With active participation of residents of small colonies, housing societies, villages for 15 days, the spread of Corona virus can be controlled easily.
People have shown their willingness to overcome the pandemic. Recession in positivity during the last ten days is an indication.
Transmission of the infection in rural areas is a concern and has laid greater stress on rural health facilities.
Experts in the field of medicine and management feel that if people decide and foĺlow rules strictly for 15 days, the chain can be broken.
Strict no on gatherings for celebration of marriages, engagements, birthdays, funerals and post funeral rites etc MUST be decided by people. Gatherings at street corners in the evening in villages, urban colonies are spots for transmission. The families where any person gets infected, must be isolated at home itself. The other members must follow social distancing, use of masks, sanitizers, wash hands and other rules of hygiene.
By following restraint, without neglecting rules and not falling prey to emotions, the spread can be prevented. This will also avoid possibility of the third wave.
