In a world full of gloom, tanker owners are the only ones smiling
“There is now delay in discharging that oil because refineries have cut production. So, tankers are waiting at the port’s anchorage for as much as 12 days to get the cargo out,” the industry executive said, adding that a tanker is currently waiting at the anchorage of New Mangalore port for the last ten days to discharge the cargo.
So this cargo is not unloadable to ISPRL.

Isn't it nice if the central government makes policies favourable to non tier-I cities addressing properly migrant workers woes & rectifying population distribution anomalies? - Covid-19 crisis rekindles debate on decentralization of Karnataka, Why businesses shifting out of China may not come to India. The central and the state governments have failed to sell cheaper production destinations. Karnataka government has to promote tier-II/III cities by reduced taxes and places with power plants & enough water by reducing electrical & water tariffs. India need to show that tier-II/III cities are well placed to compete with southeast asian nations by preparing a separate policy to promote tier-II/III cities. This is needed for Mangaluru as we expect a lot of gulf returnees, which have totally failed to take care of Indians, and also other tier-II/II cities of the country as lot of migrant workers returned to home may not like to suffer again by going to far off places for a temporary job. Better if DK's economic revival plan for future includes a plan on how to convert unorganized jobs to organized jobs so that we can get enough supply of migrant workers resources for permanent settlement here.

Some factors that might have contributed to containment may be weather, weak variant of covid-19, coconut-based foods etc.

One worrying issue is all who died due to virus in DK are women. It was predicted that more male will die due to drinking and smoking habits. We can not say this difference is due to age as there were men also of the same age group. Otherwise only difference between women and men is men get exposed to sun more than women.

Whether good rapid test kits are available in DK? Or whether there is ICMR approved laboratory facility in Tulunadu to conduct such tests without kits?

Health Ministry cautions on use of plasma therapy for coronavirus, says it can be harmful as still being tested

Why it is tested in tier-I cities? Can't it be tested in tier-II cities? By funding projects in tier-I cities the politicians & bureaucrats have shown their concern about welfare of real estate mafia of tier-I cities at the time of crisis also. Their action is supporting further migration to tier-I cities. That is worrying.

Migrant workers from other states stranded at Old Port in Mangaluru
Prof Magadha told TOI that migrant workers from Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Tamil Nadu were living at Old Port, which has a meagre two lavatories. “As a result, many of the men have taken to open defecation. The government must take note of their plight and ensure they are provided all basic amenities,” he added.
‘Port is cleaner’

The team of experts found that nearly a month-long hiatus in fishing activity had brought about a transformation at the Old Port. The quality of water of the sea lashing at the port was much better, while the harbour itself looked much cleaner, they said. They also pointed to the noticeable absence of the odour of fish and diesel.
Dakshina Kannada population is falling due to out-migration to tier-I cities at the same time we have in-migration issue that is not leading to increase in population as it is just floating population. We need to have a plan for creating permanent jobs for migrants and letting them to settle here permanently. Otherwise we will also become a burden on country like tier-I cities. The funny economic statistics have created a myth that megacities earn more GDP to the country than others. But I say if population & economic distribution done properly then the country can earn & save more than what these statistics show now and in addition environmental cost will be reduced.

Decision on inter-district travel within 2 days

That means the authorities don't have plans to start economic activities soon. But we don't want in-migration of migrant labours from other districts for at least a year (expecting India to be totally free of coronavirus by that time).

App having both features (limited permission with monitoring) is the best option - a teacher can assign works and monitor how much time a student spent on it.

Every technology has loopholes, those loopholes have to be fixed instead of rejecting the technology. But till the loopholes are fixed educationists & parents have to worry.
Survey ordered to lay groundwork for e-learning
Citing the example, where electronics major Samsung had provided tablets to select government schools, to foster e-learning, Kumar said these tablets can be used only for learning content.
Good that tablets can only be used for e-learning. How about building this feature with password as posted earlier to all mobilephones/computers so that parents need not spend money for separate tablet for e-learning. Otherwise there will be heavy demand for this type of tablets when schools force them on parents.

How is our floating student population is doing? Whether all of them have gone back to their home or staying in hostels?

Prisons in DK, Udupi set up quarantine facilities for inmates

2,000 stranded abroad may reach Mangaluru after lockdown
Referring to the arrival of persons stranded abroad, Mr. Poojary said that passengers hailing from Dakshina Kannada and Udupi can be quarantined in Mangaluru, while other passengers, after screening, can be sent to their respective places for quarantine.
Where will they be quarantined? Is there enough space for quarantining all 2,000 (minus undivided DK) in Wenlock Hospital? Or will they be quarantined in hotels?

District in-charge Secretary V. Ponnuraj expressed concern over people under-reporting fever because of fear, during the first round of house-to-house survey by Accredited Social Health Activists.
“In the first round, we found only 174 cases of SARI (severe acute respiratory illness) and ILI (influenza like illness) cases. The second round of survey is under way now,” he said and called upon elected representatives to make people aware that COVID-19 infection will not lead to death.
When will second round of sampling be done for First Neuro Hospital case as results of first round already announced? In Padarayanapura case they got positive results after second round!

So, it was three days burst on the curve with 4 testing positive. Why women are dying is another concern.

But people of Mangaluru seemed to be more relaxed now. More traffic on roads inspite of Coronavirus making an entry to the city for the first time with a count of 2.

Primary discussions are held with regard to the testing of such people when they enter the district, check post procedures and where to quarantine them.
Udupi does not have its own Coronavirus testing laboratory and the DC wants to invite problems again so early! But if it is one time travel then it is fine - Govt. to allow one-time travel but Udupi should keep demanding for testing laboratory.

State and Centre differ on red zones

The state government always had tendency to punish other districts also if the parched district was not well. This was to favour the real estate mafia so that the value & demand of real estates in the parched region won't go down due to developments in the other regions.

Mangaluru: DK features as Orange Zone in Centre’s new list

Lockdown day 38: Two new corona positive cases in DK, none in Udupi
2 more test positive for Covid-19
Two more Covid-19 positive cases reported in Dakshina Kannada

01-05-2020 : 02-24-09-03-12
30-04-2020 : 01-22-07-03-12
27-04-2020 : 02-21-07-02-12
26-04-2020 : 01-19-05-02-12

It was a burst of 6 positive cases spanning over four days.

