How should States and Districts Unlock?
1) The variant B.1.617.2 is a highly transmissible strain 2) Per the latest advisory from Dept of Science, Govt of India, the virus aerosols can travel up to 10 meters or 30 feet and 3) Surface transmission (where droplets of one person on a surface can infect someone coming in contact with the surface) is also happening. 4) The DST has also advised double masking and 5) A lot of stress is on effective ventilation in homes, workspaces, hutments, public transport vehicles, etc.
With these considerations in mind, we seek your inputs on how unlocking should work. How should it work in the case of malls, markets, schools, office buildings, essential public places, non essential public places, public transports like metros/locals, buses, etc.
You all in this circle know how LocalCircles based on your collective inputs has been alerting the Government and in many cases they have acted and then some cases where they haven't like restarting flights from UK despite our surveys calling for continued ban have costed the country dearly.
Our hope is that with your inputs we can come up a plan on how state and district level unlocking should be done.
We look forward to your inputs! more
