With high profile cases coming corona positive in J&K and another death due to this lethal infection in Jammu taking toll to 23 it is now the time for each and every resident of the Union Territory to think and act in a manner to ensure that good results coming out of earlier lockdowns do not get squandered and things should not go out of hands. It is a tragedy that the deadly virus doesn’t exempt anybody and therefore going off track and neglecting precautions can have deleterious effects. Lately, after the announcement of lockdown 4.0 it has been seen that people have started taking things very lightly as far as social distancing and other norms to contain COVID-19 are concerned. What is important is that before venturing out in markets and other places housing huge gatherings, people should think about the harsh reality that the threat which was there during the lockdown starting March 25 is still looming large rather it has further deteriorated as the corona positive cases now are far more than before and the process of developing a vaccine for the infection is still at the stage of infancy. Under such alarming conditions one cannot afford to roam freely in public places and those who are indulging in such unwise misadventures are doing great disservice to society and should be tackled with iron hands as this is no time to allow such unkind and unworthy acts. The authorities should on the other hand ensure that not a single entity is allowed to wander outside until and unless there is a dire need or a genuine purpose. This is the only solution which is in sight and can help in containing the COVID-19 transmission to a large extent.
