    Useless Dakshina Kannada administration team and the heads. People are roaming on roads without masks, shop keepers, public transport etc even police personnel seen without masks. No checking is done, I beleive govt has told them to do checking and fine for this only on weekend curfew days or only for one day for one or two hours. Useless guys and blaming people coming from other states, they cannot control their districts and state.

    Why only Kerala? Make it mandatory for everyone entering the district. Covid has spread again to all corners of the world.

    When Omicron has already entered and is flourishing in the district, what is it that you are trying to prevent by testing every person entering the district . If there is anything learnt about this virus is the last 2 years, it is the futility of trying to prevent spread by putting stupid barriers at country, state, district, taluk levels particularly when people residing in the place are not ready to even wear a mask properly. Just a way of transferring taxpayer's money in govt treasuries to private hands in the name of rtPCR testing, isolation centres etc etc
