We need to take COVID-19 more seriously. Despite the easing up on quarantine measures in some areas, we should all still keep in mind that COVID-19 is very much rampant and still does not have a definite cure. COVID-19 is now one of the leading causes of death globally this year and it continues to increase by the minute. As of this writing, it’s third in the leading cause of death where diabetes is number one, followed by tuberculosis. 

Since vaccines are still on the works, we should take all precautionary measures to stop further spread of the virus. Yes, physical distancing is not easy, it has  affected our way of life and the economy took a huge hit, but it is EFFECTIVE. 


In slowing down the further spread of COVID-19, each and every one of us needs to have a greater sense of personal accountability with our actions and be committed to it. Remember, COVID-19 can be asymptomatic, you may be spreading the virus even if you are ‘healthy’. So, social distancing should really be observed by everyone. 

Along with social distancing, we should also make sure to follow other precautionary measures like avoiding going out if unnecessary, wearing the proper face mask when going out in public, observing proper cough etiquette, and proper washing of hands.
