Enjoy Quarantine…

Do you remember the days when we had summer break during our school time. How we spent that time when we were not allowed to move outside of the house as it was too hot outside. Yeah I am not denying the fact that we all went to our relatives’ house to stay during that time but it was just for a few days and for the rest of the time we spent at home by all the things which makes us happy. So this is the time now, do whatever which makes you felt happy.

This Quarantine period can be enjoyed by starting off with some of your desirable things. Think of those things which you used to procrastinate saying that you will do that when you will be free. See, this is the first time you were talking about then. I don’t think that we will ever get this free time in our lifetime back again. So why not make full use of it?

Kate Mannle, who earlier this year traveled through South Korea on her way back from a trip to Myanmar, quarantined herself at home in Seattle when she came down with a fever and a cough.

 

You can enjoy this Quarantine period by gong all these things:

  • Spend time with your family, talk to them about the things which excites you, share your funny incidents with the and also listen theirs.
  • Play games with your family like Cards, Carrom, Antakshri and so more! If you are not with your family, you can play some online games also. You can play online Ludo with your friends, family or colleagues.
  • You can watch some online stuff like series on Netflix, Amazon prime etc. If you don’t have subscription for these, YouTube is also a nice idea. You can also watch movies.
  • Call your loved ones, talk to them. Open your heart in front of those who genuinely care. This can help your soul to feel lighten and eventually makes you happy and calm.
  • Try to read books! Yes, you should read books on the topics you love. If your don’t have books, don’t step your of your house to buy some. You can just download some apps which let you read wide range of books.
  • Practice the things which make you feel good. In my case it is dance. Think what you like and do it.
  • Make yourself stronger and more confident. Stay away from the people who make you feel stupid when do the things you like
  • You can (Only if you want to) join some online classes; upgrade your skills and knowledge.
  • You can do some of your household chores like helping your mom in cooking or cleaning up and sanitizing your house and your equipments.
  • Meditation is one of the best things you can do right now to relieve stress and improve your well being.
  • Just because you have to stay indoors doesn’t mean you can’t get started on your spring gardening. Bring the outdoors in by sprouting seeds or planting a container garden. Bonus: you can use your fresh herbs in your amazing healthy dishes you are learning to cook.
  • Want to know how to say, “Quarantine stink” in five other language? Now is a great time to learn or practice a new language.
  • Whipping up a produce-packed smoothie or a green juice may be too much work on a normal morning but what is normal anymore? These days it’s more important than ever to support your immune system and your waistline with plenty of fresh or frozen fruits and veggies.

Let’s use this time in an effective and efficient way. Use this time in building some good habits and take up some new habits which will help you professionally and personally.

I suggest to you not to waste this time. Do whatever you always wished to. Don’t spend this time in overt thinking.

This time will never return. Think Wisely.

Most importantly, keep washing your hands again and again, cover your mouth while sneezing, don’t step out of your home, Help the needy as far as possible, support the police and trust them. Also trust the doctors and scientists; they will soon come up with cure to this virus. Till then, stay at your home and be happy, don’t take stress.

Support the steps take to save you!

 

How to enjoy quarantine?

Never did we ever imagine 2020 going this way. With Global pandemic breathing down our necks, self-isolation/quarantine is the best hope for mankind. An invisible enemy that is beyond our control is the worst dilemma we could be in. COVID-19 has forced us to stay at home which hasn’t been as easy as we all expected. Quarantine being a sudden and a drastic change of lifestyle for people has been moiling. People have been facing hardships mentally and physically with such an unexpected hold on the world. For all the disconsolate folks out there, worrying and stressing yourself out will only make things worse. There are so many ways you can entertain yourself, work on yourself, cheer yourself up, and keep yourself distracted. So here are some of the best suggestions for you to try:

Binge-watching

Let’s be honest, your list is probably filled up with God knows how many shows you’ve promised your friends to watch. It’s probably the best and the ONLY TIME you will get (cannot emphasize this enough) to actually fulfill your promises being a loyal friend that you are. With so many online sites providing you award-winning shows, you can use up your free time and maybe provide genuine and honest-to-God reviews to make binge-watching worthwhile for other viewers. Help out your lads will ya!

Polishing your long lost hobbies and skilles

Remember the time when you used to have a hobby? A skill you were proud to be good at and genuinely enjoyed? Well, this is the best time for you to go back to your old ways of enjoyment. Take out that musical instrument you used to play, those paints you once loved to colour with, or that book whose smell you used to cherish the most. Go ahead, brush off the dust on your memory trunk and go crazy!