Whether we are finding more number of cases because of increased testing speed? How many number of samples tested per day now? Good if we are finding them out quicker now before the infection spreads into others.

Today sounds better without any case.

Thokkottu: Containment area in Mangaluru denotified
One more containment zone in Dakshina Kannada denotified
The district presently has eight containment zones at specific areas of Sampya and Uppinangady in Puttur taluk, Thumbe, B Kasba and Narikombu villages in Bantwal taluk, First Neuro Hospital, Kakkebettu, Padavu villages and Boloor in Mangaluru City Corporation limits. The containment zones pertain to 14 both active cases under treatment and those who have succumbed to the pandemic in the district, which has recorded three deaths.

How about making a coastalwood investigation movie based on this story? Anyone reserved the title 'Patient Zero'? We have time till May 17 to write down a story. There are many other attractive titles like 'Asha Worker', 'Flattening the Curve', 'Heat Map', 'Border Blockade', 'Orange Zone', 'Containment Zone', 'Primary Contact', 'Secondary Contact', 'Asymptomatic Carrier', 'Surgical Mask', 'N95 Mask', 'Face Shield', 'Supply Chain', 'Booze Ban', 'Aarogya Setu', 'Telemedicine', 'Plasma Therapy', 'Vaccine Candidate', 'Phase 3', 'Bioterrorist' etc. There are already movies titled 'Green Zone', 'Yellow Zone', 'Red Zone', 'The Hot Spot', 'Isolation Ward', 'Quarantine', 'Control Room', 'War Room', 'Lockdown', 'Zero Tolerance', 'Pandemic', 'Ventilator', 'Swab'. Here are some hints for stories - 1 2.

Can add this too the movie story.

Startup pledges to deliver 1 million face shields

Any startup in Tulunadu working on electric face mask? 1 2

I think it would be better to have electric fans everywhere in PPE gowns/PPP suits or 2 to get cool filtered air but fans should be light & silent as much as possible. And entire PPE should be reusable 1. And electric fans are 'positive pressure fans' generating extra air pressure inside PPE to provide protection against contamination due to damage in PPE gown (not sure whether this extra air pressure can be generated by using positive pressure fans). (One here is reusable but without any air filter so I think it needs connection to air/oxygen supplying cylinder always).

Alternatively PPE can be cooling garment 1 2.

Aleternatively if you have a super laboratory then can copy & combine all these features for a hitech PPE - 1 2 3.

Is it possible to develop & manufacture such type of fans in Tulunadu? All plastic parts of PPP suits or PPE including fans can be manufactured in proposed plastic park in future. Anyway ISPRL is fully loaded already to keep cost of plastic cheap at least for sometime.

Why people have to gather at MCC? Can't officials visit them?

Chaos at Goldfinch City after migrant labourers told to assemble, then denied entry

The political parties should have some vision & should show more interest in woeing migrant workers to stay back by helping them on this. If migrants are allowed to go back then how Tulunadu economy can bounce back once lockdown is withdrawn?

Why these parties didn't distribute the money to migrant workers instead of KSRTC for their return ticket? Did they help migrant workers with food & shelters? Okay, now these party volunteers can go to farms & plantations and help in harvesting as workers are not available.

The district authorities should not allow any worker to come back till crisis is fully mitigated in India as migrants' home districts/states are getting worst affected by the disease than our district.

Over 200 KSRTC buses ferry migrant workers
80 pc KSRTC drivers say they cannot return to DK

Reverse migration of workers hits plantation sector hard in Karnataka
However, some migrant workers, like Devesh from Jharkhand, have stayed back after plantation owners provided them accommodation. Mr. Devesh who works at an arecanut plantation in Sullia taluk of Dakshina Kannada district said four of his family members earn about ₹2,000 a day for 20 days in a month. Back home, they cannot earn even ₹1,000 a day, he said elaborating his decision to stay back.
How many construction companies in Mangaluru could retain their migrant work force? Whether enough workers are available for all maintenance works to be carried out before monsoon?

Anyway our own migrant workers have returned/returning back so scarcity should come down to a small extent. Let us see how many of gulf returnees can compensate this requirement.

Lodges in Mangaluru been identified for quarantining abroad returnees
Expats upset over no evacuation flights from Gulf to state

I think from other countries there is no heavy rush so can be evacuated easily. Evacuation from gulf countries requires more preparation & hence time. The government may be waiting for ships to reach there first so that everyone don't rush to airports! Even airports in Gulf countries may not have enough staff to support all evacuations to happen in the first week itself hence staged evacuations.

Lockdown day 42: Dakshina Kannada corona tally increases by 1, no new cases in Udupi
Karnataka: One more tests COVID-19 positive in Mangaluru
Mangaluru: Third member of family tests coronavirus positive

And including this fresh patients primary and secondary contacts how many more samples are waiting to be tested?

In 11 districts, coronavirus cases doubled faster than Karnataka average

DK doubling rate is 12 days.

COVID-19: Three more test positive in Dakshina Kannada
Five members of family in Boloor now affected by Covid-19

After these three cases doubling rate might have increased drastically.

Another burst of 4 cases in two days. The reason is delay in testing. How many days it takes test result to come out after swab sampling is done? In totality, we have to see the delay in term of days to announce test results of primary & secondary contacts of a fresh patient after that patient is tested positive. If we can reduce this delay then doubling rate will come down drastically as we are able to isolate patient before they can spread disease. Currently we have ability to test around 200 samples per day at Wenlock. If total number of primary & secondary contacts are less than 200 then result can be announced next day itself. For the time being as our testing rate is slow tertiary & even quaternary contacts might be already start spreading the disease.

The DC said that the girl had reached Bagalkot in March. “There were no coronavirus positive cases either in Udupi or nearby districts then. Therefore, she is not likely to have contracted the virus in Udupi. As the girl had left from Udupi before lockdown, there is no need for people here to be anxious about it,” he said.
Only worry is if migrant workers are allowed to come back before the disease is totally eliminated from India.

