The rapid growth of Coronavirus disease(officially known as COVID-19) has become a matter of concern. Today it has spread in almost all the countries of the world and the number of people killed by this virus is increasing day by day.
In such a situation, the government of each country is doing every possible effort for stopping it from increasing but the challenge is that this virus is spreading vastly and we have only one solution that is social distancing.
So far, total 1,854,197 cases are detected with 114,293 confirmed death across the world (Last updated: April 13, 2020, 07:28 GMT). This virus is growing at such a speed that it is becoming difficult to control.
According to WHO chief, it took 67 days from the start of outbreak in China’s Wuhan in December to infect the 100,000 people worldwide. The pandemic, however, spread rapidly after that as it took 11 days for the second 100,000 cases and merely four days for the third 100,000 cases.
China had officially declared first case of coronavirus on December 31, 2019 and coronavirus cases hit the 100,000 mark on March 6, 200,000 on March 17 and 300,000 on March 21.
The only way to stop this global epidemic is lockdown.
Today almost all countries are following this lockdown.
China has already started to show some positive result by accepting the lockdown.
India also started with 14 hours lockdown in the name of “Janta curfew” from 7 am to 9 pm IST on Sunday, 22 March 2020 to help reduce community spreading of coronavirus disease in India. On 24 March, the prime minister announced that India go under ‘total lock-down’ for the next 21 days i.e. from 25 March 2020 to 14 April 2020.
Let’s know how this lockdown will help-
- People will lose contact with each other and it will stop or slow down the spreading of the coronavirus.
- The concept of social distancing will remain.
- In all, a good habit of cleaning will develop forever like the use of sanitizers and all.
Let’s understand how social distancing will break the chain of this virus. As in this video we are seeing how we can break the chain of this virus by following social distancing.
