We know it’s hard to believe that everything was Just well in Dec 2019, but Since Jan 2020 the year has been harsh on all. The Corona Virus Outbreak still seems to be a great Pandemic Situation even Today! (April 2020)
The Government of all the countries are taking so many precautions and new Bans are put out each day with the increase of rising cases of the virus. India where we live now has already been in LOCK-DOWN for 21 Days since 25th March 2020. Some states like Ours Gujarat, and Maharashtra were already on Lockdown since 22nd March, So it is easy to say we will be living a 24 days lock-down. But we all being Responsible citizens do our part to STAY HOME.
NOW we have come under Lockdown 2, which was declared from 15 April to 3rd May. 19 Days Lockdown Phase 2 in India.
And I am staying in a RED ZONE Area in My City Surat, is Under CURFEW Now as in 2 days cases have raised way to higher. (17 April 2020)
It was currently heard in the News and Social Media posts that Now Necessity Products will be delivered at your door steps. The State Government is trying hard to knock some sense into panic buyers. But I am sure the Government obviously has much to do around handling citizens and giving door to door check up facilities for Covid-19 suspected cases.

Positive Effects of the Lockdown
Despite being in lockdown has caused financial crisis to many citizens, specially the daily wage earned workers, the cities are clearing air pollution. This is something big, which can also give us a better air to breathe in future. India comes under a country with worst air pollution index as many of it’s cities are under poor air quality.
Pollution is Low compared to Before Lockdown
Many cities liek Delhi, Mumbai, Jaipur, Yamuna Nagar, Dhwarka and others have recorder clear skies, clear rivers including Ganga river. We could have never achieved this with any efforts.
A drop of 30% AQI levels have seen around worst polluted cities, and some even record a drop of 50% in AQI. Improving air quality.
Maybe the Government can take strict actions like this weekly in a year or twice to low down the worst polluting habits of mankind. It will only be easier to live in a cleaned country or world.
Unity by Helping Others
This is something mentioned above, where India is cooking for the needy out of goodness. There is more to just than cooking and giving them meals. The nation has also raised donation to help the needy not only in food but shelter or clothing where required. PM fund is a donation raised directly by Government. There are many more who have raised donations to help the needy, like Pay wallets, Delivery partners, and more.
Respecting the Daily necessity job workers like Sewage and Garbage cleaners, Policemen, Doctors, Nurses, Bankers, dairy and other food factory staff and all other Government staff who all work daily for others.
Delivery Boys and staff of Swiggy, Zomato come together to deliver groceries and necessity items despite being at risk of the virus. They have been taking goods door to door with out contact to keep their customers and people safer at low risk.
Indian Government Initiatives to Fight Corona Virus
The Enforcement Section and Police has taken multiple strategies to keep people safer. By taking up initiative to go visit doors to test and investigate the suspected which have been in contact with covid 19 patients or have travel history in recent times.
Going to various locations to sanitize the houses, buildings, streets and everything that can be sanitized there. Volunteers of political parties and Firemen too other social workers are being helpful by sanitizing the cities.
They have transformed the Trains to Isolation Wards, Indian railways have been very helpful with the staff to take credits. Working day and night to quickly disinfect and make clean compact train berths and sections to isolation wards.
There have been some cases where the public in some areas are not co-operative and have assaulted the Police officers, doctors, nurses too. They work for us and our safety yet they are being treated this way. It isn’t easy going out there to stop you for catching the virus of for your essential needs they sit at their desks, or to cure you they have to come in contact with you. It’s not their wish but their duty and they do it happily.
