People and governments are starting to squirm with discomfort. The government relaxed some rules in areas not classified as containment zones. The only publication reporting this so far is this shady-looking one although some mainstream news outlets may pick it up soon. However, it is being reported on TV and people are talking about it, so rest assured this is ground reality.
While some may believe this is a good idea given restrictions have not been lifted in containment zones, it helps to pause and think about how these containment zones came to be demarcated in the first place. No rigorous testing was done: containment zones are simple areas where cases exist. In other words there may be cases in regions besides these as well—in those which the state government has opened up in some measure—but we just do not know it yet. Personally, I feel this is not a gamble worth taking. I hope I am proven wrong.