Dr Ganapathi, team's Bubble Helmet brings major relief to COVID-19 battle
Mangaluru doctors develop innovative 'bubble helmet' to help patients fight COVID-19
The team is led by Dr Ganapathi, medical director of Mangala Hospital and Mangala Kidney Foundation in the city. Speaking to The New Indian Express, Dr Ganapathi said, "This equipment will be revolutionary in the treatment of COVID-19. The bubble helmet completely covers the head of the patient and will be connected through a special collar on it. The device will help the patient overcome breathing problems and avoid using a ventilator."
The automatic disinfection gateway is another piece of equipment which has been developed. This is designed to decontaminate people, one at a time. It is completely controlled electronically as the sensors mounted in the chamber detect the entry of a person and start the hydrogen peroxide mist generation process.

Quarantine must for those coming from other States
Institutional quarantine must for people coming from other places

How can we know if they have come by a personl vehicle? Just by looking at sevasindhu pass? What is the guarantee that after entering any of green district they don't throw away passes? What kind of pass is needed for interdistrict movement within Karnataka and whether it can be obtained by a person with sevasindhu pass easily after throwing away interstate sevasindhu pass? Whether green district to green district movement also requires sevasindhu pass? If so, does sevasindhu pass distinguish between interstate and interdistrict movements? I don't think sevasindhu pass is required for interdistrict movements within Karnataka and people can throw out sevasindhu pass and can obtain one-time, one-day inter-district pass unless the software issuing pass identifies it through their Aadhaar or any other identification submitted for obtaining pass. If a quarantine seal is put on people at state border then seal has to be checked at district border irrespective of the kind of pass.

12 in Bhatkal test corona-positive following visit to Mangaluru First Neuro Hospital
12 test positive in Bhatkal, all primary contacts of 18-year-old woman

Mangaluru First Neuro Hospital connection – Seven more test corona-positive in Bhatkal

This should had been investigated faster by us as it has originated in a Mangaluru hospital. Now Mangaluru Laboratory has extra burden of testing samples of Bhatkal contacts. That would affect progress of testing within DK also. Now itself more than 300 samples are pending to be tested and this may go up. Hence virus may spread to more people. Tuluvas should put more pressure to open up one more testing laboratory at Udupi.

Three members of a family test positive for coronavirus on May 9
Three in Dakshina Kannada district test positive for COVID-19

Unless testing speed is increased and swab sampling of every contact is done immediately and tested within a day, this phenomenon of slow detections go on and on asslow testing gives sufficient time for infection of tertiary & further contacts.

Whether DK is now in red zone as number of live cases have exceeded 14?

DK does not have SoP for postmortem examinations

If with this if we can complete all testing within a day then we can assume that we have solved propagation issue to a greater extent.

If 60% of Covid positives in Karnataka asymptomatic then why are the authorities allowing any returnee to go home? What are the probabilities of returnees freshly affected in flight and then exhibiting symptoms after two days of reaching home? Are they allowed to go home due to lodging issue? What are the possibilities of asymptomatic patients spreading disease to family members once in home? At the one hand the government is saying disease is asymptomatic and then acting as if it is always symptomatic. This mistake may be the main reason for our sufferings due to First Neuro Hospital cases.

How long government can take care of textile workers? If cloths are not sold those workers will be jobless and government will not get tax income to help them. But instead of opening shops merchants finding out a way for home delivery could be a better solution.

The political parties should focus more on finding out a way for improving economy and creating jobs & re-employing people along with containing disease.

Alright. Let us have an award for a political party which comes up with a better solution to handle crisis. And the award is 10,000 extra votes in the next election!

Though ash gourd petha/halwa/ladoo/sandige 2 3/cookies are processed foods so better to drink juice 2 3 4 (no canned juice with preservatives please) or prepare curries at home itself for better health benefits hence we have to give importance to improve supply chain of fresh ash gourds. So, drink ash gourd juice & prepared sandige from left over dried pulp after extracting juice or make wet or dry pulp chutney or dosa 2/idly or non-diabetic kheer/payasa and best is salad (we tuluvas have good habit of adding grated coconut to salads). Try also air frying 2 ash gourd vada or skins intead of in-oil - Ashgourd skin fry. I wonder how long frozen oil-free air-fried chips can last.

Why watermelon petha is not available in market? Even pine apple petha can be tried out. But before ask some ayurvedic doctors for vata, pitta, kapha effects of these processed products. India has to develop a habit of printing vata, pitta, kapha effects on food products and along with published recipes.

Dakshina Kannada charging Rs 1200-4500 per day from repatriates for quarantine

Whether all repatriates will be tested irrespective of symptoms? If we are going to test only repatriates with symptoms then we are going to detect only 24% of infected cases as Over 76% of COVID-19 patients in State are asymptomatic. If these 76% are home quarantined then infected ones have all freedom to spread the virus to their family members. What is the difference in hit ratios of symptomatc versus asymtomatic targets? (hit means tested positive).

Dakshina Kannada delayed informing other districts about OPD patients
MANGALURU: The surge in Covid-19 cases in Bhatkal has exposed authorities sluggish attitude and lack of co-ordination between the district administrations of Dakshina Kannada and Uttara Kannada. Though Covid cases linked to First Neuro Hospital (FNH) in Mangaluru was the rise, Dakshina Kannada administration apparently did not show any urgency in sharing the information about its OPD patients with other districts that could have helped in containing spread of infection.

With three labs in coastal Karnataka whether we will be able to eliminate Covid-19 completely before start of monsoon? This is critical as temperature fall after rain may lead to faster propagation of disease - 85% correlation between temperature rise & cut in virus spread: Study. First it has to be eliminated from Andaman, Tamilnadu, Kerala then Tulunadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, North East one by one state keeping in pace with monsoon advancement. Too high humidity during monsoon may also go in favour of the virus and so against us - ‘Only 2 months to control Covid; rains, low temperature, high humidity will increase spread’. So, if these labs are commissioned faster then we are more safe to face monsoon. In summary, South India has less time available to control the disease than North India if monsoon helps the virus and hence capacity building should be faster in South India. But here is a contradictory news again - Hotter and humid weather may not stop COVID-19: Study.

A total of 2,500 people had registered in the sevasindhu portal to return to Dakshina Kannada district. Already, 150 people, stranded in Kerala, Telangana, and Tamil Nadu, have reached the district.

A huge number of people from Maharashtra and New Delhi had registered in the portal to return to the district and were awaiting approval from the governments to return.

The authorities had not given permission for those hailing from high risk states to return to the district.

