When Will the Curve Flatten?

With almost two months in enhance community quarantine (ECQ), it makes me wonder when will this pandemic end? The declaration of the Department of Health that the curve will flatten soon is quite questionable considering that they only make mass testings just recently; so the stats will always go up. How can that curve be flattened soon? How long will this ECQ take in effect? And we just wish it will end soon; when nobody gets infected with that virus!

I don't know. It is discouraging because when it flattens in one place it rises in another. Our state is showing more cases, but I think it is mostly because more testing is being done.

Yes, when there's massive testing, new cases will add up to stats. But it is good to be done so as to easily flatten the curve; here it is a lamentable one!

I wish I could answer. and I don't think if they keep on extending, the government can afford it.

Sometimes I think the governments are just trying to be encouraging. However, our numbers are well down at the moment.

So sad about the situation here; although the local governments are doing their best to remedy the situation.

Really disappointing for us too in West Bengal State of India. Just when I thought it is under control, it is showing a spike.

It is discouraging to open up soon; there could be the so-called second wave; so people should be more cautious if lockdowns are lifted.

In some places it may decrease but there are still increases in some areas.

We would all like it to end, but as to when it will, I'm not so sure anyone has the real answer. It is really hard on everyone.

When everyone becomes responsible enough to abide by the rules set by the people in charge. I mean as simple as social distancing, people fail to do.

When people worry or do not have food to eat, it's hard to keep them locked in their homes; but others are just too hard-headed to follow the rules!
