War with COVID-19 pandemic

Since the start of last year December 2019 when the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, we all are solely involved with the never ending fighting with this deadly virus which had already claimed so many lives of our dearest and continue to be harmful until we get the vaccine cure. What can we do? At this very moment, our ONLY cure will be social distancing & isolation! Yes! That will be the ONLY way to fight against this deadly virus and helping to contain it so that it will no longer be able to transmit human to human. Please abide to this simple and yet effective way as a prevention to avoid further spreading. This means we have to act just as a human being regardless of races or religions to combat this as one people. That way, we will slowly emerge as victory against COVID-19 pandemic.

It is time for us to be a little more kiasu in times like this since it affects everyone’s life. It is like our lives are hanging by the thread and once when we are not careful, it puts us in danger as well as those closest to us. Since this virus can easily transmit human to human, we really need to be extra kiasu in order to avoid getting infected.

This may sound simple but a tough situation. Why? After reading news every single day, we can tell that not all people will have the same determination of doing just that. It is a very hard path for all human beings at this stage since there are resistance from certain group of people who just want to defy this sort of action like social distancing or isolation whenever possible. This group of people simply don’t agree of doing such thing as they just want to do what they want without any sort of consideration for safety of others. But we still have hope that they will simply wake up one day and abide to this simple rule for the safety of themselves as well as their loved ones. This is a long battle with COVID-19 as well as different human perspective on this matter. We just hope that one day in the near future, everyone will see as one human being to another and do what is right as to eliminate this virus together. It is like hoping for a miracle as we do believe it can happen. Hopefully to be sooner than later.

Every single effort to be carry out by each of us together as a community will be a light of hope against COVID-19. This battle with COVID-19 pandemic requires us to be just human again. Only we think alike and do the same thing as to avert this danger of getting infected. We need cooperation to carry out the most difficult task and do what is right together instead of blaming one another for its cause. Now is not the time to point blame but to be UNITED and find a solution instead. Get all resources together and share information as to come out with the vaccine cure! That is what we need to do at current situation. Be human again and help one another today!

Of course, we also need to rely on true news rather than fake news as it can be harmful when we do not know the truth. But the current situation of pandemic, it is best to keep wearing masks and washing hands with soap often whenever you are in public. Try as far as possible to minimize your public appearance and do what is needed and head home thereafter. Be informed of the news from reliable sources and know whatever is going on so that you can take all necessary preventive measures. It is sad to hear news about Chinese being beaten for no reason at all. This disease is not anyone’s fault as it does not choose who to be infected. One is just unlucky to be infected and having it to spread to another. This virus does not care about races or religions and can infect anyone. So, we all human beings should stand united and fight against it by using the right method of preventive measures and precautions. That way, we can prevent it from further spreading of human to human.

Think like human and behave like human! Then we have won half the battle already! The next half battle will depend on individual to abide the social distancing and isolation to avoid further spreading. Helping yourself as what you want to help your loved ones to be safe & sound. Let us work together for a safer society and put an end to this disaster together as one.

Once again, here are some of the guidelines you can follow as to help yourself and others against this virus and eliminating it together.

COVID-19 second wave attack

As we can read online the reports about COVID-19 pandemic, there are some countries already seeing a drop of infections but others are increasing in deaths as well as infections. From the current statistic, it will likely to be continuing for at least a year from now as not all measures are done with cooperation of people doing at the same time to prevent the spreading. This might be due to conflict of information being released and people may not be knowing how deadly and serious it can be if not to implement the right method of preventive measures.

It is indeed sad that not all countries have the same measure of precautions taken in terms of advice to stop the spreading. We do understand the strong impact on the economy but if it is not handle the proper way, it will be ended up more drastic on not only economy but more deaths and infections. Why don’t we stop and starting thinking of the long term effect that can be happening to us if we let it continue with the spread of COVID-19 pandemic. Without proper guidance and right mindset about the COVID-19, we will likely to be hit with a second wave of coronavirus attack without having the vaccine cure. We hope that the entire world should be concentrating not only researching on the vaccine cure but a method of getting everyone to cooperate and not allowing it to further spread from human to human. We must never rush to ease down the precautionary measures too fast without proper guidelines.

Every action we take will result with reaction to it. If we are not careful, it will definitely be back to square one again. This will be like a cycle of infection by COVID-19 without any ending. Simply precautions like washing hands with soap often, wearing masks in public and social distancing plays an important part as a preventive measure. We should try as far as possible to keep ourselves isolated which is currently the best cure solution. However it may not be possible for all then with the social distancing and wearing masks will play a part as preventive measure. We all have to cooperate in order to conquer this virus otherwise it will continue month after month without knowing when it will end. Think of yourself and helping your loved ones to be safe. Start doing all the right things and avoid getting infected by COVID-19.

Here are some tips that can help to avoid getting the infection and hope everyone will be safe until the vaccine cure is made available.

  1. Washing your hands with soap often as to get rid of it on your hands.

After reading the facebook posted by Minister Chan Chun Sing regarding the new reusable face masks production which will be distributed in Singapore, we can clearly see that our Government is putting lots of efforts to help us with the current COVID-19 pandemic. Even though we may witness the increasing amount of infected cases but the much efforts being done to help in ensuring our health safety and well being can be seen by us. As we had commented that this COVID-19 pandemic will be a war for the people to conquer and we need to stand UNITED as one people in order to win eventually.

We do see that there are still people who are pointing blames of the causes for the spreading of virus. We had been warned about human to human transmission and needed to be isolated or social distancing to avoid being infected but still some people are not heeding to this request. So we are to be blamed for all the spreading of this deadly virus and no one else. As there is no vaccine for cure and the only viable cure will be social distancing & isolation to allow this virus to die off by itself when there is no more human to human contact for transmission. Therefore we have to make sure that we minimize contact with people for as long as 1 month without human to human transmission of this virus. We can help one another to end this virus since without human as host then it will simply die off.

We do believe all Government agencies are doing their best since this virus can be considered as something no one has ever experience before and how rapidly it can be spreading. Government agencies can only implement step by step solution as to see what works best and of course it may result with increasing of infections if the method does not work. We can see that there is no guarantee of method use will be 100% successful but at least an effort is made to the best of knowledge as to help avoiding more people being infected. It is like Work In Progress as solutions are being implemented. Basically, from what we can see is ourselves to maintain social distancing as well as isolation will be the current cure of this virus until the vaccine is made available to us all.

Health is wealth! As long as each & every single one of us try by all means to keep oneself healthy, it will definitely a huge wealth to us. Though the world will face economy disaster due to this virus as many businesses maybe shutting down and people might be jobless but as long as you are healthy, you will be able to survive through this ordeal. Being healthy is the greatest wealth you can ever ask for. So, please do keep yourself with proper social distancing if needed to be in public otherwise be isolated to reduce further spreading of this deadly virus. We truly believe that when everyone do it at the same time for a period of time, we can actually end this pandemic. Do it today together as one people in the entire world instead of allowing it to continue month after month. We need to do it together at the same time as to avoid further transmission. We do hope that everyone will understand the simple concept of isolation to help yourself as well as your loved ones.

Once again, we like implore to everyone with the mentality of doing the right thing as to help each other to overcome the current situation. Here are some useful tips you might want to follow as to reduce further spreading.
