COVID19 is now a full blown pandemic. The entire world has come to a halt. India is still at a phase, where with proper precautions, we may protect ourselves.

One of the most important points is MASS TESTING. As of now, the government of India is only testing people who have come from outside or come in direct contact with those coming from outside. They are refusing to conduct tests on normal citizens. This means there are more and more cases going undetected and thus the entire community shall become affected. Late diagnosis also means less effective treatment.

S.Korea tests 20,000 people everyday. They went from one of the worst affected to know having a mortality rate of 0.7 percent. 

US was following the same practise as India. They changed their protocols to test everyone and now the infections are severe.

So, the government needs to 

1. START MASS TESTING. Do not refuse to test people. 

2. RECRUIT THE PRIVATE SECTOR TO HELP. Government hospitals alone can not conduct tests for the entire population. 

3. SET UP MORE AND MORE ISOLATION WARDS IN EVERY HOSPITAL, GOVERNMENT AND PRIVATE.

An article from NDTV also conveys the same. Head over there for more information:
