 Stigmatization of COVID patients

Have you reached out to persons with disabilities during this COVID-19 period?

Supporting and accepting COVID-19 survivors, what are your views on this?

I totally agree with welcoming COVID-19 recovery patients back into society. Once they are declared free from the virus, it is only fair that they come to their family. However, they should still wear their nose masks.

I believe COVID-19 survivors should rather be applaud for they are fighters and for that matter heros. They should be encouraged to share their experiences for the society to realise the reality of the existence of the virus. It is no no for stigmatization.

We need not stigmatize anyone.They rather need our love and empathy.Once they have survived and are fully recovered they are our best resource person’s in the community to educate others on the pandemic.

Stigmatizing against Covid-19 survivors is not the way to go. We should rather support and welcome them back into the society for such a heroic fight.

We must all reach out to help society understand that covid 19 or persons who physically challenged are humans and what has happened to them can happen to anyone. If we welcome them with empathy, it will prevent social stigma and discrimination which will help them get the help they need.

Covid-19 Survivors should be seen as warriors who have fought the virus and come out successfully. There is no need to place a sign of shame on them. There is nothing shameful about falling sick.