Covid-19 testing lab in Yenepoya Hospital, second in DK
In fact, 82 samples were tested in the laboratory on the first day itself. Yenepoya Hospital is the first private hospital in Dakshina Kannada district to get the ICMR approval for the Covid-19 RT-PCR.
The Yenepoya Covid-19 RT-PCR laboratory is well equipped with state–of-the-art real-time PCR machine, bio-safety cabinets, a cold centrifuge and others. It has 12 medical microbiologists and technicians who are trained in molecular diagnostics.

The laboratory is currently running the tests in two shifts and plans to make it functional round-the-clock if the sample loads increase further. As many as 240 samples can be tested at the new facility per day.
Whether Yenepoya are conducting only RT-PCR tests?

Don't worry if number of positive cases go up in spikes & bursts as long as we are detecting them quickly.

The passengers who are asymptomatic will be placed under hotel and hostel quarantine.

As many as 68 samples were sent for testing on Monday. Reports of 124 samples were received on Monday, all of which were negative.

Reports of 128 samples are awaited. As many as 13 persons have been admitted for observation.
Good that number of samples to be tested has come down to 128.

Hope slowed arrival rate of returnees will keep pending samples low in future also.

Reverse migration hits plantation sector hard

Exodus of migrants likely to bleed Mangaluru's economy

Ask political parties who were encouraging migrants to go home instead of helping them to stay here for compensation! Anyway builders/constructors and industries who had not looked after their migrant force will suffer as I posted a few weeks back.

Anyone wants to write a story on how our builders & industrialists helped migrant workers can do so by giving a title as 'Covid-19' or 'Corona'.

How many builders are thinking of naming one of their future building as 'corona tǎ' or 'corona burj'?

KIADB reaches out to doorstep of land losers with compensation

We are stupid enough to allow this company to expand without shifting of HPCL R&D facility from the parched city to here. We have to do a big 'andolana' similar to 'satyagraha' for this and shifting of MRPL headquarters to here once Covid-19 crisis is over so that enough job is generated here for coastal people instead of migrating to the real estate mafia city. The parched city mafia has successfully forced us to migrate and suffer so far.

COVID-19 expert team submits interim report on First Neuro Hospital
Several patients from Kerala were treated in the hospital as inpatients and outpatients and were discharged. There is a need to collect their throat swab for testing. Patients from Chikkamagaluru, Madikeri too underwent treatment at the hospital. A detailed report on the source of Covid-19 can be known after getting report from patients from Kerala who had undergone treatment at First Neuro Hospital, said the DHO.
Whether swab testing can detect already cured cases? If goal is to find out only active patients then swab testing is fine. Better to go for antibody testing if goal of investigation is to find out who all have spread the disease further before getting cured and their contacts.

Whether any 'saliva testing' 1 2 facility planed in DK?

ಕೋವಿಡ್-19 ಭೀತಿ ನಡುವೆ ಮುಂಗಾರುಪೂರ್ವ ಸಿದ್ಧತೆ ಚುರುಕು:  1,745 ಕ್ವಿಂ. ಬಿತ್ತನೆ ಬೀಜ ದಾಸ್ತಾನು, ಮೇ ಅಂತ್ಯದವರೆಗೆ ವಿತರಣೆ

ಸಣ್ಣ ಕೈಗಾರಿಕೆ: ಕೊಂಚ ಸಹಾಯವಷ್ಟೇ ಅಲ್ಲ ; ಬೇಕು ಪೂರ್ಣ ಆರೈಕೆ 2
ಈ ಕೈಗಾರಿಕೆಗಳ ಪೈಕಿ ಹಲವು ಕಚ್ಚಾವಸ್ತುಗಳು, ಸಿಬಂದಿ, ಮಾರುಕಟ್ಟೆ- ಮೂರೂ ವಿಷಯಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಸ್ಥಳೀಯ, ಹೊರಜಿಲ್ಲೆ/ಹೊರರಾಜ್ಯ ಹಾಗೂ ವಿದೇಶ ಗಳನ್ನು ಅವಲಂಬಿಸಿವೆ. ಬಹುತೇಕ ಕೈಗಾರಿಕೆಗಳು ಶೇ. 70 ರಷ್ಟು ಸ್ಥಳೀಯ ಮಾನವ ಸಂಪನ್ಮೂಲವನ್ನೇ ಬಳಸುತ್ತಿವೆ. ಉಳಿದ ಪ್ರಮಾಣಕ್ಕೆ ಹೊರ ಜಿಲ್ಲೆ, ಹೊರರಾಜ್ಯಗಳ ಅವಲಂಬನೆ. ತಾಂತ್ರಿಕ ಪರಿಣಿತರು ಇತ್ಯಾದಿಗೆ ಹೊರರಾಜ್ಯ ಅನಿವಾರ್ಯ. ಕಚ್ಚಾವಸ್ತುಗಳಿಗೂ ಹಾಗೆಯೇ. ಮಾರುಕಟ್ಟೆಗೆ ಹೋಲಿಸಿದರೆ, ಶೇ. 60 ರಷ್ಟು ಉತ್ಪನ್ನಗಳು ವಿದೇಶಗಳಿಗೆ ರಫ್ತಾದರೆ, ಶೇ. 30ರಷ್ಟು ಹೊರ ರಾಜ್ಯ/ಜಿಲ್ಲೆಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾರುಕಟ್ಟೆ ಹೊಂದಿದೆ. ಶೇ. 10 ರಷ್ಟು ಸ್ಥಳೀಯ (ಜಿಲ್ಲೆ ಮತ್ತು ಅಕ್ಕಪಕ್ಕದ) ಮಾರು ಕಟ್ಟೆಗೆ ಸೀಮಿತ. ಇದಕ್ಕೆ ಎಲ್ಲ ಬಗೆಯ ಸಾರಿಗೆ ಸಂಪರ್ಕ ಸಂಪೂರ್ಣವಾಗಿ ಪುನರಾ ರಂಭವಾಗಬೇಕು.
ಸರಕಾರದಿಂದ ಏನನ್ನು ನಿರೀಕ್ಷಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದೇವೆ ?

1. ಸಾರಿಗೆ ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆ ಇರದ ಕಾರಣ ಸಿಬಂದಿಗೆ ವಾಹನ, ಆಹಾರದ ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆಯನ್ನು ಕೈಗಾರಿಕೆಗಳೇ ಮಾಡ ಬೇಕಾಗಿದ್ದು, ಆರ್ಥಿಕ ಹೊರೆ ಹೆಚ್ಚಾಗುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಹಾಗಾಗಿ ಸಾರಿಗೆ ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆಯನ್ನು ಆರಂಭಿಸಬೇಕು.

