Lucknowites, are you practicing and following these 5 things to fight the Coronavirus chaos?

Don't be a cov'idiot; stay home & follow the directives as issued!

In such times of a fatal pandemic outbreak, we're being given new directives to follow every other day by the authorities. It is absolutely crucial to follow them to flatten this raging curve and the primary step is to stay home of course. But even amidst such a chaos, there are certain things which we need to remember on a humane level to maintain our sanity, while being helpful to others too! So here are 5 things which should be mindful about and put into practice, during these chaotic and baneful circumstances.


Take care of the stray animals

Since the lockdown has occurred, all the eateries have closed their services and people aren't even stepping out. Now because of these reasons, the stray animals are starving to death. Also, there's a popular rumour stating that strays and pets can actually infect you with the virus but that is not the case! Pet cats and dogs cannot pass the new coronavirus on to humans but they can test positive for low levels of the pathogen if they catch it from their owners.

So please be mindful of these poor creatures on the streets and leave some water and food for them whenever possible. Their ultimate source of nourishment is you right now so be kind and generous towards these animals!

Reach out to the elderly

If you have elderly folks staying around you, do make sure to check up on them. This phase is absolutely critical especially for people over 60 and they might not be able to go out even for the basic amenities. So call up your neighbours and people you may know in your area to help them out with grocery shopping and other basic functions!

Develop a set of habits

Some experts claim that it takes 21 days to form a habit or to break out of a complex pattern. So since we're all gonna be indoors for the next 3 weeks now, it'll be wise for you to chalk out some good habits which'll be easy for you to follow! This social distancing period can help you to invest in some me-time and you can use this time to indulge in things which you've been putting off for quite sometime now. Read, meditate, get back into your art, learn something new- it'll help you to pass time in a productive way without feeling vacant and bored.

Keep a check on your distant family & friends

Yeah, we all run from our relatives because of the unsolicited advices and unsought questions but this is a time of crisis and chaos. Do make sure to check up on them, no matter how annoying they can get- do your part! You'd not know who might need your help in what.

And of course without friends we wouldn't have been able to survive this isolation period but do take extra steps to ensure that those friends who stay away from home, are doing okay. Frequent video calls and online multiplayer games can help to ease their anxiety while giving them a feeling of togetherness, which is any day better than feeling isolated from everyone.

Most importantly, stay home & be positive

We all know this by now- we've gotta be at home to combat the spread of this deadly virus. But there are people who are still roaming around the streets without any purpose or sense of urgency. This is absolutely wrong and against the rules right now so be home, wash your hands and keep on sanitizing for the greater good. Maintain distance from outsiders/friends so that you can see them again!

If we stay indoors for now, very soon we'd be able to venture outdoors. Try thinking about that no matter how difficult it is and instead of sulking, remember that this too shall pass!

Knock Knock

So if you're grounded at home just like us and the other 133.92 crores (as of 2017) of people, then these are the 5 basic things you should remember to do. Tag your friends in the comments and remind them to follow these essentials.

PS- Wash your hands and sanitise ASAP! Also, rest your eyes. Stay safe!

Glitches in CoWIN-App results in low turnout at Mumbai vax centres; only 48% get vaccinated on Day 1

A four-day-long drive has been slated next week, where COVID-19 vaccination sessions will be organised as per GOI guidelines.
