As Unlock enters the third week, a visible lack of public confidence

Restaurants and shopping malls opened last week after a gap of over two months. But there was no rush of people flocking to these places even after having been bottled up inside their homes and localities for so long. Just use the parking index – the ease with which you get a spot near your shopping destination will tell you the story of public confidence or the lack of it. A fortnight into Unlock 1.0, these places bear the telltale signs of the continuing uncertainty in the public mind. Two weeks (since the unlock down began) is a short time – but enough to serve as an indicator. There is visible reluctance in the public to go full-on into the pre-lockdown life.
