Short-term stress has a potential effect to lead to either long-term growth and thriving or to a prolonged stress injury. Either outcome is dependent on the culture, the infrastructure, and actions of the people. The chief key to attain posttraumatic growth is resilience in an individual and in the organization.
According to World Health Organization, in their April 15, 2020, public statement, when the coronavirus pandemic, runs riot the human weakness within is to be avoided. This can be overcome by advising the public to follow a assiduous and conscientious lifestyle by adopting and patronizing a rigorous protocol of preventing large gatherings in prayers and social events; promote physical and social distancing, maintain hand hygiene, and respiratory etiquette; and maintain clean, sanitized environment by maintaining general hygiene and sanitation especially in places of public gatherings and personal use too ([Table 1] [Fig. 1]).
