Many a scientist feared a Third World War will wipe the entire human race off Mother Earth. The Covid-19 situation has shown a virus can bring more destruction to all parts of the world than a nuclear war or bomb. The entire scientist community were struggling to save the environment at all cost, and what did they get? A virus, which shook the entire human race and made it seem true similar attacks are also possible in the future. And at this juncture, only science and medicine have come forward to the rescue and not any stupid old faiths and practices.
Crisis Due To Corona Virus
First, a HONEST look at the Corona crisis that can go beyond your dreams.
In many parts of the globe, many families have lost their dear ones.
- Friends have lost their companions.
- Offices have lost their best workers.
- Some people are sick and on the way to the mortuary.
- Persons, who have to help in these times, have responded to the call, at the cost of their own lives such as medical professionals which includes the likes of nurses, doctors and other staff.
- Unemployment has reached a high peak in some countries.
- Many professionals have lost their jobs and some entrepreneurs have closed down their business.
In short, the Corona Outbreak has become a global tragedy that is difficult to put in words.
True, as part of the human community, the Covid-19 virus has caught you off-guard, but it also has given us a worthy chance to unite the entire countries. You, as a human have been given a rare opportunity to build a new society that can be prepared for future epidemics.
What Have We Learned From This Pandemic?
The entire human global community has been forced to participate in a test paper they never even thought in their wildest dreams. They have never studied the subject content – Corona Virus, preventing its outbreak, treatment of the sick, social distancing and economic lockdown. The rules differ for every country as the circumstances are so confusing.
There are many persons and communities around the world who are in lockdown phase or safe homes. Yes, it is boring not to move out of homes, and in this situation, it is wise to practise restraint.
When the World Trade Center got destroyed, every country wanted to suppress terrorism. Now, every country wants to eliminate Covid-19 from all parts of the world.
Some countries are in a complete shut-down phase. Also, countries and Governments which have a strong local presence in the form of community centers have easily come out of the Corona crisis. It is only where the local population does not cater to community circles and have to depend on outside vendors for their food have been hit the worst.
How Has Medical Science Helped In This Situation?
You should not forget the fact that more than 50 doctors in Italy have succumbed due to Covid- 19. A medical professional is doing his/her job by treating Covid-19 patients, but constant exposure may lead them to get infected. The Governments of respective affected countries should take every step in the book to ensure the medical professionals are given the best supplies and suitable resources to take care of themselves.
The entire medical fraternity is facing a shortage of medical equipment – right from medical masks to hospital beds. Very soon, a shortage of skilled medical professionals may arise if the same situation continues. It is up to you, the general public to stop the outspread of this virus. You need to follow the instructions as specified by your Government.
How Can You Help In This Situation?
Just pray to the SUPREME POWER, that the countries affected do not suffer from any other natural calamity – such as floods, famine or cyclones. At the same time, let us sincerely hope that the number of fatalities due to the virus should not experience a steep climb.
Why Should You Read This Article?
There may be many among you, who will feel a little awkward about reading this article in this dire situation when some countries are facing severe problems. Some may, even consider, this article has been published at this uncertain, unusual time as it talks about being positive at all times. But, please note, as mentioned in the very first paragraph of this article, staying positive is the best way to become successful in this time of crisis brought about by the Corona Virus.
How To Fulfill Your Duty as a Human Being in Corona Crisis
1.Enjoy The Little Moments
Are you a nuclear family? There were the days you worked for your family against all odds. Your wife stayed at home and cooked the best recipes. Your children understood the pain their parents went through and got good grades at colleges & schools.
The weekends were merely a source to get your tired bodies and mind rest for the next weekdays. In this lockdown, you can spend sufficient time with your family elders, spouse and kids. Take time to view the morning sunrise from your balcony, enjoy the morning coffee, give the brain cell the rest it needed all these years. Now, after the crisis, you can achieve more because your mind, brain and the entire body has savoured the calm it so desperately needed all these years.
2. Call Your Friends/Relatives
True, the Government may have levied a curfew and maintain social distance, but it has not told you to stay and get isolated from friends and relatives. Make your voice heard.
