It is difficult ignoring the present health state of the world. The global pandemic which took the world by storm in January, 2019 has become rather inevitable, with stressed medical practitioners all over the world working tirelessly to combat the deadly virus and families scared of losing their loved ones to it.
The solutions which seems rather far-fetched is however, simple. The only way to stop its spread is for humans to practise social distancing. This however, has proved to be hard as humans have an inherent sense of having a communal feeling. Humans have always existed in communities and societies and the concept of isolation, quarantine is what the world is trying to adjust to.
This post is not to instil fear but to advice people to follow whichever preventive measures the government of their individual country has prescribed. Try as much as possible to wash your hands, sanitise your hands and adhere to social distancing. Despite the fact that you love being around such person or group of people, try to have you and them in consideration and keep your distance. When shopping, use gloves to pick items and on getting home, wash the items with another glove on. When leaving the comfort of your home, always have the glove on.
Through communal effort in doing this, we are doing our best by helping medical practitioners to have less work hours and more time to spend with their families.
This period can also take a toll on people’s mental and emotional wellbeing. Try to check up on anyone you know who have their loved ones in the hospital undergoing treatment for the virus and call them to let them know that they are not alone. For those that are in panic, try to give them hope.
Eat healthy and stay indoors with your family. For international students who have their families and friends in their home countries or other countries, I want you to know that you are not alone. Keep strong and stay safe. Check out my youtube video embedded below on how you can stay safe.
Stay home and Stay safe.
