The Corona virus endemic has been a hot topic of conversation in the past month. Viruses that have spread throughout the world have become a serious threat in their handling, therefore the World Health Organization (WHO) states, the movement of the COVID-19 corona virus pandemic is currently very rapid.
The statement came because the number of fatalities caused by the virus from Wuhan, Hubei Province, China surged to exceed 15 thousand people spread in various countries. Italy and China are the two countries that contribute the most.
In addition to the two countries, there are also countries of Spain and Iran whose death toll from the corona virus reaches thousands of lives. Meanwhile, in Indonesia itself the government data release update delivered by Spokesperson specifically handling corona virus, Achmad Yurianto until Monday, (3/23) was 49 people.
With such a large number of victims dying, proving that the covid-19 virus pandemic is very reasonable and reasonable if the affected countries exert all their ability to ward off and prevent the spread of the corona virus more massive and more casualties.
Various steps and policies are implemented by each country. Of course this is adjusted to the impact it has.
However, there are similarities in the pattern that is carried out, namely maintaining physical contact between one resident and another resident or better known as social distancing.
The practice in this social distancing field also varies. Some have implemented lockdowns such as have been and are being carried out in China, Italy, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, Vietnam and Malaysia. But there are also those who only recommend work from home like Indonesia.
All these steps or tactics are carried out by each country solely for the sake of one goal, which is to win a battle or a match against the covid-19 virus pandemic.
Yes, the massive spread of the corona virus pandemic is like a fight. If we win, we are safe, but if you lose, then life is at stake.
Now, speaking of the fight against the corona virus, Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom when together with FIFA President Gianni Infantino compared the fight against the co-19 virus pandemic with a tactic in a soccer match.
"We can't win a soccer match just by defending, but we have to attack too," Tedros said.
Tedros said that physical distance could make it possible to gain time and slow down the spread. But, these efforts are a defensive action that will not help us to win in the fight against corona virus.
"To win, we need to attack the virus with aggressive and targeted tactics. We need to test every highly suspected case, isolate and treat every confirmed case, and track and quarantine any close contact," he said.
Agree with what was said by Tedros, that we can not only survive to be able to win the fight against the corona virus that attacks on all fronts.
Just like in football, however strong an Italian-style Catenacio defense is when faced with an Spanish-style opensive game at the 2012 European Cup Final, it must finally concede and lose.
This means that in this case every country affected by the corona virus pandemic especially Indonesia must immediately concoct a surefire strategy to combat the virus outbreak while thinking of a deadly attack.
In this case, you cannot rely on people for social distancing as an effort to defend, but, find other solutions to attack. Perhaps a rapid test is one way to attack. It's just that the implementation is not too late, it must be carried out massively also in order to prevent and even defeat the corona virus.