This is the time to patch-up with your friends and relatives. Take your mobile, call them and catch the events that have unfolded in their lives. Speaking with a blood relative can give the confidence which can ward off stress hormones by the million.
3. Identify The Root Cause of Your Anxiety
There are two ways to fight an unfortunate situation. Either fight or succumb. But running away from the problem can put undue stress on your brain.
To fear is human, but not to get active because of this negative expression is danger. Please do not pass your fears or anxiety to other by expression of anger or isolating yourself.
Instead, identify the root cause of your problem and talk with the family members. Has your Government installed Community Counsellors? Then, seek their assistance.
The general public (you) also has to take a firm stand in not pitting Governments against businesses, religious minorities and communities in all parts of the world. Together, you have to develop alliances as a human race to overcome the crisis and build a better future.
You should not hesitate to ask for assistance. Talk to your aunt about the tips to stockpile food items and preservation. It is not mandatory to follow the advice, but it is necessary to know about the alternative methods.
4. Blaming/Shaming Game
A look at the history pages, and you will know when food grains become scarce, tempers flare high in communities. The blame games then start and even the shaming of a minority community member. You need to hold on to your humanity skills the most to escape from these unwanted acts.
5. Following the Government Instructions
There are many people who take pleasure in being rebels and not following the Government instructions even at this epidemic stage. For example, if the Government says, “Wear mask and maintain social distance.” They will not do it” – not for the reason of being illiterate. It is impossible to judge these persons, if they are acting on impulse or out of distrust. The Government has imposed a curfew for the people not to roam on the streets. These guys will roam on the streets with bikes. If you are one among the mentioned, it is time to seek help or else you can become a victim of the disease.
6. See Always Goodness in Others
This is the most important and difficult factor in these trying times. It is easy to let down your guard of confidence, hope in this situation and see negativity shades in others. But please note, there are enough chances of hope and revival.
Rumours fly left, right, to the sky and bottom, and everywhere. Social media has made it easy for the trouble mongers to circulate videos targeting a specific community about spreading the virus, and indulging in acts of terrorism. True, there are some untoward incidents, but circulating hatred videos will infuse more negativity in society. The result, anger, resentment, losing trust in even your loved family members – all these can make your life miserable when you stay at home.
Please do not rely on unauthentic online information sources and right wing parties. This is the time when human mind becomes filled with negative emotions, and you will not be able to see the REALity. It becomes your sole responsibility to pay respect towards only reliable source of information channels to stop negativity from spreading at a fast pace.
For a moment, kindly think the positive. Has a doctor, nurse or any medical staff shirked their duties and stayed at home, expressing fear of the virus? Even in third countries such as India, they are going to the hospital for assistance. Even the law enforcement agencies are working day and night to regulate the situation and ensure the disease does not spread in more areas and countries.
Businessmen, Millionaires, actors and actresses have contributed millions to the Relief fund of respective countries. You may not have a million nor contribute to any fund, but the least you can do is to keep your family members happy and make them stay positive to handle any challenges for the future.
7. Stay Healthy
How long have you not exercised and made your body break into sweat? This is the time to indulge in yoga, running on tread mills and more.
Why Should You Stay Positive?
Seeing and speaking only positive videos and words can rekindle hope in any unfortunate situation. Medical science has proved persons with positive thoughts can quickly bounce back after an unfortunate incident. Your blood pressure and heart rate works normally and you can encounter any situation.
Persons with positive thoughts and confidence have been found to contain more immunity chemicals in their body. They can fight off any disease with ease. People, always on the point of bickering and spreading negativity can attract negative pathogens in quick time.
Positive emotions influence your judgement capacity, creativity to become successful in any situation.
You should never forget the fact, the worst struggle in this situation takes place not on the body, but the human mind. Men and women of middle age, working professionals, school kids, and college students may have adapted to a certain lifestyle during the weekdays and weekends. Now, staying together may inflate tempers and make situations in some homes worse. It is up to the family elders and you to make the home environment more comfortable. If this happens in every home, it will be just some time, before the entire human race can stand up against not only the Covid-19 virus, but also other pathogens in future.
