The world right now is in danger and our lives is in the hand of the unknown. All around the world, people are taking necessary precautions to protect themselves and their families from coronavirus. Sound preparation, based on scientific evidence, is what is needed at this time. But more than that it needs our support. It is not the pandemic that happens it is our response that occurs. In Italy in a day, it infected thousands and took away hundreds. There are currently 177 Countries, areas and territories with cases more than 2 lakh 34 thousand and 73 confirmed cases, so you see this virus is not a joke anymore. according to WHO the virus spreads rapidly from person to person even without the direct contact, it’s like a chain that continue happening in a loop and it is this loop which we needs to break down. We need to break this cycle by human intervention and how can we do that? By staying inside our house on a serious note. We call it a lockdown, many say it’s a violation of personal rights but on the global level, is it really? Yeah, maybe it is but that’s for our own concern. We have to trade a little of this freedom for the greater good of the world. Acceptance is the major key that plays a crucial role over here. This quarantine may have proved biggest in the world history but this quarantine is exactly what will help us keep ourselves and our loved ones safe. And by doing this we can simultaneously flatten the curve. We can overcome the coronavirus epidemic. BUT as it is said that public polices needs both sides of agreements. Quarantine is extremely exceptional but also needed. We need to cooperate with the authorities and with ourselves as well to fight this. And I know that we all have the resilience and courage to do this. It is our civic duty. Some methods can do a big benefit and some methods can fail, but after all we all our humans, remember tough time needs tough measures. These measure either will work or fail but hope and try is what we need to do at the time of national emergency. Facing a global pandemic, every nation needs its people support. Our world needs your support more than ever now. Choice is yours.
