Some suggestions to reverse this draconian lockdown. Add yours and hopefully the powers that be listen. A poor country like India can't afford 100% lockdown. People will die. Even rich countries can't afford to do it. Let sense prevail. #Thread
Restart a few trains and few buses. Drastically cut it down the number from normal times to ensure there's social distancing. Keep trunk routes open. Install thermal screening while boarding. Ensure cops are around to make sure the trains and buses are not crowded.
Keep all non-essential shut down. But keep restaurants open for delivery and takeout only. And ensure proper hygiene by delivery companies that they wear gloves and masks. If you've pre-paid by card on the app, leave the food outside.
Open few airports. But limit number of domestic and international flights. Indians stuck overseas at airports. Indians stuck in other parts of India. They have no food, no home, no income and no way to go home. Seeds of social disaster.
If this lockdown extends April 15th as many saying, the human, social and economic costs for India will be devastating.Few NGOs helping out is not the solution.Governments must rethink and recalibrate else we're heading into a disaster that could be as bad or worse than the virus
