We are in a really terrible situation this time. The second wave has become much stronger than the first wave of coronavirus infection. That is to say, devastation is coming like a tsunami. The damage may not have been as great as we had hoped. That’s why at the beginning of the second wave, many people have the idea that since the first time there was no major injury, it may not happen again. As a result, people are not being told to be careful, but there are already injuries.
Now if we cannot implement the self-defense strategies properly from the individual to the state level or if we make a mistake in this case, then we have to pay big compensation. People have to understand that there is no way to survive without the highest strategy of self-defense. The government can only help. There will be no benefit in rushing to the hospital or seeking treatment after being affected by one’s own negligence or indifference. The way people are being infected but at one stage there may be no way of treatment. Now he is back to the situation. As a result, everyone has to wear a mask, ensure social distance, follow the government’s instructions. However, if the guidelines are implemented step by step from the policy-making stage of the government, good results can be obtained. Because people may not be bothered at once. In this case, people have to go to work with them to make them aware. In this way, people will be able to understand the dangers of danger and it will be easier to prevent infection if they are involved.
It is very important to increase the testing system, contact tracing, quarantine and isolation from government place to area. This work needs to be taken forward by involving the community.
