Lately almost millions of people are isolated in their homes in an effort to eliminate the spread of the Corona virus.
After WUHAN’s success to let people free circulate in the country , the rest people in several countries are in quarantine, and medical personnel is trying hard to keep people alive.
People, being locked down, stay at their home not only to protect themselves but their loved ones too.
Spending time at home, most of us use the Social Media.We exchange information, express our fears, we make anecdotes….we clap our hands to honor the medical personnel, we make parties in our balconies, we sing.….
Though, despite the common fear, the common invisible foe, there are many who get out of their system jealousy, envy, criticism, offensive words.…as if this was not enough, misinformation, hoaxes,rumors, promises of a false cure, spread panic around.
Hackers are rubbing their hands! Be extremely careful on what email, messages, videos you share. Hackers have been using the virus to access computers and steal credentials.
What should we all do?
The best prevention advice is to :
*avoid exposure by practicing social distancing,
*washing your hands regularly,
**and avoiding touching your face, mouth, and eyes.
If you feel ill, seek medical attention. And instead of relying on viral chain letters, get real corona virus advice .
I accidentally found the following article :https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/janelytvynenko/coronavirus-fake-news-disinformation-rumors-hoaxes
I realized how fast the FAKE NEWS are spread…faster than the virus itself!
So, my dear friends, BE ON ALERT. TRUST THE DOCTORS AND SCIENTISTS.
The SOCIAL MEDIA is not a reliable source of information.
STAY HOME. STAY SAFE. WE ARE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT.
