Lockdown may not be the best solution, or so it seemsWith the Covid 19 menace back in its third phase, expert opinion on how to manage it also seems to be divided. Doctors are of the opinion that if one takes all the usual safeguards, that should be fine and a total lockdown is not needed.
One also does not know for how many years this menace will be around. Only the upper middle class and the rich are unaffected and unemployment is now at a record high. Disturbing visuals of thousands of labour waiting to board trains from industrial hubs such as Tiruppur and Coimbatore does indicate that the people want the security of their homes more than anything else.
Perhaps with all drastic actions and increased pace of vaccination, the virus can be controlled and only certain restrictions like total lockdown on weekends should be fine enough.
