Can We Fight the Menace of Corona Virus (Covid-19)?
Can We Fight the Menace of Corona Virus (Covid-19)?
Long back, I saw a movie named “Matrix” wherein viruses in the shape of small machines invade the ship from all sides and tear into it. The heroes do not know what to do and are at their wits end. It is great ordeal but finally the heroes escape this attack. The virus still remains. The point is we will survive too.
The Menace of Corona Virus attack gave me a similar vision. Do you find any similarity?
In the current scenario, we have the Corona Virus or Covid-19 which has upset the world. The virus which started in 2019 in Wuhan, China, is spreading its tentacles very fast across the world. It is a contagious case. But history has proved over and over again that viruses invade, destroy and ultimately we manage to contain it by either avoiding it or saving ourselves by way of medications. So can we fight the menace of Corona Virus (Covid-19)?
We have let loose our guard and helped unleashed this virus on us.
But before we delve further on the subject, lets understand the other major diseases which have hit the human race from time to time and whether we survived them or not.
