Don’t take chances with COVID virus: It will attack you.

I am writing this post after burying one of my close contacts, another victim of Covid 19. He was healthy and strong. He was young for his age. He was very careful in taking precautions for preventing the disease. He hardly went out of his house. He only went to his office and returned home. 

But once he had to attend work outside his office. He was probably careless on this day and the Covid virus attacked him. He just never got out of it, dying after a month of struggle. What a wasted life! Just with one risk in six long months of careful control, he was gone.

In recent posts, I have been posting different aspects of Covid disease. Without any hesitation I would like to emphasise the importance of consistent actions of wearing masks, keeping safe distances and maintain hygiene with washing hands with soap and water or sanitising. These are the only actions that can help in preventing this disease.

In India I see so many people being careless with these practices. Don’t stop wearing masks. If others don’t wear masks, you maintain safe distances.

I feel sorry for the people of the US. Even after so many people dying, still people are debating about the usefulness of masks and safe distances. Some are even demanding the right to not wear masks as it infringes on their rights.

Consistent correct mask use, safe distances and sanitized hands are the best methods of preventing this disease.

My close contact gave that virus one chance and it took him away.

Don’t give a chance to the Covid virus. It will attack you. It may cost you your life.
