A simple way to shoo away the deadly…
At the time of our travel to Malaysia, everywhere it was Swine Flu doing its job of scaring people. At KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) there were doctors to do any needful. On the road we could see few people wearing masks for precaution.
But what we also saw was a very noble & simple way of taking precautionary measures. Bottles of hand sanitizer were kept at different public places such as airport, shopping malls, hotels…..to reach to common man. People were encouraged to use it free of cost.
These are simple, educative & cost effective ways to promote awareness and prevent a major epidemic. And they neither need govt.’s permission nor depend on it to take that small step.
It is all in attitude. I always wonder, why can’t we in India think of such ways. I have not seen a single place doing this or similar thing, not even in hospitals.
Have you ?
