Everyone was living a happy or at least, a satisfactory life until the coronavirus hit the entire world. Although it had been around since the end of 2019, but it went all out in the March 2020. That was the time the world realized how helpless their technologies and scientific advancements were in order to tackle the situation.
COVID-19 SOP Adherence around the World
The government from all over the world had no option but to impose extreme lockdowns and curfews in order to stop the coronavirus from spreading any further. They did whatever they had in their power to bring the spread under control. However, the situation does not seem to be coming under control any time soon. It is mainly because majority of people from around the world are not adhering to the COVID-19 SOPs. Many people still think that COVID-19 is not real and are not willing to following any SOPs.
This has led the situation taking the worst turn and countries such as the United States, Ukraine, India, Brazil, Iran, Pakistan, and many more are reporting even more cases in the second wave of the pandemic.
Coronavirus is real and is Getting Worse
Israel Figa who is a prominent medical researcher has taken it upon himself to create as much awareness around coronavirus as possible. He states that while the world continues to believe there is no coronavirus, millions are being diagnosed with it on a daily basis. Furthermore, several thousands are losing their lives on a regular basis. The Indian population had also thought that there is no such thing as coronavirus until they started reporting cases on a daily basis, which is now more than 250,000 per day.
This is the reason why people must start following the SOPs and take necessary steps to ensure they do not end up falling prey to this virus and get others around him infected with the same.
What Steps You Can Take to Avoid Getting Infected
Just when things are going the wrong way in terms of the coronavirus, even a single person can make a difference and create positivity around them with awareness around the pandemic. Israel Figa has advised people to follow the below steps and encourage people around them to follow the same to avoid any alarming situations in future. Israel Figa states that if one manages to follow the easiest steps and make them a rule until the clouds of the pandemic are dispersed, they can ensure they are not infected, nor the people around them if they following the same.
Always Wear a Mask
The first and foremost protection against the pandemic is that one must always wear a mask covering their nose and mouth. Many people tend to wear the mask and do not keep it on their noses, which is similar to one not wearing a mask at all.
Wash Your Hands As Much As You Can
The worst thing about the coronavirus is that it can survive without human contact for around 24 to 48 hours. This means that if you are living in an area where the coronavirus cases are emerging fast, then you may end up getting in contact with stuff that has virus on them.
Even if you are not living in such area and have no such coronavirus cases, still, there is no harm in washing your hands, as it is a common practice. Therefore, keep washing your hands with soap and if there is no access to soap, then use a hand sanitizer to kill any germs or viruses.
Practice Social Distancing
Another major and most effective SOP to avoid getting infected with the virus is to adhere to the social distancing SOP. No matter where you are, you must always ensure you adhere to the social distancing SOP and maintain a 6-feet distance from others.
It is possible that many people around you may not following this SOP and you would also witness many crowds here and there as well as social gatherings. If you are wise, then you must stay away from such places as these places are full of risks and may have someone who already has the virus.
Take the Vaccine As It Becomes Available
As soon as the vaccines hit the hospitals and other health centers for administration, several rumors started emerging around the vaccines that they were ineffective or caused abnormalities in people. This is the reason why many have stopped taking vaccines and in doing so, they are putting themselves at high risk of getting infected.
Therefore, if the vaccine is made available in your city and area, you must make haste, and get yourself vaccinated before you also end up being infected. You must encourage people in your family and circles to get vaccinated as well.
