New York: ‘Namaste’, a way of greeting each other in India to avoid Coronavirus worldwide, may prove more effective than greeting other countries because it is an important social rule to avoid the virus. There is no violation of keeping distance.

A New York Times report titled ‘The Covid-19 Riddle: Why Does the Virus Lose Some Plays and Spare Others?’ According to Coronavirus has shown its outbreak almost everywhere on earth. While it has wreaked havoc in metros like New York, Paris and London, the situation in Bangkok, Baghdad, New Delhi, Lagos has not deteriorated so far.’

It said, ‘The question is why the virus has more havoc in some places and less in some places? There are many theories and speculations about this, but no concrete answer has been found. Knowing this can help in finding out how to deal with the virus, who is at risk from it and know when it will be safe to go out of the house.’

The report said, ‘Epidemiologists said that cultural factors, such as creating a social distance that is already continuing in some societies, make some countries safer. In Thailand and India where the cases of the virus are comparatively less, people greet each other with both hands by saying ‘Namaste’. At the same time, in Japan and South Korea, long before the coronavirus comes, people bow their heads and greet each other and they have a habit of wearing masks when they are a little sick.’

According to the report, due to the culture of taking care of the elderly at home in developing countries, the lives of the elderly are being reduced in comparison to western countries. Ashish Jha, director of Harvard Global Health Research Institute, said that due to the large population of young people in many countries, epidemic cases are also low.
