Last days of the India season, people were still huddling closely together around him. If one of them had the virus at that time, Rishikesh town inhabitants would be wiped out by now.
Even in London during home trip stopover early March, he was oblivious to the threat. They drove round London, walked about in Camden market, clearly risking the well-being of girls and guys who were traveling with him. One of the guys did not feel good about it, but kept to himself.

My local sangha leader was wondering around India at that time. They made trips to Dharamsala to see the Dalai Lama. So happy go lucky. A day after the sangha leader flew out from Delhi airport, India went into lockdown. Lucky few.

International sangha team would have known about the number of people who are coming from affected countries at that point. But nobody had the insight that it could become so bad like what we see today. So much for claims of being enlightened.

Could you detail activities ongoing in MS like how Sahara71 described them above? In addition, are there gatherings in the main satsang hall where devotee are in close proximity with each other? Or are people isolated in huts? Another question which may be needless would be whether moo is still sleeping with the 'others' or is he sleeping by himself?
Fresh vegetables are grown in MS sisterland. Are these sufficient for MS consumption, or devotees have to go to town to purchase food?
There seems to be no reported case in Odemira. Surrounding towns like Santiago Do Cacem, Sines and Silves have been affected. No reported cases is no guarantee that people are not affected, because genuine cases may not be detected, or confirmed by testing, or not reported at all.
Assuming that Odemira remains free of covid-19, and devotees in MS and her sisterland lock themselves in and only rely on own-grown food, they may be able to avoid this disaster. It only takes one person to go to an infected town and bring it back to the others. Hopefully this will not happen.

By detailing the living arrangements in MS as of the present moment, you would provide insight on whether it is presently safe to remain in MS. This could also be used by state authorities to shut it down if it compromises current state guidelines.
Thank you and keep safe.
