Containment zone policy change
This is a ridiculous move beyond all reasoning. Why have containment zones at all. Just keep everything open and if many more of us get it, bad luck deal with it.
It seems the danger and risk perception in govts view is reducing without really any basis. Makes zero sense. more
The more important thing would be for people to keep track of the condition of their servants (maids or Drivers, etc). They mus always wear masks and the same masks must be regularly washed. Our maid washes her hands with soap as provided for her, before she does any work in the home. Her forehead is also scanned daily for temperature. She washes her mask immediately on arrival and then wears a new mask provided for her by us. By the time her work is finished her own mask has dried and she removes the mask we have provided and washes it with soap and water and hangs it for drying. In the kitchen before she handles utensils, she again washes hre hands for 20 seconds with soap and water.
We make sure that she follows these rules without fail. While she is working in the house, both of us also wear our own masks and do not remove the masks until she has gone after work.
Is every one following similar rules and methods? If not then the chances of getting affected by Covid 19 is more probable. more
1. A symptomatic people don't spread the virus
2. The virus is quite weak when on transferred to a surface and chances of spreading from surface are low
There is lot of new learning on how the virus spread (definitely human to human spread is most likely scenario and can be avoided to a large extend by wearing mask, sanitizing hands etc). There are lot of controversies which are uncovering.
Another aspect, the mortality rate is quite low, official figure is around 3.3% but we all know that number of positive cases are much higher than reported, therefore mortality rate (you can't hide death numbers) should be around 0.1% or even less. Therefore take all precautions, keep senior citizens and infants indoors (as much possible) and dont panic. Government know very well what they are doing, and it is not different than other countries like USA. more
