Social distancing way to fight covid-19

 

Coronavirus is massively spreading all across the world. It has been declared as a global pandemic as it can spread very easily using humans as its carrier and as soon as an infected person comes into physical contact with other it spreads into his body and causes various diseases, mostly pneumonia that leads to death of a person. It has killed many people all over the world and is gaining speed to kill more. There is no cure yet developed to fight with this virus and everyone in the world is helpless. The only way to treat an effected person is self- isolation and proper treatment. This virus is moving very swiftly and increasing the number of cases and deaths. And, now it needs to be controlled otherwise it would kill every single human on this planet. Everyday a person may meet or come in contact with hundreds of people leading to spread this virus massively. It is like a non-stop car which cannot be controlled until and unless a barrier is used. Reports of WHO says that every person should maintain a gap of 6 feet when they meet or communicate because when an infected person touches, breathe out or cough they expel virus to others. One solution to this pandemic that every country has agreed is social distancing. It is the only weapon that could control this situation. This method of social distancing should be followed by everyone world wide. It means to avoid physical contact with any person and maintain distance even if you want to converse with anyone. Avoiding the foreign culture of handshake and adapting the Indian culture of doing namaste. By following this method of social distancing the rapid growth of coronavirus can be stopped and the people already infected can be treated well. Everyday there are many places where you come in physical contact with other especially, in India where there are many over-crowded places and if in that places people are exposed to this virus than no one can stop or control it. India has many slum areas where people are not too aware and educated regarding this devil, the worst hit would be them as they live in such small places really close to each other, even if only one person gets exposed to the virus the whole slum has to suffer. Also, the slum people are not able to get better treatment leading them to die, so social distancing is must for them. But, currently situation is getting more worse as in some countries virus is spreading through community which is the stage 3. And, to fight this everyone needs to stay at their respective places and a lockdown should be declared which is already followed by many nations including India. In India lockdown has been declared so that social distancing could be well maintained. Lockdown is definitely a good way to maintain social distancing as, through lockdown the effected person cannot meet any other person and there is no way of spreading virus. Also, an infected person can also identify that he/she has been infected by coronavirus and can get treatment without infecting others. This virus takes time to show its symptoms due to which a person remains unaware and spreads it unknowingly to cut this chain lockdown is necessary. Every country in the world is facing a huge trouble in fighting this problem, no one can expect situations like these where already everyone was facing financial crisis and cherry on the cake is coronavirus. In countries like America and Italy where the virus is spreading on community level it is really hard to control. These countries got too late to adapt social distancing leading to massive spread. India got lucky in this case as social distancing is followed well and also lockdown is declared to avoid any kind of transmission. Basically, this virus form its grip through physical contact and if this is avoided through social distancing than coronavirus can be removed before it makes your society its home. Social distancing is the only medicine the whole world has at this time. Right now, social distancing is the best shield we can use to keep ourselves safe. Social distancing is completely not a cure to end this situation, but a helping hand as the key behind social distancing is that when people would maintain physical distance with each other than the chain of this virus would break and no more can come under its trap. Also, the people carrying it can be identified for treatment and isolation. In this way this virus could be stopped. Except for this there are some people who do not understand this situation of national emergency and that can prove to be really expensive. Social distancing is considered to be a tough task as everyone has to leave their habits of shaking hands or touching each other, but its the only alternative. This method will prove to be effective only if everyone take it seriously and adapt it.
