Since 2019, the world has gone to a state of fear, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. After spreading to over 130 countries, infecting over 140,000 people, this virus has instilled fear among people globally.
Spreading awareness about this virus is something anyone can do with the help of social media. One such app is Instagram. Users who boast thousands of followers can spread awareness easily.
Instagram has become a common app amongst people nowadays. This app helps share pictures or opinions quickly. It has millions of users worldwide. Trying to spread awareness through Instagram is a logical and good thing to do.
How can one spread awareness through Instagram? Stories and posts. Users can add stories and posts about the current situation and about precautionary measures a person can take in order to avoid infection. Users can also post about what to do when infected.
Posting positive outlooks and messages on Instagram also seems necessary. Considering how fearful most people are, positivity is what we all need right now.
These instructions can help us fight this pandemic:
- Stay indoors.
- Wash hands thoroughly(at least more than 20 seconds).
- Maintain at least 3 ft distance from a person who’s coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
- Cover mouth and nose while sneezing or coughing.
- Seek medical help in case of fever and any other symptoms.
Posting this on Instagram would definitely help people in many ways.
- Runny nose
- Sore throat
- Cough and fever
- Difficulty in breathing.
A person should seek immediate medical care if these symptoms are observed.
Posting about symptoms and precautions would certainly help us fight this pandemic. Information is key and the more people know about this, the better. It would also educate people and stops people from taking decisions that are not required.
Instagram can also be used to offer mental support. In conclusion, I encourage people to spread awareness by posting some parts of this article and offer support to those who are infected. Stay safe and do not panic.
