This year, 2020, are going to be remembered, unfortunately, because the year of this horrific pandemic, which has seen over 50 million worldwide cases, and over 10 million cases within the us , also as a few million deaths, throughout the planet , and nearly 250, 000 fatalities, during this nation. Some articulate, a spread of inane concepts, and theories, including, herd immunity, pandemic – fatigue, or, it’ll all get away , by itself, etc, but, if we wish, to deal with this virus, and start to scale back the general public health risks, we’d like to require personal responsibility, to guard our health, and well – being, during an epidemic . thereupon in mind, this text will plan to , briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, 5 basic steps, to realize this.
Wear a mask: Why has wearing a mask, become a political discussion? Nearly, every public health expert, states, if, everyone, simply wore a mask, whenever social spacing, was challenging, and, especially, indoors (in buildings, restaurants, etc), the speed of infection, would probably be reduced, about 95%. Isn’t this, not only, logical, from a private perspective, also as one’s social responsibility? Some parts of the state , have witnessed, more cooperation, regarding this, than others, and, generally , these regions/ areas, have had lower infection rates.
Social distancing/ spacing: Studies indicate, social distancing, significantly, reduces spread of the infection. for instance , whenever , President Trump, held one among his rallies, where most of the attendees, neither, were socially spaced, and/ or, wearing masks, we witnessed a selection of the infections/ cases! Stay, at least, 6 feet apart, but, many studies indicate, this air – borne, virus, under certain circumstances, can travel, even further.
Avoid crowds/ be wary of eating indoors: Although, most folks , would love, to see, some return to normalcy, and normal activities/ conditions/ life, unfortunately, this virus, spreads indoors, at an incredible rate, and, unless the establishment, carefully, pays attention, to all or any necessary precautions, in terms of cleaning, sanitation, wearing masks, and upgrading their air filtration systems, etc, one exposes himself to undesirable ramifications. Also, stand back from crowded areas, situations, etc, and take care . Remain vigilant, and healthy!
Don’t disappointed your guard: do not be foolish/ stupid/ selfish, by permitting, so – called, Pandemic Fatigue, lead you, to disappointed , your guard! Use sense , and realize, you do not want to become a statistic!
Use precautions: Wash your hands, often, use hand sanitizer, wear a mask, avoid crowds, limit certain activities, and take precautions, to safely, minimize your risks!
This virus isn’t only real, and still, here, but, we are witnessing, a rise within the number of cases, and fatalities! Assume the social responsibility, be smart and vigilant, and stay safe, and healthy!