Learn a new language

Want to say ‘wash your hands’ in different languages? There is still time. With so much time to spare, you can work on becoming a multilingual expert in your group. There are literally YouTube videos, journals, and online language learning applications and websites that you can use to learn French, German, and Korean, etc.

For all the job seekers out there reading this, let me assure you, having a foreign language in your resume is going to have a great impact on your career. Knowing how to speak a foreign language is the best way to impress your interviewer.

Note: In case you get demotivated mid-way of your learning, type-in that language in  your resume to encourage you to finish your lessons.

How about adopting a healthy lifestyle?

Being a proud Indian that you are, you wouldn’t be unfamiliar about the long-lasting and legitimate effects of Yoga. The gym isn’t the only place where you can work-out. Exercising at home is possible too. You can do yoga in your garden or balcony, do push-ups in your drawing room, maybe even do some heavy lifting with things in your house you have been unable to clean for a while (a good excuse to clean under your fridge, microwave and sofa that have just been collecting dust bunnies for a while now).

A simple meditation, even a 5-minute self-time, and some silence are enough to leave you with a calmer and more positive mental state during these uneasy times. Many people have been suffering from depression and stress due to quarantine which is why yoga is among the best options to repose. Just pick a placid location and feel serenity around you.

Add skincare to your list

With so much pollution acne, zits and blackheads have become our companions. Due to busy routines, skincare hasn’t crossed people’s minds for a while. Now that you are sitting at home, you can work on that gorgeous skin of yours underneath all of the pollution deposited on your face for years. Grab that face mask you once bought pitying your skin condition but never actually got the time to try them out. In case you are out of stock on your skincare products, natural ingredients are nothing more than a lifesaver for you. So much can help you out – Aloe vera, turmeric, honey, carrots, and cucumbers, you name it. Read articles, call your dermatologist, or watch your favourite beauty gurus videos. It’s time to say goodbye to your acne.

Volunteer work, charity and donation

Last but not the least, the best feeling in the world is to help someone out. You can do volunteer work where you do not have to go outside. There are numerous NGOs looking for more helping hands. You can write articles and make posters regarding sanitation, washing-hands, Preventing isolation depression and so much more. These articles will be an informant for those who are unaware or need help. You can also make donations to many unfortunate souls out there without food and water. Various donation groups (including government) have allowed people to make online donations. Help a friend out, take care of an elderly who is unable to take care of themselves, pay your workers salaries if possible, and donate masks if you are able to spare extras. True joy comes from bringing joy to other people’s lives.

Not just this, there is so much more you can do, from singing to cooking your favourite meals from scratch, dancing on your favourite tunes to cleaning out all the junk from your house. As far as your imagination goes you will get through this. As long as you are your positive self, there is no stopping you. There is always light at the end of the tunnel. These days of adversity and agony will go away soon. Nothing is permanent though how you face it is all up to you. Times are tough, but we are stronger together because we are in this together.

 

Show sympathy not only for Corona patients but also for Corona fighter

Anchal Agarwal

S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner, Jaipur

 

All of we know that our India is suffering from deadly pandemic known as coronavirus.

During this situation in our country many peoples are giving there contribution which cannot be counted or paid but even in this situation there are some people who have not a little sympathy in their heart not only for Corona patients but also for Corona fighter.

We can see everywhere that if in our surrounding any person found suffering from Corona he or she is treated differently and ignored, neglected this is not only a shameful for that person but also for those who are supporting him.

First that person is suffering from an deadly disease and second more worse he is suffering from people bad behavior, so this is our moral responsibility to improve our social system, develop moral values ,educate people, develop sympathy in them and motivate them to come forward to help poor people and  corona patients and participate in the chain of humanity……….

Effect of people’s behaviour on corona patients

When somebody is behaved differently by someone who close to him is equal to die rather than survive because once behavior can give someone life and also snatch someone’s life. Negative behaviour towards Corona patient developed a sense of shame in them they develop a narrow mind set and feeling of inferiority.

So it is our moral responsibility to follow following measures that motivate not only us but also others to develop a sympathy towards corona patient and encourage them to fight Corona not with people.

