To All COVID-19 fighters,
These are unprecedented times as we fight an invisible virus which does not discriminate between people and their backgrounds like religion, sex or race. We must work together and do our best to fight this through. Various precautions have been outlined by governments and doctors world over. We must abide by them at all times for our own safety as well as that of our loved ones.
We must also keep in mind not to spread false rumors as it leads to unnecessary panic and possibly disrepute. This is a punishable offense by some authorities. We must check/verify the received information and then make the right decision or just choose to break the chain and don’t forward.
Healthcare workers including admin staff, cleaners, ward boys, nurses, technicians as well as doctors are risking their lives to serve the people. At this stage they don’t need negativity in fact they’re all about making a positive impact now more than ever. They could choose to stop working like many others but most of us are safe because they’re all on the job risking their lives.
Some may visit hospitals/clinics for conditions unrelated to the recent COVID 19 outbreak, they too need care and attention. Others may come for symptoms related to COVID 19. It becomes difficult to differentiate symptoms of this virus from other non-covid 19 viral infections which a patient may have. Despite all our best measures all over the world cases of COVID 19 are still rising and with all safeguards, in place, some of us, unfortunately, get infected. This could be a patient or a staff of the hospital/clinic contracting the virus in the line of duty. We must not blame such hard-working people or spread rumors about them instead confirm/verify the information. In case you have been in contact with a potentially infected person who may not know themselves early on that they’ve got the infection please get evaluated if you have symptoms like fever, cough and a sore throat or shortness of breath. Please follow appropriate guidelines as per local governments & CDC / WHO. If the patient or home contacts of the patient are elderly/high risk with underlying conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems, etc contact the authorities asap. Remember we’re all in this together and by following the guidelines listed by the above authorities we will fight this and come out stronger. Stay home. Stay safe.
