ESSENTIALS OF SOCIAL-DISTANCING AND SELF-ISOLATION WHILE PURSUING ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES
When we talk about lockdown conditions, two things come to our mind. These are social-distancing and self-isolation. I have tried to answer the two for our benefit. It has also been said that those who do not obey the rules of the game, they will and are suffering the consequences of our misdemeanor or not remaining confined to the rules.
We all are aware that those countries which adopted and acted according to the norms which are necessary for making this exercise successful, it is in the fitness of things to adopt the principle of safety-first percept. Any transgression would prove to be counter-productive- deaths and destruction besides may spell doom for the booming economies around the world.
In real sense, there is a great lessons learned; those countries who adopted social-distancing, self-isolation, sanitizing ourselves on touching something besides keeping ourselves neat and clean to keep ourselves safe from infection of Novel Coronavirus Pandemic/Covit-19.
In this, two things are very important: these are Social-Distancing and Self-Isolation, which I have explained below:-
Social means action in the society or community in which we are living and distance here connotes a safe distance which we have to adopt while in the market place or outside our homes. It is the distance observed by everybody while going out or while purchasing something from the marketplace. This healthy distance is about two meters so that we do not get infection from others and keep ourselves safe.
The self means the particular individual; or a person and isolation means performance of an act or instance of isolating ourselves or an act of separation from others in order to safeguard ourselves from any contagious disease which is spread through our contacts or in the instance case through adherence and following some norm of behaviour of safety first realization.WHY LOCKDOWN IS A NECESSITY
If we all follow lockdown norms with utmost sincerity, till such time a suitable vaccine is found for the cure of infection, it is essential to keep ourselves safe from this dangerous infection. It has been seen that those who assiduously followed and obeyed the norms of lockdown, there were less infections and resultant less deaths while those who did not comply with the lockdown norms or were late to react had unfortunately more infections and resultantly more deaths.
OBSERVANCE OF LOCKDOWN NORMS WHILE PURSUING ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES
If we have to come out from the predicament of Coronavirus infection, it is in the fitness of things to follow individual home-quarantine or institutional-quarantine (those who are working for keeping the economy ticking while observing social-distancing and self-isolation norms as we cannot let the economies globally go to doldrums. A balance has to be created in this direction.