2. ವಾರ್ಷಿಕ ವಹಿವಾಟು ಕಾಯ್ದುಕೊಳ್ಳುವಾಗ ( ಮಾರ್ಚ್, ಎಪ್ರಿಲ್, ಮೇ ತಿಂಗಳಿನಲ್ಲಿ ನಡೆಯುವ ವ್ಯವಹಾರದಿಂದ ವಾರ್ಷಿಕ ಬ್ಯಾಲೆನ್ಸ್ ಶೀಟ್ ಸರಿದೂಗಿಸ ಬಹುದಾಗಿತ್ತು) ಭಾರೀ ಪ್ರಮಾಣದಲ್ಲಿ ನಷ್ಟವಾಗುವ ಕಾರಣ ವಹಿವಾಟಿಗೆ ಕಷ್ಟವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಆದ್ದರಿಂದ ಈ ಹಿಂದೆ ಬ್ಯಾಂಕುಗಳ ಮೂಲಕ ನೀಡಲಾಗುತ್ತಿರುವ ಶೇ. 8 ರಷ್ಟು ಓವರ್ಡ್ರಾಫ್ಟ್ ಸೌಲಭ್ಯವನ್ನು ಶೇ. 30 ಕ್ಕೆ ಏರಿಸಬೇಕು.

3. ಲಾಕ್ಡೌನ್ ನಿಂದಾಗಿ ಕೈಗಾರಿಕೆಗೆ ಅಗತ್ಯವಿರುವ ಹೊಸ ಯಂತ್ರಗಳು, ಹಳೆಯ ಯಂತ್ರಗಳ ಬಿಡಿ ಭಾಗಗಳು, ಸರ್ವೀಸ್ ಪ್ರೊವೈಡರ್ ಸಿಗುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ. ಅದಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಹೊರ ಜಿಲ್ಲೆ ಹಾಗೂ ಹೊರ ರಾಜ್ಯಗಳಿಂದ ಎಂಜಿನಿಯರ್, ಟೆಕ್ನಿಷಿಯನ್ಸ್ ಗಳ ಸಂಚಾರಕ್ಕೆ ಅನುವು ಮಾಡಿಕೊಡಬೇಕು.

4. ಶೇ. 30 ರಷ್ಟು ಕಾರ್ಮಿಕರ ಕೊರತೆ( ಕೆಲ ಕೈಗಾರಿಕೆಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾತ್ರ) ಯನ್ನು ಸರಿದೂಗಿಸಲು ಹೊರಜಿಲ್ಲೆ/ಹೊರರಾಜ್ಯಗಳ ಸಾರಿಗೆ ಸಂಚಾರ ಆರಂಭವಾಗಬೇಕು.

5.ಸಾಮಾಜಿಕ ಅಂತರ ಪಾಲಿಸುವ ಹಿನ್ನೆಲೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಪಾಳಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಕೆಲಸ ಮಾಡಬೇಕಾದ ಕಾರಣ ಕಾರ್ಮಿಕರ ಮೇಲೆ ಒತ್ತಡ ಹೆಚ್ಚುತ್ತದೆ. ಇದನ್ನು ನಿರ್ವಹಿಸಲು ಮಾರ್ಗ ಸೂಚಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಬದಲಾವಣೆ ಮಾಡಬೇಕು. ಕೈಗಾರಿಕೆ ಗಳು ಸುಸೂತ್ರವಾಗಿ ನಡೆಯವಂತೆ ಮಾರ್ಗ ಸೂಚಿ/ನಿಬಂಧನೆಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಕೊಂಚ ಸುಧಾರಣೆ ಮಾಡಬೇಕು.
Whether 'Economic Revival Plan' for Tulunadu includes all these issues?

Uphill task for coffee land to retain green status
People, who returned from Kerala and Tamil Nadu, are quarantined in government hostels. The quarantined people are complaining that there are swarms of mosquitoes in the hostels and there is no facility of separate toilets with proper water supply.
I think hostel toilets can act as disease spreading hotspots. Even though social distancing is maintained virus can survive in toilets for a longer time. Is there a way to sanitize a shared toilet after every visit? What do guidelines say?

'Namaste Trump' introduced coronavirus to India - MLC Harish Kumar

Hail the genious detective! 'P-0' of all cases are discovered. Why to waste money on further investigation? Close all unsolved cases including one of First Neuro Hospital!

Now we have got the hero and also the villans for the movie title 'P-0'. Do we need a heroine for this movie?

And here is some flashback story - 1 - based on which some twists and turns can happen in the story.

89% placement at NIT-K despite Covid-19 outbreak

NIT-K develops low-cost, reusable face shield costing only ₹12 2 3

Mangaluru receives first flight under Vande Bharat
Of the 176 passengers, 95 were men and 81 were women. The passengers included those who lost their jobs in UAE, and those whose visas have expired. Medical emergencies in the family was another reasons for some passengers to return to Mangaluru. Some of the stranded tourists from the region also came back in the flight.
Locals Oppose Quarantine for Dubai Returnees at Kodialguthu Hostel

High hotel tariff greets passengers from UAE

Which types of people are staying in AC rooms? Were they staying in AC rooms in UAE? Were they staying in AC rooms before moving to UAE? How much time these people may need to go back to their original old lifestyle?

Why the hotels are increasing tariff? Is it because of social distancing norms & hence less occupancy? Or estimated cost of prestige loss associated with Corona stigma?

Anyway every Tuluva has paid Corona price in the form of increased price of essential goods.

Mumbai-Tuluvas struggle as state govt 'goes slow' on welcoming them

The state government was going so slow on Tulunadu that it had no money to sanction even a testing lab in Tulunadu which had both international airport and waterport but had enough money for green zones without international connections.

MP Gopal Shetty gives go-ahead for Mumbai to Mangaluru bus journey

Hope the state government here will not give go-ahead for this so easily without proper arrangement to receive them. That is faster testing. Note that Gujarat, Maharashtra is having a variant of Covid-19 (L-strain) which is severe compared to what the mild variant (S-strain) we had here from Gulf countries. Fatality rate is high in both of these states 1. Kasaragod fresh four cases from Ahmedabad. Let us not do the same in hurry.

