My home town, Calcutta, reported 5 new cases today. Stay safe, everyone! Don't go galavanting, and please save your adda for later! We can't let this virus reach the slums and chawls of India! We're all in this together.

Man people should understand themselves. If I had come from foreign, I would happily stay isolated away from population in Rajasthan's Desert.

To those people like me who are away from home, i know the Situation is tense & frustrating but as a human & for humanity we should all be responsible by keeping ourselves isolated from friends & family for a short period of time❤ This is nothing compared to China so be positive, chill, stay hygiene, pray & enjoy Netflix❤ Let's all be more responsible & fight against this disease😊

    • Tenzin Choden, she could have called authorities and got herself quarantined; but no she traveled all the way via Guwahati, apparently infecting so many people. How many ? God knows. Yes she is not well,I do feel bad but again I’ll say she is irresponsible for not thinking about the others whom she may have infected. This is not the correct time to feel empathetic, be practical

      Ashmita BoroAshmita Boro5 ਦਿਨ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ
    • Agreed bro. She is putting whole state in danger. If prayer was so powerful then no devotee would get infected. It's a pandamic and few uneducated human who are more afraid of their own safety then million other in their own state. These people are criminal and should be given the tag Terrorist. The family must pay for all cases that this women will be the reason for being infected. Such people must be punished.👍

  • They might check for fever at the airport. Many people have virus but no fever. She came to Delhi on 21st. Then traveled to Imphal airport via Kolkatta and Guwahati. Some say via Kolkatta and Agartala. Some reports say that in Kolkatta she met with her brother who returned from US and stayed at a hotel. She tested positive on 23rd in Imphal. I thought government would ask anyone traveling from abroad to quarantine for 14 days but apparently not.
