Bad news about COVID-19 pandemic

Bad News in worldwide about COVID-19!

It sadden us to read about the COVID-19 pandemic had already infected more than 6 millions people worldwide and causing more than 300 thousands of deaths as a result. This is indeed the worst news in history for a pandemic that is causing so many deaths.

Why is it continuing at this rate of infection?

One simple answer we can think of is people are still not taking it seriously due to misinformation or just being defiant about it. We understand about the danger of not getting the right signal about how bad this virus can cause harm to individual when not taking all the necessary preventive measures to safeguard against infection. The right message can be obtained from all Government agencies worldwide and need to take action in order to avoid having the infections.

How come it is still spreading like wildfire since December 2019?

Simple guideline of social distancing and wearing masks in public but yet many are still not serious about it. Why? Guess some people are reading from a mix source of information that had confused their thoughts about what will be the right thing to do. Also there will be people who just refuse to obey the rules and do whatever they feel like doing. We presume that is one of the reasons why we are still having the rise in numbers for infections worldwide. As we had mentioned many times since the COVID-19 had announced as pandemic, we just need to do at least ONE month of isolation for the entire country as to eliminate the human to human transmission and slowly allowing it to die off. Unfortunately, this is not done by 100% people in the country month after month as we can see it had dragged for the last few months since the disease started in December 2019.

Is it there is no ending with COVID-19 pandemic?

Resistance to abide the guideline is the main cause of COVID-19 to persist on for many months. It is a very tough job for all Government agencies to handle the situation when not 100% people are willing to abide the simple rule of engagement. This is indeed sad and very disheartening when we know how serious it can be affecting individual’s health. Well, guess for all those who clearly understand the danger and having the right knowledge of preventive measures to do the right thing. We can only hope for the best outcome and hopefully those who are resistance about following the rules, do not get the infection to spread around us.

As we understand that countries are starting to ease on restrictions as there are signs of improvement but we must never be complacent about it since the virus is still very much alive and please continue to be vigilant so as not to spread this virus to others & loved ones. We all need to do our parts even though some may not do so. Every single bit of effort carry out by individual makes a difference. We must try to persuade those who may still be resistance about this and change their mindset as it is for the good of others!

Good news for once …

Sharing of information about their researches of producing vaccines can be helpful to get result sooner rather than later.
