    We should not selfish everyone love their life . you have to think if you are own family members go through this situation how you feel. What you expect from the people . Of course this is dangerous virus we have to take precautions consider other peoples life also . If same way Doctors Nurses ,police people selfish think about their life , families who will treat the people. Think how courage they are showing treat the patient . Same way we each individual by hand by hand with courage face this problem not run out of the problem take responsibility to give respect ,support to the patient to get all medical ,mental support come out of this problem.
