India Lockdown

It is the time to be conscious what we really need or need to do, when a deadly virus is spreading into our society and becoming a mass by transmitting from one person to another. To control the spreading, lockdown is implemented from today throughout our state of Tamil Nadu like many other states and districts in India. No vehicle will be allowed to move in or out of the district and state borders except freight traffic; no one would allowed to come out of their house rather than buying essential goods and the lockdown will be in exists up to April 1.

What happens in Chennai after the announcement was terrific and people were almost forgotten the reason for lockdown and thronged the bus stands and chased the buses and crowd traveling to their hometowns since the work places and institutions are closed. That one scene of chasing the buses remind me zombies! Sorry to say like that. But that much of gathering is a way, that could easily widespread the virus to become havoc. Already one case of community spread is reported in our state and what if there’s someone like that in the crowd? The covid would travel to any extreme that is difficult to tackle.

We’re making ourselves get ready to fight, prevent the virus staying into our lives and living society.  Hand wash has been enforced into our lives which i think is the only way we could do something to preserve us apart distancing ourselves from others.  At this time we have any option other than following the govt. instructions, the only reliable source to save us from covid 19. Obeying the orders and self-restraint is more important to preserve us and our dear ones and it’s time to be real responsible and showcase the love, in an unusually way of distancing ourselves and live up to their reliance. India has crossed 500+ covid 19 positive patients and 12 reported deaths so far… People have to keep in mind that we aren’t forced to stay home to save ourselves alone but everyone we have connected in our lives. Hope the numbers become stable and were stepped down to no more.

We are also in a lockdown in our part of Tennessee, although essential business are still open and an exception is made for grocery shopping. I don't know if this will stop the spread of the virus, but I hope it does.

We have been staying in for almost two weeks now and the only time we go out is to grocery shop or for a short walk. Social distancing is happening too, we must stay 2 meters away from people which stores have markers if you are in a line.
Take care and stay safe, Jeevan.

All of our schools are canceled for the rest of the year. All businesses are closed except for essential personnel - so I work from home now and hubby still goes in but he's one of four people. Up until a few days ago, we still saw people hanging out in parks, stores, etc. like it was no big deal and then our Governor closed everything down, including all parks, beaches, and playgrounds. People were upset but it needs to be done right now. Take care and stay safe!
