The major problem is that we do not want this disease to over power us.
Therefore we should do the right thing by
providing the right resources to the right people.
Provide medical staff with adequate PPE.
We cannot go to the war front without preparation ,
so also we cannot take care of Coronvirus patients without adequate equipment.
Patient coming into the hospital with Symptoms or No Symptoms must and should be tested.
Healthcare associated infection is the infection acquired 48hours after admission.
If a patient is not tested and later has COVID19 ,everyone who has contact will be in jeopardy
This will be very expensive, patient life ,cost and healthcare workers and preventable deaths.
Also it is important to note that depending on the agents,infection can be transmitted by contact that is person to person.
Due to physical distancing people are encouraged to stay home.
So no person to person contact.Pray for God intervention to
save our situation while we are doing the right thing.
