The battle against Covid is taking place on two fronts – individual and governmental.
Individuals are expected to adopt safe practices and practice social distancing to the best of their opportunities & abilities.
Governments are –
- focusing on the suppression of illness by ensuring that communication of the virus is severely restricted. This has meant restricting all forms of physical communication (travel, work, entertaining, etc.) to the maximum extent possible.
- utilizing available healthcare & testing facilities to the best possible extent to cure those who are already afflicted.
There is a third front in the fight against Covid that must be actively encouraged to play its role.
