As of writing this post, COVID 19 has affected 1,792,779 people worldwide and caused about 109,786 deaths. It is just behind Yellow Fever, whose death toll was 100-150 K. Even though the death toll of COVID 19 is far below that of something like the Bubonic Plague (which caused around 200 million deaths), the rate at which this virus spreads is a matter of utmost concern. Many countries have declared a state of emergency. Many epidemiologists have said that humanity was not prepared for this. I disagree. My argument is that we may not have been prepared medically, but we couldn't have been better prepared socially. COVID 19 has actually brought forth the many advantages of social media. We are now more connected than ever, and can talk to our friends and family while still being in a state of lock down. Isn't that a magnificent thing! Moreover, precautions to take for this virus can also be easily told to the whole world. The trending hashtag-based campaign #safehandschallenge (also started by the WHO) has seen global celebrities educate the public on the act of hand-washing through carefully curated social media performances. This wasn't the case with the SARS epidemic or even with MERS. So let's contain this virus, while knowing that not one of us can do it without the other. After all, we're all in this together.
