Panic Stricken World

We are living in age of social media. Smallest of the incidents get reported and news accumulately create scare and panic. Very recently the world has come out of war on terror. Once the war was on, there was generally a feeling that the whole world is on fire. Contrarily, in his 2011 book The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined, Harvard University psychologist and famed intellect Steven Pinker argued that humans were living in the most peaceful era in the history of their species.

Likewise the on going issue of Noval CoronaVirus has been blown out of proportion by social media. The numbers are being misperceived and there is a panic and scare. Above clip refutes emphatically as regards threat of this virus. In country like Pakistan, two odd suspected cases has brought up a storm. Price of masks goes skyrocketing. Ordinarily in such a situation we should display empathy and compassion. However, we always think of self interests and people are exploiting need for masks and the panic which is prevailing. We should jointly help to educate people and get back to displaying trust in Allah as regards finality of death. Corona or no Corona, whose time is up will fly off.
