Corona Virus - Invisible trap
Mahadeep Singh Jamwal3/30/2020 10:57:47 PM
What began with a spattering of secretive illnesses, now death trap known as Covid-19, in a vast central China city cruised the world, from obscurity to international headlines? It has set off un-heard, stock market upheaval and dangerous conspiracy theories. The Corona Virus, believed to be a 'Zoonotic Disease' has engaged the entire space and fear has trampled individuals, families and larger systems. Respiratory symptoms are a great cause for concern for the elderly, as well as people with asthma or lung disease or a history of pneumonia, heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes, a compromised immune system due to illness or a drug therapy, or a person has recently been treated for cancer. Standard recommendations to reduce exposure to and transmission of a range of illnesses include maintaining basic hand and respiratory hygiene, and safe food practices and avoiding close contact, when possible, with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing. .It's spreading fast; there is currently no vaccine or preventative treatment for it. Under these circumstances, it is understandable that people would be frightened. It is easy to succumb to fear in the face of uncertainty and unpredictability, and in the situation, we have evolved to react poorly. The fantasies flourish in the absence of information and too much information also leads to escalation of aggressive stress. And this is what happening and being poured by the TV channels 24X7. The non-stop media cycle surrounding the outbreak, puts people in a hyper-vigilant state. The People notice more, and hear more, and read more, and interpret that in a threatening way. The information from across the nations regarding the morbidity and the mortality rate are scaring the populace. In addition to the awareness required for the common man about present Pandemic, it is also necessary to filter away the information that creates panic. It's our responsibility to pay attention to our own most valued sources of information and to follow up-to-date instructions from the Government. There is time to change the course of Covid-19, we can stay centered, refrain from succumbing to our worst fears and be better prepared for whatever our collective future holds. Everyone is confronting challenges we may not fully recognize or understand. When the normal life is narrowing down, the important component of putting the pandemic in perspective is balancing what we should and should not do. While we can't fully eradicate our fears, we can work to understand how the deadly virus operates and how it affects us, for our better and for worse. While we can't drive fear off with a big stick, we can learn ways to calm ourselves down and find a little peace of mind.
What required more at the government level is that preparedness is good, no deprivation from frontline healthcare, medical supplies, like sanitizers, gloves, respirators, and face shields that have fallen short. As positivity, G20 leaders on Thursday said they were committed to presenting a united front against the coronavirus pandemic, calling it their "absolute priority" to tackle its health, social and economic impacts. Terrible things happen, but it is still possible to move forward with care and prayer. We either engages in compulsive instructions of social distancing, and mandates to shelter in place require us to stay in our homes, maintaining social distance, hand washing, using masks, and follow the quarantine guide lines or we do the opposite and act like the germ theory doesn't apply to us and prove to be a carrier for the virus and behave like ticking bomb moving in the society like those who have escaped into the darkness found positive for corona. Many of us probably will contract the new coronavirus at some point. The impact just one person can have on spreading the virus or tamping it down is exponential.
We should Plan for daily nutrition. For optimal health, we need a mix of protein, vegetables, fruits, whole grains and some fats.
The most disturbing part of many is to keep them confined to their home. However, the fact is that we can't always be around people. Being alone can also be good for our mental health because it can allow us to be more relaxed. There are times when we need to sit all by our self and reflect on our life or just enjoy our alone time. Being alone does not necessarily mean that we should be lonely. Being alone gives us the chance to discover our self. It allows us to learn things about our self and know our self better. Engage in healthy practices and try to sustain regular routines that bring comfort and stability. Therapy, conversation, exercise, yoga, meditation and religious and spiritual practices are good starting points. We should also consider the healing impacts of loneliness by engaging our self in making art, singing, journaling and being useful to others. But we cannot breathe life into someone refusing to inhale.
