• When ‘COVID-19’ is your GD topic, you can speak about so many things such as why it became a pandemic, the impact it has on our lives and economies, the lessons it taught to the world etc.

Points to speak:

  • COVID-19 was first detected in China and spread to the entire world within months. There are so many reasons why it became pandemic. Globalization, lack of immediate information-sharing among world countries on viruses, high population density in urban areas due to uneven development etc. turned the epidemic into a pandemic.
  • It revealed the loopholes in healthcare systems.
  • It affected our daily lives, caused job losses for many, caused an economic slowdown in many countries.
  • Covid taught so many lessons to the world such as improving healthcare systems around the world, the need for transparency among countries, the importance of self-sufficiency etc.
  • Covid-19 was originated due to human-wildlife interaction. Destruction of wildlife habitats is resulting in wildlife entering into residential areas. This reiterates the need of protecting the spaces of wildlife animals.
  • Social inequalities have increased a lot during the pandemic phase.
  • Covid changed the way we work. Now more and more people are working from home.
  • Viruses constantly change due to mutations. Viruses mutate when they move from host to host, which means person to person to adapt to their surroundings. When a virus has one or more new mutations it’s called a new variant of the virus. Covid variants are named after Greek alphabets – Alpha, beta, gamma, delta and omicron etc.
  • Maintaining hygiene, social distancing, healthy eating habits will continue even after the pandemic phase.

    I saw a covid patient. covid was a dangerous disease. No one could help you, for this reason, many people die.
    we learned many things such as our health system is weak, transparency of countries, lack of information about covid,
    Lakh of covid docs.
    No one is permitted to work if you are covid patient also your home was closed. so many shopkeepers didn’t allow two or three workers.
    Covid has impacted in education so education is an online mode in that time many problems were faced by teachers and students.
    So take care of your health, and do exercise on daily basis.

    Covid 19
    The world was stable except one country that is China as the coronavirus was making havoc in Wuhan of Hubei Province. But the global stability was short lived as the virus captured some european nations and US, thier was a rapid surge in cases. WHO, the supreme health organisation couldn’t stop the rampant pandemic which created pandemonium in world’s largest economies. Everyone was taken aback after the spread of such pandemic in 21st century, and to deteoriate situation China hide data and not discontinued International Flights. Initially China refused of any human to human transmission thats make it prime culprit in deliberatly spreading disease. There are still claims that this virus was leaked through a laboratory which China is refusing and insisting the origin to be any animal imported from South Asia, a chinese university report even pointed India for the origin. China is actively supressing all evidences suggesting China to be the origin.

    The situation is flagrant to the world, how China delayed WHO’s probe and is not providing key evidences later in investigation. Former Chief Medical Advisor to US President after retirement has affirmed the virus to be man-made, former US president Donald Trump has candidly blamed China for deliberatly spreading the lab made virus and even launched a scrutiny in the matter, which was replaced by another resultless probe after change in power. In response to gain sympathy China accused Mr. Trump being racist. The solicited WHO also intervened and asked the global multitude to restrain using the terms like chinese virus and wuhan virus.

    Many countries aided PRC by gifting medical essentials in initial surge within China but later all the aiders were sold with faulty equipments. This reminds us PM’s funny quote ‘Hypocrisy ki bhi shimma hoti h’ (jokes apart). The pandemic locked people inside their house depriving poors of basic needs around the world. Many African nations which were already starving found it a burden that cannot be heaved.

    Till date around 4.5 million succumed to novel coronavirus and still counting. The moral obligation of world should be accusing China of its blunders and demand compentation for mismanaging and spreading pandemic. Beside this the world should also check that UN bodies should not be influenced by wealthy countries. In aftermath of pandemic many blocs have been formed to coordinate to cordon off spread of future pandemics.
    WHO should be accounted for not taking proactive measures, being the apex body they should have warned world but belated attempts couldn’t deter this rampant catasthrope.
