So they’ve decided to extend the nationwide lockdown. It’s a good move in my opinion. But I disagree with the idea of bringing back the mass population of Indian ex-pats in UAE and other countries.
The best move would be financially and emotionally supporting them through the embassies. Give them proper quarantine awareness and move them to isolation centers under the Indian embassy’s supervision.
COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or speaks. Traveling puts everyone at risk. Or they should travel as mini-groups.
