  1. Against the high possibility of people starving to death in their homes where unemployment was already rife, the government has an obligation to give people money and food handouts to ensure it is a people-centred government and infact this is what all other governments are doing across the world. Short of that COVID-19 will be a less threat than starvation and even more challenges on a moral, economic and cultural obligation will combine in a fairly explosive and uncontrollable manner.

  2. Against the high possibility of people starving to death in their homes under the Lockdown, when unemployment was already rife, the government has an obligation to give people upkeep money and food handouts (through out the nation, without selection) to ensure it is a people-centred government and infact this is what all other governments are doing across the world. Short of that COVID-19 will be a less threat than starvation and even more challenges on a moral, economic and cultural obligation will combine in a fairly explosive and uncontrollable manner with time.
