    Measures to prevent travel beyond one's area may reduce the pandemic. Good example was in Melbourne where people were not allowed social travel beyond 5 Kms. SL had curfew for New Year, Vesak and Katine when numbers of sick was much less.

    It's the affluent people who travel. You should check all the residents in the newly constructed highrising buildings. There must be clusters and spreading from there. And don't forget Royal Park.
