When the coronavirus outbreak was new in 2020, it created panic worldwide. As the issue got bigger, fumigation and sanitization in public places began and the city started seeing people in masks. Very soon, a nation-wide lockdown was announced and people started panic buying and the nation saw an exodus of migrant/daily wage workers trying to make their way back home by foot and those who could not, sought refuge in temporary shelters or popularly called migrant camps created by the municipal corporation. The citizens of Bengaluru stepped up to the cause and helped poured in for the poor at these camps. While the longing to go home existed, they were safe and sound. The government started arranging allowing domestic travel and opening up places such as liquor stores, book stores and sports complexes which had minimal or no contact at all such as tennis, and later on allowed microbreweries to open and sell the existing stock until unlock 1 when the rest of the commercial businesses such as malls opened and dine-ins were allowed to only serve food, no liquor. Educational institutions and all other commercial establishments were slowly opening up.
