Our safety is in our own hands
Many people are criticizing the government decision not to extent the government holidays and the opening of the economy. It is right partly, considering health issue, but it is not rational. The world economy is presently in deadlock. Economic recession has already been started in many countries, supply chain has been collapsed and the pressure on demand side is growing manifold.
Many economic sectors have already been collapsed. As a result, pressure on economic activity is tremendous and it is very urgent to resume the economic activities. Now the question is, which is more important either life or economic activity. The answer is both are important because both are interlinked. Life cannot be continued without economic activity and economy cannot be opened without people. So, considering the prevailing economic situation, the government has decided to discontinue the government holidays as well as to resume the economic activities.
So, in this crisis moment, it would be wise to take care of our own by ourselves and to continue the economic activities for our survival. If anyone can stay at home in a safe and secured way, nobody should interrupt his self quarantine or self-isolation.
