HOW TO FIGHT THE ENEMY-I: Prevention - Is corona taking hold

Coronavirus is on the rampage. No end in sight to its danse macabre. Why this newly-born pathogen is so terribly powerful. Let us take a look at its ferocious arsenal and ways to deal with it!

NEW DELHI, Mar 30: Covid is claiming thousands of lives a day across countries. The ferocity of corona lies in its ability for asymptomatic transmission, ie, people not showing symptoms could be carriers of the virus and can infect other people. That is, anybody has it! Add to it,

(2) Its stability (can stay on non-biotic surface for long, say, 5-6 days as some Chinese studies have shown); and,

(3) Rapid transmission: Three fearsome weapons in corona's arsenal!

When half the battle is won

Once we know these abilities of the enemy, half the battle is won. The other half is identifying its achelles heel! And that is, it's not an airborne disease, but a droplet infection. We can easily win. The WHO's advisories issued regularly corroborates this.

That is why those who observe and study have told us (there is not much of science as such on covid yet) to keep a distance among ourselves else we are annihilated. This was the dictum of social distancing propounded way back in 1918 and flouted to the detriment of humanity, ending in a colossal loss of 10 crores of lives in the first recorded global flu, if reports are to be believed!
