Damn stupid idea! Seriously it’s going to create a lot of loopholes for those who intend to abuse it. And hence creating more covid cases. This govt has no brains and no ability to handle this pandemic. By coming out with this stupid idea only shows that there’s no proper thot into it. Only just as they like, you are trying to gain popularity or what? G15, the ppl will know what to do.

Daily positive numbers for all states still very high. Fully vaccinated can still get infected. It would be wise not to open the floodgate now. There's always video call to be connected with your loved ones. It is better to be safe than sorry.
