India is under total lockdown for 21 days with everyone being advised to remain indoors amid coronavirus threat. Here are a few ways to self-isolate in shared spaces
Guwahati: Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a 21-day country wide lockdown on Tuesday, making physical isolation a prime mandate for many and also one of the first steps that can help break the chain of the deadly COVID-19 or coronavirus pandemic.
However, the message of physical isolation often conflicts with the situations where we live in shared spaces or with a family. How can one partner isolate from the other? How can we isolate with kids in the house? How can we isolate if we live with roommates?
The pandemic coronavirus is a serious threat to human life and the sad reality is that even though there are some vaccine candidates, it may not be ready for another 12 months. It may take over a year to discover the right vaccine, stated Tedros Adhanom, director-general of WHO.
Hence, the only ways to slow down the pandemic are physical isolation and quarantine and following some basic steps to ensure sanitization and staying at home.