ಸರಕಾರದಿಂದ ಏನನ್ನು ನಿರೀಕ್ಷಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದೇವೆ ?
1. ಜಿಲ್ಲೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಅಧಿಕ ಮಳೆಯ ಕಾರಣದಿಂದ ಮಣ್ಣಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಫಲವತ್ತತೆ ಕಡಿಮೆಯಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಆದ್ದರಿಂದ ರೈತರು ಕೃಷಿಗೆ ಹೆಚ್ಚಿನ ಹಣ ವ್ಯಯಿಸಬೇಕು. ಹಾಗಾಗಿ ಇತರೆ ಬೆಳೆಗಳಿಗೆ ಎಕ್ರೆಗೆ ಸರಕಾರ 25,000 ರೂ. ಪರಿಹಾರ ನೀಡಬೇಕು.
2. ಕೃಷಿ ಉತ್ಪನ್ನಗಳಿಗೆ ಎಲ್ಲೆಡೆ ಒಂದೇ ಬೆಲೆಯನ್ನು ನಿಗದಿ ಪಡಿಸ ಬೇಕು. ಅದರ ಸಂಪೂರ್ಣ ಲಾಭ ರೈತರಿಗೆ ಸಿಗಬೇಕು.
3. ಜಿಲ್ಲೆಗೆ ಉದ್ಯೋಗಕ್ಕೆ ಬರಲು ಬಯಸುವ ಕಾರ್ಮಿಕರನ್ನು ಕರೆ ತರುವ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನ ನಡೆಯಬೇಕು.
4. ಕೃಷಿ ಉತ್ಪನ್ನಗಳನ್ನು ಅಂತರ್ ರಾಜ್ಯ ಹಾಗೂ ಜಿಲ್ಲೆಗಳಿಗೆ ಮಾರಾಟಕ್ಕೆ ಯಾವುದೇ ತೊಂದರೆ ನೀಡಬಾರದು.
5. ಸರಕಾರವು ಮಲ್ಲಿಗೆ ಪರಿಹಾರ ಗಿಡವೊಂದಕ್ಕೆ 500ರೂ. ನಂತೆ ಘೋಷಿಸಬೇಕು.
Why agri-products have same price everywhere? Let locals eat locally produced products with less price. Instead government should help farmers to explore markets where best prices for their products (minus transportation cost) is available. Of course, nobody can deny that there are many climate dependent crops and hence costly due to transportation & should not be our main food. Anyway we can discuss all these including interstate, international markets for all types of products in proposed globalization x localization posts.

Everyone including farmers & industrialists expects high compensation! From where should the government get money? Printing? How much the politicans of Tulunadu suffered due to fall in bribe market during lockdown? Who will compensate that?

Poor response for bus service in Udupi

From Kasaragod,

'Our heart is no longer here, please take us home'
Around 250 workers, mostly in their twenties from Lakhimpur, are in several one-room houses at Manimunda. All of them are in the construction industry, employed as painters, masons, RCC workers. "We are all frustrated here. We have got no ration for the past 15 days. My family sent me Rs 1,500 to survive here," said his friend Ramesh, a painter.
Monday morning, Ramesh's house-owner called on him. "He did not ask me for rent but asked me not to use light and fans as the power bill was running high," he said.

But the house-owner of his friends was more direct. The house-owner asked them when were they leaving and asked them to sit outside the room during the day to save power.
They put out a video saying they were not getting enough food. So, another organisation came forward to help them. "But the members of the first organisation which was supplying food provision took offence to the video and abused us and threatened to teach us a lesson," said Ramesh, who has been working as a painter in Kasaragod for the past four years.

Now, they have decided not to take food supplies from any organisation to buy their own provisions.
Ramesh said after leaving Lakhimpur, he had worked in Delhi, Gujarat and Daman and Diu. "In all these places, the work time was nine to 10 hour and the maximum I was paid was Rs 250 per day. In Delhi, the employer did not pay me for nine months and I had to run away," he said.

But in Kerala, Ramesh said, he had to work only for eight hours and got a wage of Rs 700 plus free food. "It is very good here and that's why I stayed back for four years. But my experience during lockdown is very bad," he said.

Anti-COVID-19 disinfecting robot launched in Mangaluru
The unique device is developed by Mangaluru- based robotics engineer Krishnan Nambiar, CEO and founder of Vanora Robots Pvt Ltd. The robotic platform Vanora Robot is designed as a support system for frontline fighters of the COVID-19. It is a fully functional unmanned robotic platform to disperse high doses of Type C Ultra Violet rays (at permissible level of about 300 J/m²) to destroy the structure of all bacteria, fungal spores, and many types of virus including various types of coronavirus.
COVID-19: This UV light disinfection robot can sanitise entire room in just 4 minutes

Good. Hope in next version it can climb staircase. Another smaller version may be needed for going under tables, chairs and cots or else a foldable one. Anyone in Tulunadu working on drones with UVC guns 1 2 3 4? All plastic components of drones for export can be economically manufactured at the proposed Plastic Park much cheaper than the parched city and then seaport & airport are also not far.

Yes, those who developed uvc sanitizers for food packages are idiots! 1 2 3. Anyway that much precaution is not needed now as I posted earlier.

When I talked about possible paanaka based icecandy the person sitting at the counter was slightly reluctant in the begining. Next time I want to talk about 'padengi asarụ icecream', 'bachchire or paan icecandy' and 'neera icecandy' with an icecream maker. It is nice that we have now arecanut icecream though not certified. Tender coconut icecream is any how now available worldover.

Homecoming passengers fume at lack of facilities
MLA U T Khader expressed displeasure over the lack of preparations by the district administration. “Those who had opted for the quarantine facility in government institutions were given quarantine facility in hotels. Many did get food. The district administration should ensure that such problems do not repeat when other flights land in Mangaluru,” he stressed.
Is it the fear of the disease spreading through shared toilets which forced them to cancel quarantine in government institutions? For sanitizing toilets now a locally developed robot is available but cost is also a factor.

Kannadigas stranded in Gulf allege step-motherly treatment over evacuation

Yes. There are complaints that undivided Dakshina Kannadigas are treated step-motherly by the state compared to the parched city while evacuating from Qatar though Tuluvas out number Kannadigas in Qatar!

