Did you know, like Typhus, COVID-19 can be contained?
Did you know that way back in 1941, a deadly typhus fever broke out in Poland’s Warsaw ghetto? Some 400 000 Jewish people were crammed together, in winter too. It was a perfect breeding ground for disease and death, sparking even more fear.
Fortunately, amongst those imprisoned were the Jewish doctors. Together with community leaders, they motivated for social distancing (as much as they could and as restricted as they were).
Those infected were quarantined to prevent further infection. Student doctors were mentored in secret and the need for hygiene reinforced to the inmates. Finally, the Nazis brought in food, water and soap (albeit for their own reasons) and this helped.
Social distancing, Quarantine, Isolation and Good Hygiene is the KEY TO SAFETY and prevention of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Stay Home. Stay Safe. Stay Masked.
