The killer Virus

March 22, 2020 |

As if the ongoing tragedies brought about by wars and hunger were not enough, we have a new killer on the horizon: new Coronavirus. The deadly infection caused by the virus that involves vitals of a human being has taken over 10,000 lives globally and many more are feared to die in coming days as the helpless governments around the world and health organizations struggle to evolve a mechanism to contain the crisis that has spread to dozens of countries. India officially recorded its first death due to new Coronavirus in Kerala. With China, where the virus was first reported, being one of the hot destinations for Indian tourists, we may be staring at a larger crisis. We do not know for sure but it seems there may be more truth to the fears of infection having spread across the country than what the governments are telling their citizens. Unfortunately, the speed with which the virus spread caught both the scientific community as well as the governments off guard. It was only after confirmed cases of new Coronavirus came to fore that the government at the centre started to act. Many high level meetings have been chaired by the union ministers and officers with the chief ministers, chief secretaries and health secretaries of various states and union territories, including Jammu and Kashmir, to review the preparedness in dealing with any eventuality. PM Modi himself has stepped in many times to address the fears and concerns of citizens. The situation seems to be going from bad to worse however. The ‘firewall’ that was put up at Srinagar airport, apparently the only route through which the virus may enter the landlocked Valley, has failed to work, allowing the infection to enter the Valley. Now that the Coronavirus is here, there is a need for greater awareness on how to tackle its spread. This negligent attitude that allowed an infected person without checks can have disastrous consequences. There are many ways for the virus to enter Kashmir. And there are reports of negligence at every door that leads to Kashmir. Viruses rarely leave trial of their journeys. There should be mass awareness that those who have visited the affected countries, or have been in touch with those who were in affected countries, and are developing symptoms. They need to get screened immediately instead of facilitating the spread of the killer virus. This way we can fight the Covid-19 effectively.
