Coronavirus: Your Role-Models Are Self-Distancing. Why Cant You?

Last Update on: March 29th, 2020 at 02:23 pm

While the ‘Janta Curfew’ was a big success, there were few who had nearly turned it into a catastrophe. PM Narendra Modi’s brilliant initiative to combat the coronavirus pandemic was marred by a number of people who flocked out clanging utensils, forgetting the actual purpose of the move, and leaving the country in disarray.

To fight against the novel coronavirus pandemic, social distancing or self isolating is the need of the hour, but few citizens in India hardly seem to understand. Fortunately, India have not transmitted to stage-3 of COVID-19. But if the citizens continue to take the 21-day lockdown for granted, India might well face an unprecedented and a highly dangerous situation.

The Stage 3, which refers to community transmission, would mean the source of transmission cannot be traced for a majority of cases. The confirmed cases in this stage neither have travel history to affected countries nor have they come in contact with any confirmed patients. 

According to a survey CVoter and Gallup – Indians are amid the ‘least worried’ people in the world – as far as the COVID-19 outbreak is concerned. It is high time the citizens take inspiration from their role models, if the fact that, they are putting the entire country and millions of people in trouble is not enough!

When staying at home, you can put your hidden talents to use. It might also help you bond with your siblings, a bit more. Moreover, there are easily accessible applications available, these days. So why not take inspiration from the Irfan Pathan-Yusuf Pathan video and make a few videos of yourself?

When you are in company of your loved ones, nothing feels better than getting pampered by them. Team India captain Virat Kohli got a new haircut from his wife and bollywood actor Anushka Sharma. At a state of complete lockdown, why don’t you try out a new haircut at home, while your loved ones can volunteer?

Former New Zealand coach and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team director Mike Hesson is making the most of his time in India. While watching a few videos and analysing the game better, he is also learning Kannada and Hindi. If he adds these languages to his pack of skills, it would only help him interact better with the locals. Taking a cue from his effort, even we can stay home and learn a few new languages.

Additionally there are plenty more things to do — chat with your friends on a video call, learn to cook, watch a series, or a documentary, or read a book to brush up your knowledge.

But with the toll of positive cases in India, reaching nearly 1000, it is important to take the lockdown seriously and stay at home.
