By the end of the day we'll cross 5000 cases. And we really don't know how to tackle it or when it will gonna stop. We failed at minimising the cases even in several lockdown. And now when the time has come to be more responsible, we're conducting exam. #PatnaUniversity https://t.co/WlqLbt9Id7— Sumit_Sinha🇮🇳 (@normie_af) June 7, 2020
