Its spread has been devastating and scary. And it has now reached the shores of so many countries that some may become worse than Hubei province if not contained well.
I have been watching it on YouTube and reading articles but this long article from Medium.com is now a must read: - Coronavirus: Why You Must Act Now.
The article concludes that the one thing that we must do now is social distancing. It will be tough to lockdown countries and companies, businesses and religious gatherings. But it must be done. Even a day of lockdown will slow down the spread quite substantially.
I pray with all my heart that it will be contained soon, after which we will still have to face another huge problem of its aftermath.
