Coronavirus can’t be controlled but it can be managed and that too dynamically. We truly appreciate the dynamic actions that Indian Government has taken starting from screening of flyers coming in from foreign countries to continuing the lockdown till 3rd May.
Taking lessons from the mistakes of the countries like China, Italy, Iran, etc, our Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi announced an early lockdown which not only confined the cases of Coronavirus but also induced knowledge among masses about the spread of Coronavirus in India.
Some wonderful ideas, among many others, that already have been followed by the Government to curb the virus are enumerated hereunder:
The manageable stage that India is currently in would have been unimaginable without this timely, holistic and integrated approach.
Though the Government has come up with several innovative and unique ideas of prevention and is coming up with new ideas of prevention from Coronavirus with every passing day but we cannot deny the fact that the spread of Coronavirus is still increasing.
This article is intended to provide Government with a few more solutions and quick steps that should be taken to tackle the emerging problems arising in its battle against Corona.
Note: Nether I can nor I am recommending anybody Hydroxy Choloquine medicine for Corona or any other disease.
There are some people who get to know about being infected through the symptoms but they hide themselves knowingly trying to spread the virus. For such kind of people, I think Pharmacy stores are an important link. Trace the people through medicines they buy. Chemists should not be allowed to sell the medicines relating to the symptoms of Coronavirus i.e. medicines related to fever, cough, cold, flu etc without the recommendation of Doctors. Alternatively, chemists should not be permitted the sale of medicines related to cold, cough, fever etc without a national ID. People can be traced through that data. ‘The area of tracing the infected persons demands seriousness of the government the most’.
Moreover, as there is scarcity of testing kits, so testing kits should be used wisely.
So, post lockdown, China’s footsteps can be followed:
A person’s body temperature is checked at least 3-4 times in a day in China at different places so that the person infected with virus can be caught at first stage of Corona itself, if possible. Eg: different policemen have been posted at different roads to check the temperature of each and every person passing through that road. Other roads have been shut to ensure that no one passes through any other way without being scanned. Thereafter, he is scanned at office before entering and exiting the office premises and then again while going back to home.
Government is therefore suggested to check the temperature of persons at every step and besides that new thermometers or some kind of thermal machines which can easily measure the temperature of human beings in seconds should be made compulsory at all public places like malls, metro stations, railway stations, bus stand etc. and simultaneously for all the factories, industries, companies etc so that they measure the temperature of each and every employee before entering and exiting the office premises so that the person infected with virus can be caught at the first stage of Corona itself, if possible.
1. Kerala was one of the first state in India which announced an informal lockdown much before Modiji announced it.
2. Kerala’s Ministers and officers showed extreme seriousness and quickness in finding out the infected, isolating and surveillance. They spent hours in planning and finding out the movements of the patients and finally reached those places and took quick actions.
3. They made teams in no time by inviting the volunteers.
4. Some responsible cops visited faraway places in Kerala to ensure that relief supplies reached at the farthest corner of Kerala (unlike Bengal where food supplies were not adequately provided to the poor and hundreds of poor people had to come up on roads for the want of food.)
Besides that, strict laws and orders should be made for those who are misbehaving with Corona Warriors. The rules should be so strict that other people should think a million times before committing such blunders.
The State Governments who have not taken any steps in this regard are requested to allow the migrant labourers to get back to their home as quick as possible because ultimately you will have to allow them one day or the other. Likewise, Government will have to allow the family members to get back to their families one day or the other.
So, it is suggested that Government should allow these people to get back to their homes but only after duly checking them and keeping them in quarantine, if required.
People may or may not die of Corona but if they died due to lack of food or sanitation problems or mental issues of being separated from their families or due to travelling hundreds of kilometres again, then that would be considered as a failure in combatting corona. Therefore, the Government should not make delay in this regard.
So, these were a few ideas to make our battle strong against Corona. There are various other emerging problems which the Government has already taken care of like regular spraying of disinfectant in medium and highly congested area and allowed the farmers to cultivate their crops keeping in mind the future demand of food and also issued Ministry of Ayush’s guidelines to increase the immunity of people of India and has taken many other countless steps like the above.
If you like this article, I request you to share it with Government authorities more and more so that such ideas come to the notice of Government and steps are taken in this regard. I hope and pray that India and the world would win in its battle against Corona as soon as possible. JAI HIND.
