“The individuals who are ravenous can’t remain at home. That is the reason it is hard to authorize the stay at home request. In the event that the administration neglects to offer palliative to the individuals, they won’t remain at home. Yet, in the event that they are given what they will use to remain at home, they will agree.

“We have to stop the spread of Coronavirus; that is the reason it is necessary to offer palliatives to the individuals before we can keep them from going out.
