What will it take for some people to believe the COVID-19 virus is a serious issue?

March 19, 2020

As of today, it has become a pretty serious situation throughout the world considering the virus can spread very rapidly and can stay for a long 2–3 days on any surfaces which we might tend to touch. This thing in itself is scary.

People not being serious means there are two possibilities:

  1. They know about the severity of the virus and are taking the necessary precautions but are not panicking.
  2. They are completely ignorant of the fact that COVID-19 is a dangerous virus and that the damage being caused could reach their neighborhood at any point of time.

For now, panic could prove to be much more devastating than the virus itself. Gaining information and staying updated from the right sources is of utmost importance in this situation.

For now it looks like majority of the people are from the 1st category since the whole world is on a lock-down mode and the 2nd ones, well, its the people like us who now have the responsibility to explain and make them realize that necessary actions should be taken and that we must all behave responsibly for this short period of time so that we can get out of this without much loss.
