Let us be responsible citizens and abide by Covid protocols
This is the sort of thing that doctors and scientists have been warning about.
The resurgence of Covid-19 cases in the country and elsewhere across the world highlights the need to be extra cautious in terms of containing the spread of the virus.
In the last few days, on average, there has been an average of around 5,000 fresh cases of Covid, resulting in an influx of new patients which our hospitals currently neither have the capacity nor the resources to handle.
It is difficult to deny the fact that the last few months have seen people and authorities becoming lax in maintaining health directives, with social distancing hardly maintained and many often seen flouting the use of masks while out and about on the streets and in public spaces.
While it would have been ideal to have put the coronavirus behind us, it is unfortunately a luxury we cannot afford at this point. The government has already taken several initiatives to send out health directives and increase capacity at hospitals in order to cater to the increasing number of cases, but we must understand that, when it comes to the coronavirus, prevention is better than treatment.
Until such a time when there is enough vaccination coverage or the threat of a new strain is eliminated, we must come to terms with the fact that a return to normalcy, as we knew it before the pandemic, is not an option. Each of us has a moral duty to do all we can to stop the spread of this virus, so let us be responsible citizens and abide by Covid protocols until it is safe to relax them again.
