweden. Apart from banning mass gathering (over 50 people) and isolating the elderly, they did not lockdown the country and yet their covid casualties are no worse than other countries. So that makes you think if there is some other motive behind all this drama.

    Don’t get me wrong, the virus is real, but it’s no different than the flu virus with the only difference being no vaccine exists so far. But it’s not something like a bubonic plague. So total shutting down of the country is gross over-reaction. We all will laugh at this in a few years time, just like how people ridicule the Y2K bug which turned out to be a damp squib.
