    Opening of gardens is maybe a good idea but still bad at the same time. It’s good if we take walk regularly, exercise or breathe fresh air but they should not open gardens because this can spread the novel virus in a large scale. From my side, they should bot do this. Anyways, great article. Thanks for this information….
