How COVID-19 spreads in public places

Almost 100 people in Ohio were infected with coronavirus after man ...

Just a look at that diagram of how COVID-19 spreads and I don’t have to write one word.

Meeting places primarily air-conditioned ones are a prime places where COVID -19 spreads very fast to large numbers.

When countries and government advice people not to gather in large numbers, this picture explains the reason behind such orders.

It is safer to obey such orders than trying to fight for rights or privileges.

Every large gathering even outside has the risk of widely spreading this disease.

A young man took every precaution for a number of months. One day he went to buy a second pair of spects which he did not need and was in an optician’s air-conditioned office for about 15 minutes where there were a few others waiting as well.

Within a few days he was down with COVID-19.

He says, don’t even give the least chance to the virus. It will attack.

The wife of a leading doctor in Chennai did not leave her house for 4 months. Her only risk factor was that her car driver bought her provisions.

She got the disease and died a few days later.

The driver was tested and he was positive but asymptomatic.

Let’s keep safe. We do not know who will be the next victim.

In my last blog, I indicated that my e-book COVID-19 is ready for pre-order.

I am thankful to God and the couple who have started the ball rolling by ordering the first two.

The final editing and formatting processes have been completed and the e-book should be available in Amazon in a few days’ time.

Take care. Stay safe.