Gulf Tuluvas have only two options to complain. Complain sitting there itself or complain afer returning to Tulunadu!

Whether special quote of 'ragi' is influenced by real estate mafia of the parched city? Job losers are from North Karnataka. They are the one suffered most due to migration & lockdown. And now for job generation why a crop of already over populated parched region! Why not main corp of North Karnataka like foxtail millet ('navane' is a siridhanya or a 'positive millet' where as ragi or finger millet is just a 'neutral millet'). I hope Kalyana Karnataka people will go for a huge protest on this. 'navane' being a siridhanya should become a brand on priority!

For Coastal Karnataka fisheries is there. Also we should see what they have selected for Kerala and Goa. And DK MP is just good in talking on SAZ.

Scientifically analyse Covid-19 deaths in DK, demands former health minister

Madras Security Printers Provides IoT-based COVID War Room for Mangaluru Smart City 2
The smart infrastructure is used for developing predictive analytics using heat maps and taking action in monitoring the movements of people (by collecting data using GPS, RFID, and Wi-Fi from mobile devices and RFID tags) as well as the periodic health status of suspected cases.

Telemedicine services ...
With all these they can solve First Neuro case easily!

Where exactly IoT used in Covid-19 war room? RFID? What about IoT usage in telemedicine?

20 from UAE who landed in Mangaluru test positive for COVID-19
She said that there were 40 pregnant women among the returnees. None of them have tested positive so far. All the asymptomatic passengers will be subjected to a second test on the 12th day. The Deputy Commissioner said that among those who test negative again, pregnant women, children below the age of 10, senior citizens aged 80 and above, and the terminally ill would be home quarantined.
If all pregnant women are sent home now what are precautionary measures taken for disease containment at their homes?

It is possible to test all the suspected throat culture in this facility and get results within the same day or at the latest by the next day.

Migrant labourers in rice mill buck trend, not going anywhere
As many 26,530 labourers had left Mangaluru as on May 15 and 40,510 migrant labourers, who have registered their names on the app 'Seva Sindhu', are ready to flee from the city. However, 80 and odd migrant labourers working in Modern Industrial Corporation’s (MIC) rice mill near Urva Market have decided not to go anywhere.

Whether flight passengers can also book PPE along with booking flight tickets and hotels? Which migrants have faced more problems to reach their home?

What are the facilities available in Mangalore Airport compared to this - Foot-operated sanitiser dispenser, UV disinfection at Delhi airport to tackle Covid-19. The link lists many like sensor-based taps in passenger washrooms, foot-operated sanitiser dispenser, sensor-based and paddle operated drinking water fountain, passenger trolley disinfection system, UVC disinfecting baggage tunnels, hand-held torch, walk-in shoe sanitizer mats, mobile disinfecting towers. Many of them are already developed by now by Tulunadu startups themselves for example mobile UVC disinfecting robot or touch-less sanitizer. Just for one or two flights now and then every precautionary gadget may not be needed but once lockdown rules are diluted further and airport starts normal operations we need all of them.

Many of those preventive measures are needed at airport, railway stations, checkposts, quarantine hotels, hospitals, fever clinics, testing laboratories etc.

We have allowed Covidaasuras team's score to surpass 50. Unless we strengthen our bowling and fielding it is difficult to restrict and flaten their score. A missed catch at First Neuro helped the opposition a lot. Now the time to enthuse fielders at airport, checkposts, quarantine hotels, hospitals and mainly testing laboratories. We have to see how much an esteemed expert who is dispatched from the board of control aka the state authorities has contributed in SWOT analysis of healthcare infrastructure here. Earlier decision of the board of control to delay testing laboratory had both physically & mentally weakened us a lot and now let us see what will happen!

Reports of 112 samples are awaited.

Seems like number of awaited samples is going down. Good, but whether samples of all neccessary contacts are collected?

From Udupi,

Migrant labourers walking to Mangaluru from Manipal stopped at Kaup, sent back

1460 migrant labourers leave for UP from Udupi

Stranded fishermen brought back from Kerala

One-year-old tests positive

Is this 11th case?

341 sample reports are awaited.

Udupi has a big backlog of samples to be tested. Lot of migrants are coming back. Hence Udupi has a huge task waiting to be completed. Whether Udupi is continuing testing of tertiary contacts?

Jeppu Patna coronavirus-positive patient's travel history sends officials into tizzy
The infected person had already moved around various places including Bantwal during the ten of his stay alone. He had travelled by different auto-rickshaws and visited a few relatives, it is said. This has given rise to an air of apprehension all over the district and the officials are at a loss how to draw up his travel history.
Lockdown not needed is fine but quarantine not needed is punishable. What is the punishment for such a negligence under Indian penal code? How many years jail? In this particular case I think punishment should be maximum since the person is educated one. Unless action is taken others will get emboldened and repeat the same mistake. Whether this is law now? - Quarantine restrictions violators may face 6 months prison in Karnataka.

The parents did not allow him to enter house but allowed to roam around!

Not publishing pictures is fine in case of patients who have followed government rules. But in this case if his picture is published then at least a few people who came into his contact will come forward for testing. In this way we can save a few lives. But alas the rules are not designed to save lives!

I think if MSEZ attract at least two jackfruit processing companies and one exit-China MNC within this year end then we can say it has performed great. As I posted #395 earlier not only jackfruit but Tulunadu can explore market for coconut, heart of palm based products can also be explored.

Many outside students & workers in Mangaluru who don't cook at home will suffer. Even a few workers who don't take home cooked food to office are dependent on hotels. My advice to students is don't eat too much maida noodles instead eat fruits. Now a days plenty of tender coconut with thick pulp is also available as a healthy substitute.

Whether quarantanees are allowed to order through food deliverers like swiggy, zomato etc?

First KSRTC bus from Mangaluru post lockdown begins journey

2. Jeppu - unknown contacts - Man walks, hitchhikes from Delhi, tests positive.

3. Guddekopla, Surathkal - unknown origin - Record spike in COVID-19 cases in Dakshina Kannada.

4. Karopady, Bantwal - unknown origin - Karopady case origin obscure.

BolliBatlu's day out

Today BoliBattlu went first to a public sector bank at Hampankatta. Bollibatlu was worried when he found one person nearing retirement among the frontline bank staff but was happy that others were youngsters. There were many other young workers working in backline. Since old people are severely affected by the virus Bollibatlu thought it would be nice if only youngsters interact with customers.

