News update: Editorial: People at forefront of battle against coronavirus

Posted on

ABU DHABI, 13th March 2020 (WAM) – Follow health and hygiene protocols laid down by WHO and governments, the English language daily ‘Gulf News’ urged in an editorial today.

With Covid-19 being declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation, there’s understandably a lot of anxiety, panic and paranoia around the world over the rapidly spreading virus.

While it’s safe to fly out if you absolutely need to, this will help minimise the risks of spreading infections, especially among the more vulnerable section of the population.

Similarly, panic-buying of hand sanitisers, spray disinfectants and wet wipes is irresponsible let’s remember that for any of us to remain safe and infection-free, it’s equally important for our friends and neighbours to be infection-free too! And the best way to do that is to follow the health and hygiene protocols laid down by WHO and governments and remain vigilant at all times. Since the symptoms for coronavirus are very similar to the common flu, it’s essential that we don’t ignore any cough and cold conditions and take adequate precautions while commuting or interacting with others.

With such simple but critical steps and avoiding unwarranted risks, we will win the battle against coronavirus.
