Sameera Reddy, mother to two small kids, has been keeping her children engaged during the coronavirus quarantine period. She has been regularly posting updates on this on her social media feed.
“I think this pandemic is very hard on the little ones. They can’t understand why they can’t go out; why they’re locked up at home. So, it’s important to be more patient than you usually are,” says the actress.
Sameera Reddy has been inspiring women with her positive messages. The actress, who recently gave birth to her second child, said, “#flattenthecurve Flattening the curve refers to community isolation measures that keep the daily number of disease cases at a manageable level for medical providers.”
She said further, “#socialdistancing does not mean it’s Christmas and everyone treats it like a paid holiday to hang out!This is not a joke. Why fighting the #covid_19 depends on You 🏼 #civicsense.”
She added: “As much as I make fun, make memes, try to make light of the situation with my children at home, it doesn’t take away from the fact that people seem to be getting still offended when I say ‘don’t shake my hand’, ‘don’t hug me’, ‘don’t pull Naina’s (daughter) cheek man’.
I mean how can educated people try to make light of the situation when the government is just doing their damn job. We are a huge country with a huge population and community transmission flattening the curve. Social distancing- these are all things, read about, research; don’t look at those WhatsApp messages of paranoia.
Actually, look at what other countries are doing, their mistakes, let’s learn from them. Let’s learn the right things they have done. We have people with low immunity system, our elderly. We have nurses and doctors who are doing everything they can man, so as much as we are trying to stay cool. Do the right thing, have civic sense and just try to control this damn thing, please.”
