Peoples awareness to fight Covid-19 in Bangladesh
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is drastically changing the lives of people, including the lives of young people. Schools and universities have closed, exams and events postponed, the usual health information services are limited, socializing with friends and wider family is highly discouraged and in some places even punishable. Results imply that the government needs to ensure proper hygiene practices in public transit and non-motorized paratransit vehicles. Moreover, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), pedestrian and bicycle facilities need to be improved.
People’s behavior in public places and in public transport :
Analyses revealed that COVID-19 caused large variation in mode preferences but small variation in trip frequencies. Males still go outside for work and shopping, putting them at greater risk than females. COVID-19 has drastically cut recreational trips, but not so many work trips. Although online work or education and shopping have risen, this seems to be limited to urban areas. Besides, buses continue to be preferred the most during pandemics for trips involving short-distance recreation, markets, and long-distance recreation. Results suggest the lack of online penetration in rural and suburban areas has prevented work trip reductions in those places, putting the inhabitants at heightened risk from viruses. Moreover, the majority of the people continue to use buses at the expense of their health for lack of cheaper alternatives.
No, people don’t maintain social distancing during the lockdown due to Covid-19.
Following proper guidelines is easier said than done because of various socio-economic aspects, prevalent especially in developing countries like Bangladesh.
During the lockdown due to Covid-19 people go out randomly without maintaining social distance whereas they should keep a distance of at least 1.5 meters (about 5 feet) between each other.
People’s behavior while moving from one place to another during festivals :
During festivals, they are moving from one place to another with their whole family without maintaining social distance. They engage in behaviors such as interacting with others from outside their own household, singing, shouting, not maintaining physical distance, or not wearing masks consistently and correctly increasing the risk.
The impact of such behavior :
In this situation, if someone coughs or sneezes, they spray small droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain the virus. If we are too close, we can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease, even if they do not feel sick. The best way to fight the spread of the virus is to stay at home, be away from our friends and socialize online. If we must go outside or meet someone in person then we have to make sure to keep a distance of at least 1.5 meters (about 5 feet) between ourselves and anyone around.
What I can do as a responsible citizen of the country to prevent such behavior :
COVID-19 doesn’t care about national borders, and it’s everyone’s responsibility to take the actions we’re able to in order to limit its spread. As an individual, I can contribute to helping stop the spread of coronavirus by staying home. To prevent such behavior I can stay safe by taking some simple precautions, such as physical distancing, wearing a mask, keeping rooms well ventilated, avoiding crowds, cleaning my hands, and coughing into a bent elbow or tissue. Besides, I can make people aware of the impact of the covid situation.
What I can say to them-
Regularly and thoroughly clean hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. This eliminates germs including viruses that may be on hands.
Avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth. Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to their eyes, nose, or mouth. From there, the virus can enter their body and infect them.
Cover the mouth and nose with their bent elbow or tissue when they cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately into a closed bin and wash their hands. By following good ‘respiratory hygiene’, they protect the other people around them from viruses, which cause colds, flu, and COVID-19.
Clean and disinfect surfaces frequently, especially those which are regularly touched, such as door handles, faucets, and phone screens.
