Social distancing is the only solution to overcome the problem of corona and if people implement the government’s instruction and SOPs in government institutions, coronavirus spread could control up to maximum, Postgraduate Medical Institute Principal and Federal Ministry of Science and Technology Squadron for Corona member Prof Dr. Sardar Muhammad Al-freed Zafar said.
Social distancing is the key to avoid COVID-19. Squadron for corona, under the leadership of Federal Minister Fawad Chaudhry, specialists and scientists of various institutions are conducting rapid research on the coronavirus under the supervision of Prof Ata-ur-Rehman and in the next 10-12 months, there can be big breakthrough regarding the corona vaccine. In the same way, the preparation of ventilators can also be started in 4-5 months in Pakistan.
Keep your family home and away from others as much as possible. Don’t have friends and extended family over, and don’t go to their homes. People who look healthy still can be infected and can spread the virus. That’s why it’s important to stay away from everyone, even if they don’t seem sick.
If you have to go out, make sure you are at least 6 feet (2 meters) away from other people. Viruses can spread when someone sneezes or coughs out tiny droplets. They may even spread when people talk. These droplets don’t usually travel more than 6 feet before falling to the ground. Also, follow the CDC’s advice on wearing a cloth face covering (or a face mask, if you have one).
Prof Sardar Mohammad Al-freed Zafar said that coronavirus patients are less found in pregnant women, while a study is being conducted with the collaboration of Denmark. Whereas in China and the United States, there have been very rare cases of pregnant women being infected with the virus. He advised that newborns should be fed through mother’s milk but by the feeder.
The PGMI principal said that like 9/11, a new world will emerge after COVID-19 and all countries will have to spend more money on the health sector.
