Lockdown! A financial death to Economies
The most known is the lockdown. The lockdown will not be an effect socially. Instead, it will be a financial death for economies.
The economies are already suffering the impact of the first wave.
The time stopped by and the huge tide of COVID blew away the wealth. Before it could heal, there is another tide hitting economies.

Also, the loss of lives of loved ones is a heavier loss than the financial loss.
It is the right time to make the right choice.
India has started to witness its second wave. Additionally, the death toll is higher than before.
Surely, it has worsened the state of many.
India’s Second Wave
With more than 90,000 cases in a day, India ranks third affected by the COVID. Following the highest number of cases after the United States and Brazil. India’s cases are again escalating with the second wave.

Maharashtra has the most number of cases in India. Subsequently, lockdown and curfew have been applied by the Maharastra government.
The government has urged to strictly follow the protocols. Moreover, the police have now taken strict actions.
The public even showed awareness. Furthermore, more than 1,00,000 reports were filed for violating the protocols.
Additionally, more than 24,000 people were arrested.
Now or never!
Undoubtedly, the situation is worrisome globally. A platform like Google has made a significant initiative to share the message. Importantly, the isolation has risen various other health issues.
Now, it is the responsibility of the beings to shield their surroundings from the effect of the virus.
