    Medical colleges should definitely be closed, there is going to be a PPE shortage soon if cases continue to rise and my university’s hospital has already stopped taking in more COVID patients. There are no SOPs being followed in the hostel and colleges are also hiding cases

    i mean cases are rising at an alarming rate so they should be closed at least for two weeks to let the situation settle down
