What NOT To Do During The Coronavirus Outbreak


As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread across the globe, many countries have gone into lockdown in order to stop and control the spread of this virus. While there are plenty of articles online telling people what to do when stuck at home during #Covid19, there are very few advising people what not to do. Unfortunately, there are some who are fluent in stupidity and continue to not see the severity of this situation. Eg. Social distancing and self-isolation doesn’t mean coming out in clusters at a specific time to clap hands, hit utensils or do the Garba (coronavirus or not, if it isn't Navratri, you shouldn’t be doing it). Don’t be that person and if you’re still doing any of the following during this quarantine time, you need to stop.

Here are a few things you should NOT do during the coronavirus outbreak.

 1) Can’t Touch This

Your hand and face are like forks and power outlets; keep them away from each other if you want to avoid a mishap. Your hands are a carrier of germs, so whether or not there is a virus outbreak, Do NOT touch your face.

P.S: Acne-prone people are winning right now since they’ve been practicing this for years.

 2) Don’t Stockpile Masks

Here’s the thing, if you are healthy and you wear a mask, it’s doesn’t mean you're protected from #Covid19. (It's as useful as singing go corona, corona go). If you buy all the masks in the store and a sick person doesn’t have one and you come in contact with that person, we hate to break it to you, but that mask isn’t going to help.

Since everyone needs to self-isolate and quarantine themselves at home, there's another mask you can stock up on- Sheet Masks. At least this way, when this coronavirus ends, you will come out with gorgeous skin.

3) Airplane Mode - Off

The only #travelgoals you should be accomplishing is walking from your bedroom to your kitchen. Airports and aeroplanes are where you are most likely to catch an infection so put a hold on those travel plans.

4)  Stay Indoors

Okay introverts, this is the moment you’ve been preparing for your entire life. It’s time to get out those books, turn on your favourite show, and slip under the covers. Also, don’t forget to keep watch out for those extrovert friends, they aren’t used to this so they will need your expert guidance on how to survive this coronavirus quarantine.

5) Two’s Company, Three’s A Crowd

No matter how much you stress on the fact that you should avoid crowds, people just don’t seem to get it. It's simple: The more the number of people gather together, the more likely the spread of the virus.

6) You Are Not A Doctor

If you feel sick, don’t take your regular flu antibiotics. Get professional advice and call up your doctor. That'Operation' board game you played as a kid didn't automatically earn you a medical degree.

7) Stop Being Racist

Ever since the coronavirus outbreak, Asians have faced a lot of hostility. It wasn’t acceptable to be racist before the pandemic, and it sure as hell isn't acceptable to be one now.
