It’s been about 10 months and we are still fighting with a microscopic coronavirus, the complete world is paused for the last 6-7 months but now people have started stepping out of their houses either for jobs or for other necessary work. However, the country is not opened completely yet but unlocking is continuous with some restrictions.
With the unlocking and reopening of the services in the country, the risk of virus increasing exponentially, the virus has infected crores of people throughout the world, and about 62 million cases (at the time of writing) alone in India, lakhs of people lost their lives, many are still isolated. So, these figures are enough to know how calamitous this virus is.
Now, what we can do in such a situation? How we can fight or prevent us from the infection when almost everything is opened and life turning out to be normal with an alarming number of increasing cases. The viable solutions are:
Close yourself inside your home and don’t interact with anyone.
This is an inefficient solution because in the initial days of the infection our government tried to implement this solution which leads to various serious problems.
Go to the work wearing masks and using sanitizer frequently.
This method is also 90% efficient because if you wear a mask, do not touch your face, and also sanitize your hands frequently it will only protect your hands and face; not your gadgets or groceries and other stuff you buy from the market. The virus can reside over any surface for hours, and it is tough to sanitize vegetables and other stuff you buy from stores where thousands of people are visiting daily.
