The topic is serious. Those who do not understand or understand Corona, try to consider only 5 things:
1: – How many times has your collar tune changed since birth?
2: – How many times the borders of two countries have been completely banned till date?
3: – How many times the school exams are canceled or malls, theaters etc. are closed?
4: – How often do the courts or other offices appear to be closed?
5: – How many times has the government applied Section 144 due to a virus?
The problem is that the government is not telling the whole thing to the public because the public is not scared. But the warning is constantly giving and the whole effort is being made to keep the public safe. But the public is not happy with the joke. Those who still do not understand see the position of Italy and China on Google
The logic behind the public curfew *.
Since the life of the carona virus in one place is 12 hours and the public curfew is 14 hours, the places or points of public areas where Karuna can survive will not be touched for 14 hours and it will break the chain.
What we get after 14 hours will be a safe country.
That idea is behind. Further it will be a drill if needed longer in the near future … drill
- Special Appeal – for Corona * This week is extremely viral for Carona.
It’s called #community_stage. If you stop this time then okay … otherwise the pandemic will go on stage. Then we can all fall into it. In Italy, people initially took it lightly. Keeping the party in mind as a holiday, friends continue to meet relatives so that it has become an epidemic by spreading in the community. Who is spreading, government is not able to catch.
Fear, depression, insomnia, loneliness … are true in Italy today. It will take years to get out. Your life matters a lot to your parents, siblings, friends. How many people have the responsibilities of not knowing you. So be responsible. SO PLEASE, don’t take it lightly and spend as much time alone as you can. Read good books, play fb, wats app, you tube, download movie and watch it. But please be alone. Your carelessness and ridicule should not be too heavy on you, your loved ones.
