Nowadays, People are active on social media and expressing their views fearlessly. A Facebook user commented,” unless and until the people take it seriously and start following the protocols in place…this won’t be realized…If the authorities’ measures are not enough to bring this about, I envision more serious, and additional steps will have to be brought to the fore…it must be controlled, otherwise the econ. Otherwise devastated…when that happens…crime will automatically increase…therefore people…choose poison.”
