So what do you think the governmet should do. I dont see how anyone else would have acted differently, IMO they should have stopped incoming flights weeks ago, start stock piling PPE or masks weeks back.No matter how you look at the situation and try to blame common people, it will come back to the government. Because this government is not doing ANYTHING.
But end result would have still ended with a lockdown.
Lets trickle down to state governments, they still dont allow everything in the essential supply chain to functions, you know why because the people enforcing it have no common sense or understand how it works.
They have placed orders for millions of n95 masks and PPE and thousands of ventilator from domestic companies and just like every other country its too little too late.
They do wear masks in public, especially if you have cold, I have been to japan.Koreans and Japanese DO NOT wear masks, even when sick ( talking about the time before this epidemic) few do, just like in India.
But their government work for their welfare. They don't hide and blame citizens for everything.
