Our country being no exception- the government of India as well as the state government is doing its best to fight the meance tooth and nail. But at the same time, we being responsible citizens of largest democratic country in the world must act prudently and follow all safety guidelines prescribed by the Helth ministry to save ourselves and our dear ones, in short, the entire society, from this scourge. Norms like social distancing, washing hands regularly with soap, putting on mask, and not spiting outside, must be adhered to rigorously. Till the time no vaccine is available, we must diligently follow the instruction given by the government in this regard. Education, being a sphere, where social interaction is essential, has suffered the most in these turbulent times.
