Crucial months for spread of COVID-19 community transmission (November 2020 to January 2021)

 Fatigue, complacency and total unlock are the factors that has totally changed the outlook by the people about Covid-19. On the other side of reality check reported in Nagaland post on 18th October 2020 regarding Covid-19 in Nagaland by Health and Family Welfare Department has issued caution that Positive cases of Covid rate is 8.5% higher than the National average of 7.9%, symptomatic cases has also increased to 4% and cases among people with comorbidities has also increased to 0.4%.

Dear concern citizens and responsible leaders, it is right time to wake up once more to work together to stop the spread of Covid-19 among the communities.
It’s not a prophecy neither prediction nor scientific analysis but purely from my personal experiences let me suggest few things not just for the sake of writing but to in- force SOP for implementation.
1. Corona Virus started last year in December at Wuhan city, China. In such a short time this Virus could reach entire world specially in cities and towns because of travel history. Therefore it is imminent to reach all the rural areas in Nagaland if proper steps are not taken into consideration on time.
2. Starting from November, the towns in Nagaland will be crowded for marketing, it means shoppers will be increased. Therefore the consequences will be more violation of SOP.
3. Festive season has started; Dimapur town and Kohima will be experiencing many shoppers from the other districts and villages. Even at present, many people do not follow SOP. Hence, if some strict implementation of SOP is not imposed in time, it is expected that Corona Virus is sure to spread to all the towns and villages in Nagaland. 
4. Unlike the previous year this time, weddings are expected to increase. Unless, the administration makes a separate modalities or SOP for wedding, there is an ample chance to increase Covid-19 cases.
5. The culture of fast food around the streets in Dimapur is increasing in numbers. Just go out in the evening and see how the lovers of fast food in a large number never bother about SOP. Whose responsibility to monitor for the maintenance of SOP.
6. Naturally during Christmas season, many people like to go for marketing, especially at night. Many young people would like to go spent time in open space like stadium etc. These places are like young people favorite place for merry making and party. Almost all of them do not follow SOP.
Therefore I appeal to all concern citizens, leaders of all organizations, or concerned Authority to wake up from our slumbers and act seriously atleast for three months starting from November 2020 to January 2021 to stop the spread of Covid-19 among the communities.
