Bhumi Pednekar on Covid-19: “Now is not the time to put our guards down”

India went through a deadly second wave that paralysed the country and actor and humanitarian Bhumi Pednekar is urging the citizens to not let their guards down. Despite falling COVID-19 cases, Pednekar is reminding people that we are still in the middle of the pandemic and that we all need to be super careful so that we can arrest another spike in cases.

The actress, who runs a social media initiative COVID Warrior aimed at helping those affected by the pandemic, says, “We need to stay super vigilant because the virus hasn’t gone anywhere. Lives are at stake constantly so we will need to act responsibly. Each one of us has the power to contribute and help India to bounce back. Let’s do that for our country.”

She adds, “We have to understand that by being careful, we are also aiding the medical fraternity who have worked every single day since March 2020. We have to understand that they too have families. We are putting them and their families at risk too by being casual about coronavirus. By being conscious about our responsibilities, we will be helping the health infrastructure too.”

Pednekar wants every India to stay super vigilant and follow all the recommended procedures to keep a check on the virus spread.

She says, “We are in the middle of the pandemic and now is not the time to put our guards down. Yes, we all have to work and look after our families despite the pandemic but we can be very mindful about maintaining social distancing, washing our hands or sanitizing them regularly and follow all the recommended steps as soon as he we reach home after stepping out. We can try and keep the virus at bay. Let’s aim to do that.”
