The rising attack of the deadly Corona Virus has forced the Indian government to take this significant step of the 21 days lockdown in the whole country. PM Modi says that this lockdown is essential to save India, to save its every citizen, you, your family and each one of us in the nation. India has taken this significant step as “Social distancing is the only way to break the cycle of infection”. These 21days are very essential, and it is a kind of warning to all of us to stay inside the home because if we do not follow this, then the whole country would be set back 21 years and many families would be destroyed.
Here is the list of the major reasons for which the Indian government has decided the lockdown nationwide:
• The World Health Organization has declared this COVID-19 as a pandemic.
• Coronavirus is a spreadable disease, and it infects almost 3-4 people in a week & this chain goes on increasing.
• Social distancing is the only way to break this chain of Coronavirus.
• Many countries have been successful in controlling the increasing effect of Coronavirus through social distancing.
• Countries like Italy & Spain are affected a lot due to their casual behaviour towards social distancing.
• Around 12 Lakhs people who have tested positive for Coronavirus and around 60,000 people have died in the world, as of 4th April 2020.
• Social distancing will eventually lead to a decrease in spread, morbidity, and mortality due to the disease.
• Not only India but, experts from all over the world are practicing & advising self-isolation as this is the only key to protect yourself.
Therefore, these are some of the reasons for the 21days lockdown in INDIA, not only you, your business but the whole country & its economic condition is getting affected due to this lockdown, but we need to save our lives. India is paying a substantial economic cost for this lockdown maybe, because if we will not follow this then everything will be gradually destroyed. This thing was very well explained in our PM’s speech that “Jaan hai to Jahaan hai.”
What is Social Distancing and Why it is essential?
Social distancing is the term which means reducing the interaction with different people and managing the distance of at least 6feets between the other person and you. This measure has been taken to slow the effect of the contagious disease, which is spreading very quickly. Social distancing on a large-scale means of stopping the gathering of 10 or more than 10 people, cancelling of different events, marriages, closing huge buildings where a lot of people gather. Whereas on a small-scale, the procedures consist of practicing good hygiene, limiting the in-person contact with people around you.
The very protective measure like social distancing is very essential as this method has been proven by experts to flatten the curve of disease, i.e. it helps in decreasing the number of cases from a contagious illness. If we gather in huge amount (may be 10 people), then that will result in a large number of sick people with the infection.
There are some of the observations as well as reports from the experiences of the past pandemic of the Coronavirus in China indicates that we must take a preventive measure of social distancing at its earliest to protect and save our lives. As self-isolation is the adequate measure of the swing down the effect of the virus. The health specialists advise this that if the social distancing has been practiced earlier by the people of China, then the chances of reducing the Coronavirus impact would have been reduced by 66%, 86% and 95% respectively.
Therefore, we must follow the recommendations of the health departments for controlling disease and taking prevention. Together with this practice, we can slow down the transmission of disease and can prevent more such cases of Coronavirus.
