Ever since the lockdown ended, strict precautions had been put in place in order to minimize the spread of coronavirus. These included instructions such as always wearing a mask outside, taking the required social distancing steps and what not.
In Lucknow, it is easy to see people breaking these rules. When outside, a major population of the city can be seen without a mask. People are openly spitting, crowding and putting the lives of others at risk along with their very own. It is almost as if people are not taking the threat as seriously as they should.
While some stores and shops have done their bit to ensure social distancing and are following other practices, the average person goes ahead and takes these rules for granted, which is invariably what leads to the spread of the virus.
A gradual growth to a massive boom of cases
Lucknow's battle with Coronavirus has been a long one. The situation right now is scarier than it was when we first learned about the pandemic. Initially people were wary about the virus and would take the precautions as mentioned, which is why the situation was under control. The rate at which the number of cases are growing each day in the city now, is clear indication that people must not even think of breaching the rules. As the numbers continue to rise, it's only important to avoid going out for the sake of it and follow the rules.
In fact, Lucknow is also at the leading front when it comes to treating coronavirus. However, even this is something that can only go on as long as people themselves are mindful of the ways to prevent the spread of the virus.
While it may seem that there is no way to win this battle, the only way to do so is to take strict precautions. Wearing a mask and ensuring proper social distancing can go a long way in keeping you safe from this virus.
