Pandemic is at it is worst in India. At the time of writing this article, India is the second biggest suffering country.
This agony started in December 2019 when infection in Wuhan started taking lives. Since then, we have been requesting everyone to support each other and not succumb to their greediness during this situation. Greediness has not stopped, and the pandemic continues. Seventeen months and we are still in pain of not traveling freely, low business, loss of dear ones, etc.
When accountability is discussed at the international level, countries blame each other. At national levels, provincial or state heads are blamed, and ultimately ordinary people are blamed.
Has anyone checked personal accountability of continuing pandemic? Spare few moments and ask yourself about the contribution from your side to stop this pandemic.
Many people who succumbed to this infection had plenty of unfulfilled responsibilities, and many went away when they had plans to enjoy a retired period after working for the whole life. These losses are are irrecoverable and permanent.
Everyone asks about the role of governments or a country during this pandemic. Why does no one ask the same question to himself or herself? What have we done individually to control this pandemic? Donations? Expert opinions? Comments? Is our role only limited to this as humans?
We donate and share on social media and then speculate on products that are meant to control pandemics. Our knowledge about the product? “Zero.” Why are we dealing? High demand, easy to deal, more profit.
Have you realized this greediness will lead to loss of life?
One straightforward example which is extremely easy to understand. Today every person on the earth knows there is an oxygen shortage in India, and most of us take this as an opportunity to earn good money in the short term.
How this shortage incurred, and why the a sudden surge in demand? People trusted and paid whatever seller demanded is of the causes of a sudden surge of oxygen demand in India. That product is a finger pulse oximeter.
People trusted this product. My close friend was using this product and had to be hospitalized for oxygen which hospital meter showed less than 80, but the oximeter showed more than 90. Trust led him to death bed.
This was an avoidable situation.
Today humidifiers and air-purifiers are being sold as oxygen concentrators. Is this fair? Karma says, “It is equally wrong to see something which is wrong and not stopping as doing something wrong. Can we stop each other from doing wrong? Can we support each other in bringing this world to normal condition?
Remember, no one is safe until everyone is safe.
