Our valley has seen a plethora of curfews in past, but the curfew it undergoes nowadays is far different. The curfew now is termed as ‘Corona Curfew’ – which is nothing but the prohibition of gatherings and crowds to curtail the spread of the Covid infections. The authority has decided to cut the movement of people to stop the virus from spreading. However, with the arrival of a grand festival of Eid in the Muslim region of Kashmir, relaxation has been provided to allow several activities in the valley. With the announcement of relaxation, all the markets have begun to swarm. Despite the Covid threat, people have flocked out of their homes as if the pandemic has promised to enfeeble itself for a while. On the one hand, infected people are losing their lives. Some are struggling for their lives. Some crave for an unforced breath. And here some are, on the other hand; busy shopping for Eid. There seems to be a smooth exchange of things in the markets. No one is there to stop them. The relaxation has indeed been offered to buy essentials, but we should remember not to buy Covid instead. There are no queues made to keep people waiting for their turns. No use of sanitizers to disinfect hands. No maintained social distance. And at places, no use of face masks, which is dismaying to see. The curfew is imposed to save our lives. To stay inside homes and not to make crowds outside should be our prior responsibility to break the chain of the virus. Even if necessity leads us to markets, we should follow the Standard Operative Procedures issued by the healthcare. This is the time to avoid unnecessary contacts and rescue humanity.
