Covid-19 is the pandemic that has made it challenging for the world to invent some vaccine against it.The only way to avoid it,is the strict observance of precautionary measures suggested by the health experts.A complete lockdown has already been observed in Pakistan ,but keeping in view its drawbacks ,it has been lifted out. Now we are bound to take other precautionary measures seriously.Non-serious attitude of masses towards the observance of SOPs set by the government is creating more panic.
Now government is supposed to arrange effective mass awareness campaigns regarding this pandemic .Moreover preparation of strict mechanism by the government for the enforcement of SOPs is need of the hour .The option of lockdown after a proper interval can also be reconsidered because it may prove helpful for the government in enriching its health system with more facilities as well as slowing down the pace of virus spread.
Cooperation between the centre and the provinces can make this battle against covid-19 easier. At a lower level the people who have their say in their respective areas and also understand the gravity of the situation must take the responsibility of following the SOPs first by themselves and then they should convince their neighbourhood to do the same.By this way we can reduce the effects of this pandemic to the lowest level.
