COVID-19 : Tighten The SOP To Win!

AFTER EFFECT

Diseases Affecting People Routine Life

Every day, the Coronavirus is showing a higher infection rate and daily death toll. That’s not enough, there are also new variants from abroad that cause the infection to occur faster without any obvious symptoms. There are victims who are admitted to the ICU only after a few hours of being confirmed as suffering. There are those who, when taken to the hospital, have already become corpses. The ‘ability’ of Covid-19 to cause death is becoming clearer in our eyes.

Herd Immunity

One of the most effective ways to reduce the danger of Covid-19 infection is through vaccination.

SOP

Complying with the SOP listed by the authorities

One of the most effective ways to reduce the danger of Covid-19 infection is through vaccination. Unfortunately, many Malaysians believe viral messages from random people and friends we don’t know at all, rather than messages from our Director General of Health who is recognized as one of the best in the world.

First of all, we need to know that this vaccination program is necessary to produce herd immunity. The more people are vaccinated, the harder and slower the infection will spread. True, the vaccine does not guarantee that we will never get infected again, but the EFFECTS AND SYMPTOMS suffered by a patient are expected to be less severe. If lately more and more people are going straight to ICU, maybe after vaccination, it’s enough to just quarantine at home until they recover. We have to always remember, the space and manpower in the hospital is getting more and more limited.

Meanwhile, the government also called to tighten the SOP. In addition to complying with the SOP listed by the authorities, we also need to tighten self-monitoring at home. Get used to wearing a double face mask when in public, as recommended by the Ministry of Health and outlined by the Center for Infectious Disease Control (CDC) in the United States. Streamline the application of the face mask by ensuring that there is no space between the face and the mask. Combine a three-ply medical face mask (3-ply) with a fabric face mask to achieve a protection level of up to 85%. Start it yourself, without having to wait for it to be mandatory.

And remember, make sure you use an approved fabric face mask, not just cover your face with a layer of cloth or purdah, no matter how many layers, to comply with the SOP and also for the safety of yourself and your loved ones.
