When did you last wish your neighbor in the morning?I really think we are taking everything to the extreme, in the light of the current crisis. A couple of days ago, a very close friend of mine was totally ignorant of his neighbour and since he had travelled upto Guduvancheri in Southern Chennai from Guindy ( the zone travel was once allowed, not so long ago. This has now changed to travel only within district, without an e-pass.) he was afraid that the neighbor might have the virus. It so happens that it is a good gated community with high net worth individuals, with each family having at least one car to zip around. The neighbor was well known to me as well. My friend has gone to the other extreme. He has a work from home responsibility. But he has converted that into "lock inside home" responsibility.
We need to be more rational and not stupid. Even if someone tests positive, according to experts, isolation and treatment of that particular family can make everyone else safe. In my friend's case, when the neighbor is hale and healthy, not even wishing him and interacting with him is outright stupid. I did tell him as much. And he is much younger to me and has understood his mistake.
We should not take things too far. Let us learn to fight the virus together and keep on collaborating with fellow human beings.
