We are in this together to fight COVID-19
The pandemic continues widespread. More than 175 countries and territories have registered COVID-19 incidents. We are in this together, the best we could do is be inside our home and not believe in the myths which are being spread across various social channels.
We at DSSG want to focus on safeguarding our resources which is Security personnel, we made sure all the security personnel have proper safety tools like a face mask, sanitizer so they can be safe and keep everyone safe.
Moreover, DSSG has built a network through which we conducted all of our CSR projects with the help of NGOs via their foundations. One of which is ivillage, a helping hand for DSSG in providing washable and reusable face mask to the needy.
It is DSSG’s civic duty to help the one in need. All our concentration and efforts so far are on being the helping hands. Meanwhile, non-governmental organisations and foundations are doing commendable work in being the helping hands in education, food and medicine under the coordination of COVID-19 fighters.
Without question, a public-health emergency such as the coronavirus pandemic calls for a national response – where government, private sector, civil society and citizens ‘services can be used effectively. The response from NGO’s in India is doing better work in serving the people who are in great need of their help.
How Humanity is beating the deadly virus?
We have been here before, a long time ago to fight Polio, Spanish flu and we fought together and won. Today, with the efforts of the Indian government and people, India is Polio free.
In addition, people from all communities came together and helped one other who were in need and are still helping the one in need.
Seeing the way COVID-19 is affecting people all over the world, it’s about time we make a stand against this deadly virus and it already began with the start of lockdown.
Various NGO’s from all over the country are raising their helping hands in feeding the one who is in need, not only NGO’s but also the police are coming forward and helping the one in need.
Government’s efforts to fight COVID-19
While being the second most populated country in the world, with more than 1.3 billion inhabitants, the nation has recorded few fatalities and infections, prompting concerns as to whether the outbreak has not spread as easily as elsewhere.
The Prime Minister’s call for a national ‘Janata Curfew’ was widely heeded in a bid to encourage social distancing to reduce the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the lives of millions of Indian people.
In addition, the Indian Government has implemented many preventive steps to mitigate coronavirus entry and spread in the region. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is constantly assessing the ability of the nation to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic in India.
Taking rapid actions to limit travel by suspending visas and quarantining all incoming travellers has helped. According to health officials, more than 1 million passengers have been screened at airports, limiting the entry of coronavirus at the beginning of March.
As the state and central governments are continuing to implement new steps and responses to resolve the present situation. A 24X7 control room has been introduced to ensure continuous supervision and address queries.
Moreover, the government has slashed bank charges on financial trade transactions to help our the industries and companies. The government has agreed to create a task force for an economic response to COVID-19 under the Finance Minister. This also expanded the date of the Aadhaar-PAN connection to 30 June 2020.
As things stand now, most governments in Indian states have released notifications for prohibitions on public meetings and activities. Medical screening is performed at places of an entrance, such as hospitals and appealed to follow the rules of lockdown.
The central government has instructed businesses in the public and private sectors not to fire their workers or slash their wages.
Too many people now have a tragic tale to share, whether by disease or because they experience the social or financial repercussions of closing down all but the most important thing in the world.
Our take is to combine all the resources of the government and the private sector in helping the needy and by following the rules of lockdown, we can defeat the deadly virus.
