    I am a student of FSc and I think that in some aspects the lockdown is a good idea but when we talk about our study losses than I thick the preventive measures are enough because we also studied online and I personally think that we can’t focus and take it as just fun , so for proper study colleges are best option to go and after all it’s about our future and career. So we can’t bare any risk .
