CONTINUATION OF LOCKDOWN & SAFETY OF LIFE ; RELAXATION OF NORMS & LIVELIHOOD OF MILLIONS :
CORONA VIRUS HAS COME TO STAY WITH US AND IT WILL NOT GO JUST BY CONTINUOUS LOCKDOWNS . Even in China there are fresh cases of Covid19 .We have to learn to live and fight with it till a Vaccine is found . Vacine is not far away . Such long duration of lack of activity will lead to lethargy with the work force , salary cut, no wages at all for contract workers , production coming to a stand still . Educational Institutions going without activity and many other negative impact that will reflect on us close to a decade .
The Health Authorities have done their bit , Have fairly sufficient Testing Kits ,Appropriate PPE’s for the Doctors , Nurses ,Heath workers and Sanitary staff .
Administrators have been doing their best , yet may require more assistance, co operation from the public . Their duty should be to Supervise strict adherence to Distancing , wearing Masks , not spitting in the public places by the anyone . Washing hands and face is every ones responsibility .
BUT ADMINISTRATION SHOULD REALIZE THAT TIME IS NOT RIPE YET TO OPEN UP LIQUOR SHOPS . GOVERNMENT SHOULDN’T AIM FOR SHORT TERM REVENUE . PLAN FOR STABLE ECONOMY WELL AHEAD . No excuse that the Tipplers are suffering from Withdrawal Syndrome , to alliviate them liquor made available . With 21 days off liquor Craving goes off the system . Now it is double 21 days . They can be stable for ever. (Probably that worries the Government for future Liquor Revenue)
ALL REQUIRED FROM US IS ,
* COMMUNITY RESPONSIBILITY ,
* PARTICIPATION IN PUBLIC HEALTH EFFORTS , AND
* MOST IMPORTANTLY COMMON SENSE APPROACH - opine the Health experts.
LIFE IS A GIFT OF GOD HOW WE UTILIZE IT IS OUR GIFT TO GOD – more
and sweden ,taiwan did without even enforcing a lock down.These may be small examples, but it shows what works.
I still think that there is a lot more to be done by the Govt. in terms of support
to medical facilities /preventive kits and above all for Testing. Testing must be done and that to it must be made free, especially for the lower middle class and poor and the senior citizens, who are struggling to make two ends meet during these hard times with their meagre sources of revenue. In the smaller mufassil towns and villages, there is hardly a decent facility, and as some have reported, even experienced medical staff to carry out testing /treatment. These cud become the new Hot spots, when migrant labour get back.
Why is the Govt dragging its feet on these basic essential and humanitarian issues such as free or subsidised testing.
Effective Vaccines are perhaps a long way in coming, as is OPD treatments and a standardised anti Corona medication protocol- like we have TAMIFLU for the Swine Flu.
Yes arguably and logically, lock down has to end sooner than later, but then the system must be prepared to shoulder the burden, or there will be a heavy price price to pay by virtue of overloads of patients, shuold that happen. There have been reports ,whether true or false from so called medical whistleblowers, alleging that how even in some western and more developed countries,there have been several fatalities, that can be attributed to sheer medical mishandling and neglect, as a direct result of pressure of workload caused by massive influx of patients. In india we have many experts and wonderful professionals, and examples/lessons from other countries to learn from, and any easing of lock down should be done with extreme caution and careful planning ensuring strict implementation- not the way the 4 hour notice was given for lockdown( no doubt and essential step), without much thought to he pros and cons, which has led to the unending miseries and catastrophic human suffering of the migrant workers.
Take care and stay safe more
Where a small act of govt immediately screened in TV and govt enjoys with lot of claps and easily covers the eye shame as the entire world sees the good sanitizing process are going on by state govt .only 20% population enjoys it . But the majority where 80 percent population are residing in outer Mudrika i.e colonies and cluster no sanitization is there nor it has been shown in TV .
You know some dog urinate type sanitization are being done on some close gates casually . No roads are made in this area still are broken from July 16. Therefore no sanitization are being done/ facilitated in these colonies nor the state govt willing to do rather than advertise with full bull shit in TV channel . Even no MLA or MP,s are found in Road who can give some type of hope and can check the administrative activities of local govt. This is the true and inaction by state govt.
It can be managed effectively if govt starts sanitation everywhere with good wishes and try to change the scenario . Now Infection has been coming out with Covit, tomorrow Dengue will come , malaria, Swine flew are thereafter or may new . Yes Delhi can be changed and stop infection if the govt wants to curve it . It is national capital but resident are treated with A+++ and B or C , D
Where is such proactive action ? more
1. widely available cheap/accurate and easy to use testing [work/home] kits to check people's status for all corona viruses to use for suspect cases.
2. effective multi-modality treatment options, education about personal hygiene, dangers of co-morbity.
3. hefty fines for spitting in public,
4. public awareness campaigns on social responsibility [do not go to work / school / public places when you or your children have the flu.
We MUST end this process of lockdown now!
The economic / emotional / social / communal stress and dangers far outweigh the low infection / death rates of a virus that is no more lethal than the so-called seasonal flu.
This virus will simply become another flu that we as mankind have to face and unrelenting lockdown will never solve the problem. more
