Do you speak Corona ?

The future is now our past, but the past doesn’t have to be our future   Richie Norton

Are we witnessing ‘Words outbreak of Covid-19 ?

As corona is becoming more popular people are not lagging behind in inventing lexicography…more likely to be added to Oxford English Dictionary.

This is the just the beginning

Happy 2020

Uncertainty is the only certainty there is, and knowing how to live with insecurity is the only security    John Allen Paulos

Exactly at 12.00 mid night on December 31 st in 2019, we all wished happy 2020 to each other and welcomed the new year the next second.

We all had our own agenda,new year resolutions,plans,goals,promises,decisions,vows  and achievements…what not !

Hopes and aspirations touching the peak !

Laugh and the world laughs with you,fart and they’ll stop laughing

Fart

Every man knows the smell of his own fart.   Confucius

Why do we don’t mind our own farts?

Simple.We get habituated to our own smell over the time and forget how it smells,but we quickly pick up the new scent from the neighbor.

The fact is that regular farting is a sign of good health.

Corona Spread

All of you know by now how corona virus spreads in the beginning, later resulting in community spread.

Corona spreads through droplets,when an infected persons coughs or sneezes.Others  can get infected by breathing these droplets or touching the surfaces infected by these droplets.

Every day the medical community & scientists coming out with a new finding.

Now they are telling that farts can spread the infection.

Yes.You read it right.

Since the Infection is new to the Medical World,doctors,scientists and virologists are busy in the process of knowing and understanding the Virus thoroughly.

But did you ever dream that fart can spread Covid?

I don’t think anybody dreamed this way.

And how frequently you fart everyday?

It is said normal person farts 5 to 15 times a day. Again it depends of the type of food you eat.

The way science is advancing…Live thermal cameras picking the fart, emanating. Amazing !

Is this true to be believed ? May be scientists can explain better.

Is this Farting business & Corona …a new fake news?

Now you must be wondering whether covid-19 is a Respiratory infection or Gut infection!

it is said that virus can be detected in the feces of the infected person. By now you also know that covid infection can cause Diarrhea.

Way back in 2001 British Medical Journal did publish an article and it is shown that fart can spread the infection. Check this link Hot Air ?

So now the discussion is raging whether Fart can be a culprit in this present pandemic.

Can Corona Virus be spread through Farts ?

Still it is not confirmed weather it spreads via fart,however people are advised to wear facial mask all the time and not to fart with bottom bare (keep your pants on)

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you. Namaste  🙏🙏🙏

Social Stigma

Social stigma

Stigma is a process by which the reaction of others spoils normal identity     Erving Goffman

What is Social Stigma ?

It’s a long definition my friend.

According to Definitions.net (Freebase )

Social stigma is the extreme disapproval of a person or group on socially characteristic grounds that are perceived, and serve to distinguish them, from other members of a society.

Stigma may then be affixed to such a person, by the greater society, who differs from their cultural norms. Social stigma can result from the perception of mental illness, physical disabilities, diseases such as leprosy, illegitimacy, sexual orientation, gender identity, skin tone, education, nationality, ethnicity, religion or criminality. Attributes associated with social stigma often vary depending on the geopolitical and corresponding sociopolitical contexts employed by society, in different parts of the world.

10 Stigmatized health disorders

The primary source of the stigma comes from the fear of being infected.

Some of the health disorders I remember

  • Psoriasis
  • Obesity
  • Leprosy
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Mental illness
  • Substance of abuse
  • Cancer
  • Swine flu
  • Impotency & Barrenness
  • Epilepsy

Now you can add Corona Virus infection

In the present state of affairs,corona pandemic causing greater harm ! (11 sad situations )

Yes.Social stigma is happening because of the fear of the ‘unknown

  • you can see this every where.Stigma & discrimination reaching its peak.
  • Stigma is viciously directed at the infected persons,their relatives and friends.
  • Racial attacks 
  • Name calling of-Covid suspects
  • In many localities,resident associations are ostracizing the airline crew,barring the entry of medical professional & other health related workers into the the resident premises.
  • Even police personnel were obstructed from discharging their duties.
  • People who were isolated were stamped for the safety of the rest of the society further adding to the agony,even after the quarantine period is over.
  • News of people committing suicide because of the corona stigma,causing shock waves.
  • Medical ambulances are being attacked for the fear of spreading the virus’
  • Have you heard of communal distancing ? Those who became covid- free and got discharged from hospitals are facing ‘communal distancing’.
  • Those died of Corona virus are not allowed a decent burial or cremation,fearing that the dead bodies spread virus in the vicinity where the crematorium is situated.

What can be done at this stage ?

Some of my thoughts.

  • Don’t reveal the identity of corona virus sufferers.
  • Not to stigmatize people who are in quarantine.
  • Educating the community about the virus pandemic properly and the ways how virus can spread.
  • Avoid assuming or presuming things because so and so belongs to a particular race/religion.
  • Taking help from social media, send supportive messages instead of fear mongering news.
  • Support the community by maintaining social distance.
  • Better understanding of the infection & strictly follow the health advisory.

Dear friends please share your thoughts how best to stop this stigma psychology.

Thank you. Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
