This lockdown meant for good to minimize the spread of the novel coronavirus is turning out to be a curse instead of blessing.
Apart from the economic decline which is understandable, other incidences have risen which further complicates the matter.
- Some people who have been quarantined are escaping from the quarantine location thus spreading the disease. Mostly it arises from fear.
- Police are taking the lockdown to extreme. People are beaten mercilessly and there have been people who have died under the hands of the brutal police.
- In Punjab, India a police officer lost a hand when a group of Indians engaged the police in a fight. They were arrested after about three hours of standoff and negotiation.
