As the deadly coronavirus is rapidly spreading across the globe, many authorities are taking steps to stop the spread of deadly diseases. One such important step is social distancing or self-quarantine.
In the midst of the coronavirus epidemic, senior citizens, who are at the highest risk of infection, are struggling to run regular errands. As it is very important for senior citizens to stay indoors, many may struggle to run their household errands like buying groceries.
Amid the home-quarantine phase, a woman from Banglore has volunteered to help the elderly, reports Hindustan Times.
This inspiring woman has come forward to volunteer to run errands for senior citizens who are under self-quarantine. She further adds how she maintains constant hygiene by washing her hands and commutes only wearing a mask.
She hasn’t only offered to buy groceries but also ensured that the groceries delivered would be safe and protected:
Been thinking of doing this once my isolation is complete, but we need to think of the fact that supplies might be carriers too. Something to ensure it doesn’t affect us or the old folk.
While many others applauded her kind act during such testing times.
Anyone has elderly parents living in Bangalore? I am happy to check in on them and maybe run some errands. I am neat. I shower twice. I wash my hands (OFTEN). And I commute by cycle while wearing a mask. I can drop off supplies they need outside their homes. DM me.
People from other places in India have also offered to help those in need:
Anyone living outside has elderly parents living in Maitree Vihar #Bhubaneswar ? I am happy to check in on them and maybe run some errands????. I am neat. I shower. I wash my hands (OFTEN). I can commute by cycle. I can drop off supplies they need outside their homes. DM me.
Anyone has elderly parents or relatives living in #Bangalore? I’ll be glad to help. I have a bike so I can check on them without subjecting myself to public transport, can run errands and drop medicines and essentials if needed. #Koramangla
Just not in India, people across the globe have come forward to help those in need during this contagious outbreak.
Sacramento❗️❗️❗️If you know of any elderly people or people with an autoimmune disease or any one with other underlying issues and they need help getting supplies please let me know ! I’m more than willing to help go run errands to get them their needed supplies.
I live alone and no one depends on me, so if you’re afraid of putting your loved ones at risk by going out, please reach out. I’ll happily run errands and go grocery shopping for you. And I absolutely mean it. This is the time when we take care of each other.
I’m healthy. I’ve been self-isolating at home for a couple weeks. Heading out Monday-ish to replenish groceries, run must-do errands. I live in Carnation. Anyone know an elderly/medically challenged person near me who needs a grocery run? Pls connect us. ❤️#WeGotThisSeattlepic.twitter.com/ZrddyuKxYt
