Magallanes Mayor Jasmin Maligaya Bautista says there’s a good reason for the quarantine
Magallanes Mayor Jasmin Maligaya Bautista understands why the enhanced community quarantine over Luzon is necessary.
On Facebook, Bautista shared a post saying there was a scientific reason for the move, which is intended to drastically limit the chances for spreading COVID 19.
The post said the virus would always look for a new host to be able to multiply, so limiting the contact of people would deprive it of this chance.
Without a new host, the virus would expire.
Scientists say some 14 to 21 days are needed to starve the virus, so people should really limit their movement and their contact with others.
A total lockdown could extinguish it.
People who don’t cooperate just spread the virus, it warned.
Sumunod na lang tayo!
“Eto pala ang ‘Scientific Reason’ why there is a one month community quarantine.
You have to read about countries that successfully brought down their cases.
First you need to slow down the transmission by limiting people movement. The virus will always look for a new host so they can keep on multipying.
Once you limit movement you create distance for virus to jump to a new host. When the virus cant find a new host then they expire by themselves and disappear.
We cannot contain the virus proliferation in a mobile community. Because everyone will just keep passing it on.
Some scientist project the life cycle of the virus maybe from 14-21 days.
So we need to starve the virus by that number of days till they expire.
By partial lockdown we may slow it down. By total lockdown we extinguish it.
Its that simple sana.
But the contigency plan is being made complicated by folks who do not cooperate and keep on moving. Grrr…..
Let’s all cooperate po.
God bless Philippines!
God bless the world!
