Covid-19: The Second Wave

The second wave of COVID-19 has hit us hard. The country is facing the worst COVID19 battle it has seen in a while. We have faced a lot of darkness and negativity that surround the matter. Major cities have taken a hit like never before. India is the worst country to be affected until now. COVID-19 in Maharashtra has the worst cases in the country. Cases are rising rapidly. Healthcare warriors are working day and night tirelessly to flatten the curve. Supplies are at an all-time low. That further hinders the whole process. The situation, without a doubt, is devastating. There are numerous things that you can do to help flatten the curve and help get the country back on its feet. The things that you can do, which surely you must have it by heart are:

  1. Don’t get out of the house unless absolutely necessary.
  2. If you have to go out, mask up! Double masking is always better.
  3. Get yourself vaccinated. But remember, this does not mean that you shouldn’t wear a mask. You should follow all protocols even after getting vaccinated.
  4. If you get infected, isolate yourself. Disposal of your garbage responsibly and alert the concerned authorities.
  5. If you are infected, only go to the hospital if your symptoms get worse.
  6. Educate yourself on bed availability and medication availability. Keep the information on hand so you can use it if and when required.
  7. Help each other when in need.
  8. Watch/ read the news only twice a day. Do not stress or panic.
