Covid situation seems to be going from bad to worse. Breaking all the previous records of highest daily cases, the country has crossed the six digit mark with more than hundred thousand cases reported on April 4. Although just eight states in the country are driving the fresh surge of infections, the situation is not encouraging in Jammu and Kashmir where more than 400 cases were reported on April 1. However, a step in the right direction has been the closure of schools. Children are more vulnerable to spread infection, especially among their elders. It is the right step to close schools for a week or two to let the infection spread slow down. There has been a slow and steady rise in the number of coronavirus infections across the country. The virus that has killed 2.78 million people globally and more than 127 million people have been infected. The first wave of the virus overwhelmed the medical care sector to the point that hospitals started running out of bed capacity while the critically ill patients were asked to stay home and get treated symptomatically. In many cases, doctors were faced with the tough choice of letting an old man die for the want of ventilator and divert it to save a younger life. These hard choices brought out the best and the worst in the people affected by the pandemic. In India, there have been more than 12 million infections and over one lakh sixty five thousand people have perished due to the virus. By and large, however, the situation has remained in control in India. The central government led by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken effective remedial measures to ensure that the spread of the Covid infection is curbed. However, the coronavirus is beginning to rear its ugly head yet again. Over the past four weeks there has been a steady and sharp rise in both fresh cases and mortalities. It points to the fact that people have lowered their guard. Even though the humanity’s survival instinct has crossed many milestones and a vaccine is available in a record time in the market for anyone to buy, it will be still many months before the world can be at peace with itself. According to the WHO, the story of Covid-19 is unlikely to get over very soon. Economic lockdowns are not the answer. Instead, it is the responsibility of citizens to follow SOPs which will prevent the spread of infection.
