We have been through multiple waves of COVID infections from last year; different virus strains have come and gone. We have even started naming them like hurricanes. The latest in the list that is causing quite a scare is the Omicron strain from South Africa. We know very little about it, but one thing we know for sure is the importance of getting vaccinated and wearing masks.
More the number of vaccinated population less likely will the virus be able to survive. I feel that everyone needs to take personal responsibility towards protecting our family and their community at large. Most of us have been inflicted with COVID fatigue; I’m not referring to the fatigue that is part of Long COVID syndrome but the impatience that has set in our minds about this relentless episode of this pandemic. When will we walk out freely without any fear, anxiety, and most importantly, without masks?
We don’t have a concrete answer yet, but historically the pandemics/epidemics have eventually died down over a while. If our ancestors were able to come out of the Spanish Flu in 1918 in 2 years without a vaccine, antiviral medicine, or technology as we have today, we could very well be optimistic about seeing the end of the tunnel soon. Until then, we all have to practice safety precautions in the upcoming holiday season.
As much as the pandemic has taken a toll on physical health, it has also harmed mental health. Feeling of depression, isolation, despair, anxiety, etc., can be pretty crippling for someone already dealing with the financial burden from COVID-19. It is only natural to feel overwhelmed. These are some tips to maintain your zen:
We all need to spread the holiday cheers again without spreading the infection. This year we are in a better position than last year’s holiday season, with robust vaccines for prevention, potent medicines for treatment, and astute minds trying to beat the odds. We need to believe in the magic of holidays to instill hope, optimism, and joy worldwide. I am wishing you all a very joyous and safe holiday season. Let’s all hope that 2022 puts an end to this pandemic.
