Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The disease was first detected in Wuhan, Hubei Province; China. The disease has now grown to become a massive global pandemic, victimizing hundreds of thousands of people across the length and breadth of the planet earth.

On 24 March 2020, the global figures for COVID-19 victims had just crossed the 400,000 mark. And this number continues to grow every minute at an exponential rate.

Notwithstanding the brutality of this infectious disease, a significant number of the spreading of these cases have been attributed to pure human arrogance and failure to observe simple instructions. This applies to all the countries in the world.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has been at the forefront calling for people to avoid social gatherings and unnecessary travels. National governments have been promulgating stringent measures culminating in total lock-downs; be it in China, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Iran, India, South Africa, or United States of America. But still people continue to move; roaming around, mixing and mingling with every Jack and Jill. This is pure madness to the last dot. It is just unacceptable to take such a casual approach towards a pandemic which can potentially wipe out generations.

There is a huge price to pay for idiocy and ignorance. In most cases people pay it with their own lives.

As the world battles to control this COVID-19 pandemic, let us learn to live responsibly within our areas of jurisdiction and habitation. Get yourself in order, and stay at home. This is not the time for pseudo heroism, where people seek to patrol beerhalls, pubs, sporting arenas, outdoor activities and other social gatherings. Such madness is unwelcome at this juncture.

This is not the time for stupid bravery. You can go six feet underground with such ignorance. Unfortunately, such idiocy may also claim the lives of other innocent souls.

The battle will be won soon. Let’s all contribute to it its arrest wisely and responsibly.
