Dr. Yasir Wani, a senior doctor often reflecting on Covid and quite vocal on precautions that need to be taken states :”When you lower your guard against Covid either by attending marriages or funerals giving two hoots to precautions, do think about those among your family and friends who aren’t as healthy as you are ! Those who are elderly, have comorbidities and those who are high risk for complications of Covid !Imagine the pain, guilt and the mental trauma of living with the thought that you were the reason for someone close to you losing the battle against covid just because you decided to have some quality time for once and attended a function where SOPs were thrown into the dustbin !Can one live with that GUILT ?Think about it ! Think hard !”