Creative and moral ideas to initiate a step towards humanity

  1. First of all we should educate all the citizens of our country by various awareness programs like advertisement, poster, videos ,images and with the help of social media that we should behaviour nice with every person by placing our self on that’s person place. Also tell them that what are the negative effect on a patient or a person who is behaved differently by them through telling them that it develops a feeling of i stress, depression in them.
  2. We should encourage people to participate in the programs which are organized for helping the poor patients Corona fighters etc.
  3. We should award those people who initiate any effort in regard of Corona fighters and Corona patient.
  4. By teaching moral values, ethical values and developing sensitivity in peoples we can stop this behaviour.
  5. At last but not least we should start it with our self, our surrounding, we should see in our surrounding that in our surrounding someone is behaved differently if it is then we stop it Most important we should never behave differently with anyone and encourage others to behave positively with others to Fight Corona not with People and educate them to stay home safe.

Stay Home Stay Safe

COVID-19 An opportunity to visualise and concern health issues

Covid-19 is a member of corona virus family. Recently whole word is facing its consequences which has been produced willingly or unwillingly. To protect citizens worldwide every country has enforced lockdown. In this situation many of negative portions of society has starting giving their feedback i.e., why lockdown, for whom it is, we will’nt follow it any cost…..etc.etc and many other excuses. Left over that narrow minded people.

Just make a look at yourself. What is our responsibility not only toward nation but towards us, our family, our neighbors. A single STAY AT HOME

So we should stay at home, it is the most common sentence which is used by everyone but let us make a view towards it.In our mind it must arise that if we stay home what we should do that make us not only entertain but also keep us fit. So today I am sharing some little steps that will not only make your boring quarantine  creative but also make you healthy and fit by improving your immune system.

Ways to improve immune system

First of all we must promise our self  that all these steps we will follow without any excuses.

  • 1.As we all know that allopathic medicines show their effect immediately but all we know or not that what are its side effect so we cannot suggest anyone to take allopathic medicines before disease occurs  but their solution that is Ayurveda medicine all we know that it is the oldest medical record of India . In Ayurveda there are many examples which prove Ayurveda a boon to India. During the situation of covid-19 we should follow some Ayurveda rules take some Ayurvedic medicine this not only improve our immune system but also improve our Lifestyle likewise. We should take some medicine Sudarshan ghanvati, Giloy Ras,Amrita rist, Pancharishta, also some other herbal medicine. These all medicines don’t cause any side effect but boost our immunity, improve our heart system, cures chronic diseases and also in builds antibodies.
  • 2. Then by taking medicine we can improve our immune systems but if we want to make its responses earlier or provide it company which enhance its effect then I will prefer yoga.
  • There are many yogas like kapalbhathi, anulom vilom, audho mukh savasan, trikonasan, pranayama and many more.
  • 3.It is said one who eat well live well. So we should eat as much as nutritious food we can along with our some lovingly food.
  • There are many fruits like pomegranate, anole, grapes and our summer love-mango all these fruits including dry fruits like almond, apricot, cashewnut etc. all these supplies essential vitamins to our body which boost our immune system.
  • 4.We should stay positive as possible in every condition because positivity not only improves our thinking but also boost our immune system by improving nerve impulses.
  • 5.We should never take stress because stress is a key to lock of poor immunity. We should never worry on corona and any other related aspects.

So all these 5 steps not only improve our immune system but also create a positive surrounding.

So we should follow all these steps willingly and make other person to follow all these. This is only cost effective and feasible method which can make our BORING QUARANTINE interesting.

So STAY HOME STAY SAFE and fight corona not corona patients.

Protecting poor during lockdown

Ananya Singh

Integral University, Lucknow

 

Anita, a laborer in an interview said that all of a sudden her job is gone , her husband has fever, cough and is very ill. She has no food to eat.

Prabhulal Kumar, a daily wage laborer said that being a daily wage laborer he now has money for survival. He further said that instead of dying in a city, he would like to go back to his village and die with dignity.

COVID-19, a pandemic that has shaken whole world from its devastating effects. A disease which is not taking lives of infected people but also of those who has no money. A month of lockdown, a month of pain , hunger and death of not body but people’s soul. A month of 1.3 billions locking themselves at their homes, just to save lives. But are they actually saving? Government put this all restrictions on people to stop infection of corona virus, which is a great step but did they ever thought about people like Anita and Prabhu Lal Kumar?

Problems faced by poor

India has a population of approximately 1.3 billion in which casual workers forms 90% of India’s workforce. And suddenly due to this lockdown they have run out of their works, jobs and lives. India’s lockdown has caused further struggle for more than 300 million of those who are below poverty line to die in hunger.

