The Don’ts: What should not be done?
Don’t touch your face
Generally, we all have a habit of touching our face, nose or eyes quiet frequently. Doing so could be an easy entry for the virus thus Hold that thought right there! Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth at any cost.
The best way to cure things is by taking preventative measures. After all, prevention is better than cure. Don’t spit in public.
Don’t Leave the house
Don’t leave your house. As India has announced a complete lockdown, stay at your home with your family and avoid traveling. Don’t roam in streets or roads unless having a medical emergency or any extremely unavoidable piece of work. This is the least we can do, a few days lockdown can add years to everyone's lives
Most important thing is, don’t panic, keep the faith and take preventive measures. The situation is tough right now but things will get better. There is sunshine after every storm! Many cases have been cured by the team of our dedicated doctors, nurses, and medical teams working 24X7. So, there is hope.
How can social distancing help?
Some call it social distancing, some call it physical distancing. While we are all quarantined in our houses, we cannot and, should not go outside but in an emergency, if you have to, make sure that you maintain a distance of at least 1.5 meters from one another.
It is important that we all practice self-quarantine and social distancing by:
- Staying at Home
- Avoiding social gatherings
- Canceling events
- Working from home
- Not visiting relatives and friends
With these steps, the transmission of this disease can be controlled and brought down. This will help in flattening the curve.
There is hope…
Every cloud has a silver lining. In tough situations like these, we get to know the real power of unity. The world has come together as one; there are no boundaries now.Different nations and their Tech companies are coming forth to combat the situation. And if used efficiently, Technology can beat coronavirus outbreak. Other than tech giants, NGOs are also actively participating in this war.
Eminent organizations like WHO, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, various NGOs, states government and other local bodies are on their toes to tackle this crisis. We need to stay positive and hopeful as that is what makes life worth living.
Together, we can and we will #FighCoronavirus provided we act responsibly and take effective measures. A lot of cases have been cured till now and extensive research is going on across the world to find remedies to this pandemic. It will take time, but we will get back on track.
We just need to stay at home and learn how to utilize the time. To help you live the best of your time in lockdown, you need to have a Time Management Rule Book handy and you would be able to make the best of it.
This fight is one of a kind, we have to do nothing but stay put. We'll get through, together.
Stay Home, Stay Safe.
