Corona virus (COVID-19) has shown the limits of human strengths. We have been successful in learning and conquering the habitats of macroscopic species and finally lowered our heads in front of a microscopic virus. However, as quarantine is essential not only for affected ones and the unaffected should take similar precautions, staying within our homes in extreme hygiene is quite a different story to be told. Let us hope that the knowledge and wisdom we gained through all these years would help us to get rid of the current scenario.
Today's situation takes me back to a few years before, stories of how quarantine was manipulated in those years. During those years, there was no proper or scientific treatment available to dreaded diseases like chickenpox, malaria, dengue fever etc. Affected people were taken to isolated one-room buildings and were let to spend the rest of their life within those four walls. They were denied any contact with the public. Special buildings were even built by the municipalities for the purpose. But time has much altered the treatment patterns. Isolation, today, doesn't mean such supportless terrible conditions. Today, there are all possibilities available to treat any kind of disease.
As far as I understand, it is necessary that people be more cautious about the situation. While some people are frightened by the masks and sanitizers, unusual to regular days, others are little careful about their health. This even result in causing the disease spread to more people. Let us follow the instructions of public health experts and doctors and the government as well. They are pretty sure to help us any time. Let us all be a bit more careful about our health. I remember watching in movies that during the olden times people entered home only after washing their hands and feet with some fresh well-water. Today, I can witness people frequently washing their hands with handwash or soaps which is just a little unusual to their routine. Still, its not that tough. People need to be more understanding since most of 'em are still not clear with the idea of not comin' out of homes or stopping immigration or emigration in their countries. It would only turn worse if they fail to follow the instructions of the health experts.
Yes, let us not be frightened but let us be more cautious!!!
