1 Billion People in Lockdown Worldwide due to CoVID-19

“We are one.”

As accurate and as important that sentence is, there is now a staggering 1 Billion People under lockdown because of the novel corona virus that was first reported in Wuhan, China last December 2019.

The pandemic has long reached the global scale and has a total death toll of approximately 15,400 as of March 23, 2020.

With these statistics, there are now 35 countries that have implemented restriction of movement locally or under Community Quarantine. Including our country the Philippines, there is also Belgium, UK, and Germany.

But there are also countries that have now imposed a Lockdown, due to the major outbreak in the country. These are countries such as China, Denmark, El Salvador, France, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, and Spain.

The CoVID-19 like any virus targets that of weak immune system, the elderly and the little ones. Sadly some young people take advantage of this fact and have ignored the repercussions of their actions.

“Today I have a message for young people: you are not invincible. This virus could put you in hospital for weeks – or even kill you,”

– WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

“Even if you don’t get sick, the choices you make about where you go could be the difference between life and death for someone else.”

Ghebreyesus added

Imagine the effect of one billion people in the world stuck indoors, yes, there is a drastic disturbance for the businesses,schools, our lives and the nations activities but environmentally speaking, it is actually good for the Earth.

It’s a breather for our planet. My 1 Billion people, stay indoors and save the earth.