Workers are suffering a great loss because of lockdown. One man with his family was picking out edibles from trash areas just to feed themselves so they at least live for more days. A depressing picture but as we all say reality hits hard in guts. Do you think they deserve all this ? I think no. Every time I see such disturbing pictures one question arises in my mind “why they are suffering?”. And the answer is much cruel. Just because they don’t have ” money” and the only source to earn it has been dismissed , they are bound to suffer.

Coronavirus lockdown: Narendra Modi has cut India’s poor adrift

Government restricted the movement of public transport, which added to the list of problems of poor. They have been locked in a place with no food , no money and no shelters. To overcome this , these workers started moving to their respective villages and hometown by bicycles and some of them who don’t have, just used their foot to walk back to their places. Many died in this attempt too. The phrase ” no pain , no gain” is actually never suited to these people because they only had ” no pain” part but far from any gain.

These problems are not psychological disturbing but it is effecting the economy too. Sudden lockdown and scrapping off their jobs had a huge downfall in Indian economy. Problems are more as compared to their solutions but they can be limited with small small steps. There are also concerns that India’s food supply chain will be hindered by the lockdown.

One of the major problem that arose during this lockdown is landlords evicting workers from their residences. For this the UP Police Official KP Singh gave a statement saying -” People should not ask daily wage workers to vacate their homes but instead should make awareness about COVID-19″. A very useful statement for the workers to save their family to come on footpath.

How to protect them during lockdown?

Well the answer is very important because they are the person who made us live our life’s efficiently. Whether it is a vegetable vendor or a milkman they all worked hard for us .

India’s government introduced US $22.5 billion package to help poor households. Government also started distributing various food packages for the needy people.

Many officials like UP, Haryana, Punjab, etc. police officials started distribution of free food packages and meals across the country , thousands line up at shelters for free meals. Various NGO’s have also started giving shelters with basic needs to the people.

As a citizen of India, we also have some responsibility towards our these friends who helped with all their handworks to increase our lifestyles. We can also contribute our little help for these people. For example, a PM care fund has been made to contribute money according to our wish for helping the country in order to fight corona.

During this pandemic period, many legal and human rights of these poor people are being violated. We can aware them of their rights and let them take initiative of anything wrong goes around them .

Close schools and vague buildings can be converted into shelter homes for these people. Medical kits like masks, sanitizers and gloves can be provided to them for their safety. Awareness regarding social distancing through loudspeaker could be explained to them in order so that they could save themselves from infection.

Why is it important to protect them?

Do you ever thought if after lockdown and this pandemic ends and you go outside to buy vegetables and foods and you can’t find it?

Or You want your own home to be construed but can’t find workers?

Or you want to travel somewhere but the drivers are no more available because they have starved to death?

Well now I think it’s very clear how much importance these people are in our life’s. If we put aside our needs , and see it as economical thing then they are the backbones of our economic system. 90% of India’s workforce is due to these casual workers. Our whole life revolves around them. And as our constitution propose the idea of equality, we can say that it is their right to live with dignity and it is duty of our government to think in their benefit before proposing any idea on the footline.

Harsh Mander , a renowned columnists and social activist said that, ” They ( poor workers) keep saying we will die of this virus later , we will die of hunger first. I think this is certainly not just the biggest lockdown in the world, it is also the most cruel. Those who have the resources to survive have everything. And for others, You’ve ( the government ) pushed them into a lonely frightening place of uncertainty.”

Practically the cruel truth, we are still met with all our necessity, the biggest problem that we face are ” that we can get our bourbon or Oreo biscuit packet”, and irony is we never realised that their are people outside who even don’t have one time proper meal or better say are not even able to get proper piece of bread.

Mina Jakhwadiya, a street merchant said that, ” The government must look after us. They called for this lockdown and we are obeying the rules of the lockdown.”

But the question is what government should do that these questions should not arise in their mind? Answer is still unknown.

It’s the time to act

We fight corona but we fight hunger and starving of these needy is equally important. Being capable if we can help them in any way we should do it. Because what steps government are taking is still not opaque for us to know. They helped bring out best of our life’s now it’s our turn to not let them die of hunger. These people are too part of this pandemic like us , just the difference is our suffering is much lesser than theirs. Help them in rising to better condition because then only we can fight corona. As our respected PM Narendra Modi Ji bought out the idea of ” sabka saath, sabka vikas”, here the government should show it by their actions for these people. Because they are equally as important as us. The cruel condition must improve because if not than the future is much darker. Fight corona , but not let them fight hunger because it’s our and government responsibility to look after each citizens fairly and profitably.

