Testing, Tracking and Isolating
As long as we do not have a vaccine or a medical remedy for the virus, the whole or part of the population will be exposed to the risk in getting infected, once we start going back to semi new normal. The lockdown strategy is a temporary measure and should not be prolonged any further, as the cure will have worse effect than the virus and symptoms. The current lockdown has serious impact on the wellbeing of the population, the economy of the country as a whole and will slow down the recovery time. Achieving near 100% protection from the virus is not going to happen until a vaccine will be put in place and this is not going to happen overnight or even next month. Lockdown status is not sustainable for the long term. As an alternative we should consider the approach and the strategy South Korea applied right from the start successfully, namely testing, tracking, and isolation. Therefore the plan should be put in a place similar approach otherwise we are in for long term Lockdown, daily firefighting, which will have devastating impact on the society. Safety measures should be put in place in order to overcome and minimize the risk and go on with normal life without serious impacting the population. The lockdown is a preventative measure but effecting negatively on our daily life and have serious impact on the population
Why the contribution is important
We should consider a long term solution until vaccine is available. Lockdown is not the solution. It is just slowing downing the infection process and it works but not practical to our daily life in the long term and it is not the norm!!
