According to Dr Manish Jain, Consultant, Psychiatry, BLK Super Speciality Hospital, There is so much panic because people apprehend the worst-case scenario.
"They need to understand facts and clear myths related to COVID-19. More they'll be aware of facts, less there will be panic," said Jain.
The need of the hour is altruism and social responsibility.
"Don't hoard excessive supplies, support others in times of distress, maintain hygiene practices and observe physical distancing, not just for your own safety but that of others as well," Jain told IANS.
With the rising incidence of Covid-19 in the country, it's natural for people to be concerned about their own health and safety as well as of their loved ones.
Till the time you are home, do indoor productive and pleasurable activities such as reading, learn something new such as guitar, socialise with family -- while safety and cleanliness on top of your mind.