Living them in uncertainty is just like a empty future of our country with their dead bodies and harassed souls.

Ever got a chance to save the world? Well, many of us wouldn’t have. Watching superheroes on screen many would have wished to have superpowers like them well now it seems that you have a superpower which could help you save our society; for this all you have to do in stay indoors! Becoming a hero hasn’t been this easy ever, why not take up the opportunity and help save the lives of you and your family.
People always enjoy impromptu holidays from work and due to this pandemic; many of us got an impromptu holiday off as long as fifty-four days now!
I have heard people saying that if they had some free time they’d do this or that but always chicken out from doing those kinds of stuff because there is an excuse always ready at hand which says hello! I am busy!
Now what? As the days of lockdown are increasing the excuses are slowly vanishing. The bigger question now is what’s stopping you?
Why can’t we stay at home now and improve on ourselves, all the while saving us and society? Yes, it’s devastating what this pandemic has done to our lifestyle and life but these are the times when we need to have a positive attitude. Don’t think that you are stuck inside the house, think of it as you have been given the opportunity to reconnect with your loved ones. Think of this period as something that has given you a plethora of options to explore and improve yourself.
We were all running in a rat race when this pandemic brought the world to a grinding halt. When was the last time you took time out for something you once wrote in slam books as your passion or hobby? When was the last time you removed the dust settled on an old album and sat down to look through it? When was the last time you played any indoor game where the family participated? When was the last time you heard stories been shared among the family members and the roars of laughter that ensues? When was the last time you did all these things?
It’s been a while; It’s been quite a while when you have had so much free time. Make the most of it. Remember and bring the old hobbies back, learn and pursue something new, so that when all this is over, you come out better and stronger.

Explore while you stay at home. We live in the 21st century where there is no dearth of activities we can pursue to keep ourselves entertained. But all you need to do is to stay at home. I guess I realize where the problem is. We humans start to desire things we cannot get, earlier we did not get enough time to relax and unwind so we had a grudge regarding it, now when we have been asked to stay inside, people want to go out since that’s something they are unable to do.

The virus is our biggest challenge and enemy right now but the problem is that we cannot see it with our naked eye. If we could, maybe we could have avoided it while being outside but that’s not the case and that’s why we ended up living and staying behind closed doors. Behind that closed door, you are keeping yourself and your family members safe from harm. We can say it’s not our time with the virus raging in full force across the world but our time will come and scientists and doctors are working day and night towards it. Our time will come, as we wait with bated breaths for the vaccine against this virus to emerge, but till that time it’s better to stay safe than be sorry.

We all must have heard the adage ‘Prevention is better than cure’; you won’t get a greater time to show that you understand this saying and believe in it because the only way to prevent the spread of this virus is to break its chain of spreading and that’s only possible through social distancing and for social distancing to be a success we need to stay in our homes as much as is possible.

It’s easier to blame others for their mistakes and faults but it’s very difficult to take the blame. No one can be happy knowing that he is the reason that his family is suffering, so why leave it to chance? If we keep indoors, we keep our family safe and indirectly contribute to the safety of our society and country. We are accountable for our actions but we should not let our family members or our society pay the price for our doings. It’s time to become a little bit responsible and all that falls under the responsibility criteria is to stay indoors. Stay indoors and stay safe, stay at home to break the chain.

‘United we stand, divided we fall’

This adage is something we have constantly heard since our childhood days. We didn’t even know that while we were welcoming the New Year 2020, this year was going to make us implement this maxim like never before. A virus, invisible to the naked eyes, of the size of a micron, has brought the world to a grinding halt. Economies are tumbling, lives are getting lost, new policies and strategies are being brainstormed.

Now is the time when humans should take a united stand, although not by locking hands in hands, as we have to follow the social distancing norms!

By becoming united actually implies being united in thoughts and actions. All across the globe, we have just one enemy to fight─ Corona. Various issues of different countries have taken a back seat, even the global topic of terrorism hasn’t been discussed for a while, Why? Because the human form of terrorism is nothing compared to the terror this virus has unleashed.

Corona hasn’t adhered to borders and boundaries; neither has it been any lenient on people of any particular religion. We all are in this mess together and only by staying together can we get out of it.

This is not the time to hold on to grudges and animosity, nothing is greater than the gift of life and here millions of lives are at stake. Blaming a country or pointing fingers and marking out people following a particular religion won’t help the cause. This storm has ravaged the whole world and only by putting up a united front can we weather the storm.

