We would say, don’t. In scientific terms, it is different from various other flus and viruses but we are taking this virus very strategically. When compared with previous virus attacks like Spanish Flu that infected 500 million people and killed 5 million, we have together kept the situation controlled. Imagine the numbers then and now! Moreover, the whole world is fighting together against coronavirus which was probably never seen in history before. So you shall rather hope for better outcomes in the coming future.

Lockdown will soon be over but it is true that a sense of contracting the virus may linger in our minds. The best way is to maintain social distance, talking to people 2 meter apart, sanitize everything you get in your home, follow self-care habits regularly and prefer working from home for about a few more months. Your alertness is the only weapon to keep you ahead even after lockdown is over.
Q5. How far social distance is going to help us?
As Medical Science is rigorously trying to find cure and vaccines for the coronavirus, it is only social distancing that can help us. Thankfully, we are not facing a war-like situation and we can definitely cope with fear of viruses only with our efforts to stay distant from each other in the coming few months.

Q10. What should I do at home alone and when I have no one to talk to?
It is understandable if you are home alone and not able to be your loved ones. Situations come when you have no one to talk to and you cannot even think of going anywhere.

Many of your questions are going to be answered really soon. We would also like to tell you that some excerpts have been taken from Sadhguru’s video and you can choose to listen to him as well. The most positive thing about it is to know that viruses are part of the living cycle of nature. They have been living even before mankind and stayed within every organism of the world. But since 1970, 60% of the vertebrate populations have gone extinct and now the virus has made its space within humans. It’s alright if it has made space in between us, fighting and stopping it becomes our strong responsibility. Isn’t thinking great?
