Restore Essential Goods Supply Chain

My friend's retired parents don't have access to drinking water. Another friend's sick parents don't have access to their medical attender. My colleague's family didn't have time or money to stock up on supplies and are scrambling for the basics. This needs to stop!

We are on a countrywide lockdown with little to no notice. Homes everywhere haven't had the time to stock up supplies, and panic hoarding has made things worse. Without access to essential supplies, the lockdown is bound to fail as people resort to desperate measures to get basic food, water, medical supplies for their homes. We need clear direction from the government to help provide access to supplies in an orderly fashion.

  1. There are news reports of trucks with supplies stranded on highways that are being denied entry into cities. These goods are our lifeblood. There needs to be a control procedure to minimize the spread of infection but ensure the flow of goods.
  2. There are reports of the police harassing essential goods store owners who stay open and delivery boys en route to make food/grocery deliveries. Services like Amazon, Big Basket, and Dunzo have stopped deliveries. Even Zomato and Swiggy are barely functioning. We need clarity on what is allowed and what is not allowed so that the police don't harass delivery boys and sabotage delivery services.
  3. We need clear safe conduct protocols on accessing services like hospitals, grocery stores, and ATMs so that when we do get out for supplies, we minimize the risk of infection. Currently, the only call to action is to stay at home. There is no further direction on what to do or how to stay safe when you're NOT at home.

Please act quickly and provide the required communication and directives to the police and other public service organizations. Without your intervention, the viral pandemic crisis will degrade into a full-blown food-water-hygiene crisis as civilization itself breaks down in our country.