Infection rate highest among those in 20-29 age bracket
Sixty-five percent of those who died in Karnataka due to COVID-19 were aged above 60. And all other patients who lost their lives were aged above 40.
Next BolliBatlu observed one middle aged person at Hampankatta Nandini milk parlour coughing and hence ran away from there immediately.

And then in a pharmacy BolliBatlu came across a person about to sneeze lowering mask before sneezing. Obviously his good idea was not to spoil mask. BolliBatlu thanked him for teaching importance of protecting masks!

ZP officials told to take up new work to revive rural economy
Mr. Kateel said that beedi workers can be identified for issuing new job cards as the beedi industry has collapsed.
As I stated earlier home based apparel, handicraft industries are some of alternative for beedi industry. But people need to be trained in them. Demand for fashionable homemade embroidered masks may go up.

Mr. Kateel said that many youth who have returned from other States, especially from Maharashtra due to the global pandemic, are now ready to take up farming and allied activities, if they are profitable. The departments should talk to such persons on the prospects of taking up cultivation of alternative crops, other than arecanut.
We shouldn't forget 'heart of plam' while searching alternative for arecanut. Makhana (lotus seed) can be explored near waterbodies. We have to encourage cultivation of all time jackfruits. There is enough scope for jackfruit, mushroom, colocasia/taro based food processing units. Jackfruit, colocasia/taro gluten-free flours are emerging alternative for wheat flour and can be used in chapatis/rotis/breads/cakes and bakery products. Colocasia is all time vegetable but requires plenty of water and shade.

Dakshina Kannada Zilla Panchayat Chief Executive Officer Selvamani R. asked the Horticulture Department to promote vegetable cultivation in the district as Dakshina Kannada received vegetables from other districts. There is enough scope to cultivate vegetables under MGNREGA.
Region is suitable for growing asparagus. Export market for mushroom will grow day by day. Whether DK has any GI tagged vegetable like Udupi Mattugulla? What happened GI tag for Harekala Chilli?

If you look at the recent central government policy there is encouragement for sea-based processing industries like fisheries, seaweed. We have to explore organic products like products of seagrass. Seagrass based industries can be developed as home-based industries. But long term plan is needed for organic products. Better to open an organic products research centre if sufficient fund is available. DK, Udupi, UK Mps togethere has to try for the central government grant for sea based organic products research centre for fisheries & seaweeds under central government 20 lakhs grant.

And here is an example to follow while searching alternative for beedi industry.

Manipal Academy of Higher Education, National Institute of Technology Karnataka (NITK) Surathkal and Sahyadri College of Engineering and Management, among others, have been using this technology to manufacture various equipment, to fight the pandemic. Medical equipment such as face shields, respirator masks, ventilator manifolds and no touch sanitary tools have been manufactured by these institutions.
The splitter for ventilator was 3D printed at different places. NITK Centre for System Design printed the first prototype and got it tested at Mangalore K S Hegde Hospital at (Nitte deemed to be university). “We have now designed technology to manufacture 3D face masks. The production cost is high, and we will only produce them when there is an emergency need,” he added. So far, NITK Surathkal has supplied hundreds of face shields to MRPL, NMPT and other institutions.

State notifies 10-hour work shift for three months
The increase in working hours will result in unemployment as factories could terminate the services of casual and contract workers as shift hours have been increased, All-India Trade Union Congress general secretary D.A. Vijaybhaskar told The Hindu.
If demand for goods & services has gone down then companies are going to throw out workers anyway. If there is enough workdload to fulfill old orders (lockdown period) there may not be any unemployment of contract workers. Factories were closed for almost one and half months. 2 hours per day means it can be compensated in 6 months. It is judicious to compensate if employees have got salary for lockdown period. But operation with 50% staff may affect employment of both permanent & contract workers and also employer.

For attracting investment to North Karnataka state government may have to come up with separate labour laws for that region. Many of NK migrants are in utter need of jobs and for them a slight increase in working hours in new exit-China MNCs may not matter. (exit-China MNCs currently prefer Southeast Asia as production cost is low there). Of course for employment they need to improve their skills. The state government has to talk to North Karnataka migrant labourers directly for forming labour rules for that region instead of speaking to 'elite-bourgeoisie labour unions' anchored well in the parched region. The uniform labour rules across state is formed by the previous governments only to help real estate mafia of the parched city. (I don't know whether cost of living index is considered for fixing minimum wage location-wise. I have not understood why migrant workers get less wage in a costly city like Delhi compared to Kasaragod - 'Our heart is no longer here, please take us home'. Whether migrant workers get Delhi like wage in other tier-I cities also?).

Tulunadu will be safe if employment is generated in North Karnataka instead of the parched region. We should extend all support to North Karnataka's growth towards prosperity. But there is nothing wrong if we can also provide permanent jobs to them here instead of the parched city.

MLA U T Khader ridicules govt’s confusing lockdown norms on Sundays

If we peruse the lockdown rules properly we can see that there is lockdown every day from 7 PM to 7 AM. That is, the government is locking down the people during non-working hours. Sunday is a non-working day! I think the government is just trying to discourage non-productive movements.

'Udupi district equipped with all facilities to face coronavirus’ - DC
“Currently all the quarantine centres are fully occupied. So we are not taking any entries from outside states. Once the current lot is sent to home quarantine from institutional quarantine as per guidelines issued, we will sanitise all these places. In the next phase, we will receive people from the outside states. Meantime, all have to register their names in Seva Sindu app. We are looking forward to receive new set of guidelines to be implemented after May 31.

“We have already requested Yenepoya Hospital Mangaluru for testing samples as the samples are more in number. As per government order, we are required to do swab tests after 14 days, but we are delayed due to the non-availability of laboratories in the district. Hereby, I urge all people in quarantine and also their family members not to panic and help the authorities to do their work,” he said.
“In Kundapur, a 125-bed block is ready at taluk Hospital, 75-bed COVID block at Karkala taluk Hospital, 90 beds at SDM Hospital Udyavar, and Bhuvanendra Hostel with 50 beds are now slated to function. And in case in the future if we require more, the district administration is all prepared address the issues.
