I still believe an avalanche is going to hit us, and mask wearing and lockdown will help, like Shiva blocked a huge river coming to flood by putting his head there to block it. Okay. So, we are blocking the avalanche, by universalisation of mask use and a lockdown. And what you are seeing here there in the Bombay and in all these news are the slip-throughs. So just imagine if the lockdown were not there, what could have happened?
