    Can you believe these numbers? Official figures say 239 deaths in Karnataka on the day, but every crematorium is overworked and non stop bodies are being cremated, in each crematorium in Bangalore itself. They have constructed many makeshift/temporary crematoriums which are working non stop. So if the deaths are just 239 in the entire state how come all the crematoriums are cremating the dead non stop and are overworked? how come ambulances have to wait in queues for hours to cremate the dead... The figures are NOT real.... just false, cant be trusted at all... hiding the actual figures shows fraud and incompetence of those ruling.......

    From 2014, we are used to hearing so many jhumlas, that even if by any chance, they speak the truth, it does not look believable.

    The people and government must stay at home and avoid going out . Better to avoid shopping except grains , vegetables , dal milk etc.If possible get them delivered at home or bring them yourself if the shop is next door. No need for home delivery as it mean a visit of another person who may be infected and you may be exposed to him or her. Do not visit friends relatives and ask them not to meet you. These precautions may help you survive in these corona days.