This pandemic has brought up so many issues worth highlighting and people should sit back and analyze, are we different from the other humans? Sure we have different interests, different aspirations, different thought processes, we even follow different religions but internally we all are the same; the blood in our veins is red in colour, we breathe the same air and have the same set of organs. The supreme power that created this universe and created us, made us all the same. Then why cannot we put our differences aside?

Conflicts at times like these would only make our opponent stronger. We just have to realize who our opponent is─ the people or Corona.

Health care workers, policemen, sanitization workers, everyone is working hard to secure the lives of the masses. They also have homes, they could easily have laid back and let others do the work but they chose duty over relaxation, they are prioritizing their duty every day. They are helping people without even knowing their names, why, because they know and recognize their enemies are not the people by the virus. It was heart-wrenching to hear the news of attacks on the health care workers; how can people hurt them who are risking their lives to save us?

The news that we see every day reaffirms the belief that our only way forward is to be united in this crisis. It’s easier to break the chain at the weak link and we cannot afford to become that weak link because we’ll not only be endangering ourselves but even our loved ones.

The debates as to who is responsible, the criticism, the liabilities, the grudges, all of this can wait. Human beings have a great gift of prioritizing things and the pandemic and its control is the priority of the entire world right now. We should learn to recognize our enemies. Humans can become friends even if they were foes but this virus is a friend of no one.

It’s high time we realize that we are all in this together and it’s not the time to fight people, our fight should be against corona because we cannot afford to lose this fight at any cost.

 

Complaining about others won’t help the cause,
You’ll need to bring the negativities to a pause.
Make your heart the place where tenderness resides,
Do your part in standing united, so that the world survives.

Fight Corona, Not People

The deadly 2019 novel coronavirus, formally known as Covid-19 has emerged as a global pandemic now. Countries around the world are reporting positive cases of Covid-19 and the death toll is rapidly increasing. This virus attacks the respiratory system characterised by fever, coughing, sore throat and breathing difficulties. Cure to this fatal disease is unknown yet. It travels through the air medium and transmitted from human to human. First case was reported in Wuhan, China and since then it’s spreading like a wild fire. It has affected over 3.36M people claiming 239K deaths making US as the new epicentre of this pandemic.

During this time of panic the world is witnessing another outbreak disguised in the form of racism and xenophobia. A disease so deadly that has the capability to bring the whole world down on their knees.

Since, China was the first one to encounter this virus so Chinese and Asian people all over the world are being bullied, threatened and harassed as they are considered to be the supposed carrier of the virus. Students are being beaten up and thrown out of school, people are forced to leave the workplace on the basics of the physical appearance and cultural background. Mob attacks, comments like corona, half corona, coronavirus here people are referred to as corona. Stop consumption and use Chinese food and products. Many shops came up with ‘no Chinese’ signs. International hotels also added their contribution via signs like “we must say no to Chinese guests these days”

Numerous cases appeared alone in India where the victims are the North Eastern Indians. People are calling them corona, spitting on them or chasing them down the road. It is just worsening the situation due to their prolonged deep gutted bias. Racism of any kind is not appreciated it is a black spot upon humanity and the entire human race. Fighting among ourselves and playing the blame game has never resolved anything. What we need today is to bring everyone together and fight as one. Else the poison of racism will spread like a wild forest fire and there will be no water left to put it out. Such is the intensity of this man made virus.

People need to work in unison and act like educated individuals keeping aside their deep rooted bias and grudges. In difficult times like these unity is our only strength. We should look upon people as human beings with the eye that treats everybody as equal. Panic and stress would do no good to anyone. Division on any grounds cannot be afforded at this time or ever. If we fail to conquer this racist outbreak we would fail as individuals, society, nation and humanity as a whole. After all, “UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL”.

As we all are well aware about the disease called coronavirus commonly known as COVID-19 which cause illness in the respiratory system in the humans.
It is the new virus that is impacting the whole world badly.so as to minimise or to eradicate the no of COVID-19 case the best way that each of us can do for our side is to stay at home, because this virus is spreading primarily through contact with the person.when an infected person meets with another person then they touches their nose,eyes,and mouth the virus can be spread.
I humbly request all my citizens to please cooperate with government official because they all are sacrificing their life for the nation.
At last i would like to conclude my topic by saying “ in unity , we can stand”.
Hope everyone of us act as a responsible citizen to eradicate this epidemic.

The novel corona virus pandemic known as Covid-19, could not have been more predictable as the world is suffering a lot nowadays due to the very infectious and untreatable disease Covid-19, is gripping us day by day.
