Why Corona is Spreading – Let’s Look at the root cause using Toyota’s “5 Why” method?

Root cause Analysis -Using ” 5 Why Method”

Why Corona is Spreading?

Toyota’s “ 5 why method “ was conceptualized to find root cause of problem and nonconformity that industry faces, I found this approach of root cause analysis has a wider application when we seek answers or the root cause/s to many problems .Let’s see how we can apply this to find –Why is Corona Spreading so rapidly?

Q1: Why Corona is Spreading?

A1: Because people already effected (knowingly or unknowingly) are going out in public breaching Medical/Legal Advisories and infecting people who are also going out ignoring the likelihood of Contamination.

Needed Action: Stop People Going out by Health awareness Campaign , bringing and enforcing  law

  • Govt of India enforced 21 days Lock down followed by Janta Curfew to break the chain taking risk of serious financial repercussion
  • Govt of Kuwait enforced Curfew from 5 PM to 5 Am and also closed Non-essential Govt sectors
  • Many organization introduced online  and remote work
  • Many countries introduced restricted work. staggered working time, interpersonal gap enforcement

Q2: Why People are violating warning to go out?

A2: Scenario: 1- People going to places of worship in large Number violating interpersonal distance

Example: Religious congregation in  Delhi, India  by a Group of Believers  of certain faith endangering their own

life and spreading across 14 states potentially contaminating hundreds of thousands of people on their way by

breaking interpersonal distance and Govt warning. There were people even from several countries joining the

congregation. Believers feel they will offend God without going to the places of worship and miss the opportunity

to go to heaven.There is a psychological trauma of confronting lifelong established belief system

Q3: Why do they feel so?

A3: Religious preaching – Indoctrination from very childhood and enforcement that becomes belief, blind faith, habit and then culture that becomes a psychological trauma and ingrained fear in mind which becomes nearly impossible to overcome. One would go crazy as this is something against the core belief that programmed the mind to think and work in certain way, Therefore, people ignore threat of their life and others and rush to places of worship

We got the answer in 3rd Question-in the  3rd Why itself!

Correction:

  1. Communicate with the stake holders e.g religious leaders, politicians and believers.
  2. Give people right knowledge and pragmatic interpretation of religious books and belief  that God is everywhere , when there is a life threatening crisis, prayers can be offered from any place , going to place of worship is a ritual and matter of convenience.
  3. Immediate directive on closure of all places of worship.
  4. Enforcement to prevent violation

Some of the examples:

  • Govt of India stopped Navratri Celebration and mass gathering in Temples, and Gurdwaras.
  • Govt of Kuwait has enforced this, closed the mosques and advised the believers to pray from home.
  • Govt of Saudi Arabia closed Umrah, a religious pilgrimage for Muslims during troubled time
  • Many other Govt enforced isolation measures including China, USA

Corrective Action:

  1. Preachers and Religious Leaders, Dharma gurus must become responsible that average people due to their faith and belief system trust whatever they are told to believe. Deceiving them with blind faith and misguiding that threatens their life and the near and dear ones, family, neighbors, fellow citizens and the nation, must be punished for misguiding them with wrong teaching and preaching.
  1. Persons should open their mind and then think rationally. Be spiritually strong rather than becoming blind to religious faith that can endanger own life and life of others. There is a need to believe that “This life is real and most precious, regardless of whether there is another rebirth or permanent heaven or a hell fire . Next life in hell or heaven or a rebirth comes from a particular  belief system. No one has seen what is there in heaven  or Swarg that is not there in this planet earth. I have no comments in any of the belief system however there is a problem when for a Rebirth or Moksha, heaven or hell, we start taking risk this precious life and life of others,  directly or indirectly
  2. Inter religious dialogue, may be introduced  from school curriculum to instill true faith faith in humanity, love for people, your own life , We may disagree but be matured and sensible enough to accept another views- achieve a state of  true balance of Intelligence Quotient, Spiritual Quotient and Emotional Quotients.
  3. From Childhood and primary schools , or secondary schools , we should be given an exposure to the world and this planet earth-beauty of our  mother earth, most beautiful places on earth that we should  dream to see before we go to the next life-once we see these broad view of the world , we start loving ourselves , others,  the heaven starts descending to this very earth. Life becomes so precious-so beautiful -so meaningful that no one would like to risk it. This will be a behavioral change for anything we do-the way we think.
  4. Our belief tells us that God created this planet, this Galaxy-this Bramhand as is said in India,  so be it-we will appreciate how beautifully he has crafted it-how beautifully he has created us, so much beauty around- so much so see and experience- we would realize this life is not meant to be risked in the dram of a next life in heaven or Moksha!

Let us live and let other live-love people-the world is beautiful-only we might have missed to see this! Or someone made us blind that we can’t see this and see what they want us to see.

 

Q2: Why People are violating warning to go out?

A2: Scenario: 2 – Migrant workers in a threat of  uncertain future and desperation t meet their family started walking back home , risking their life and potential threat of country wide contamination violating interpersonal distance

Example: Religious congregation in  Delhi, India  by a Group of Believers  of certain faith endangering their own

life and spreading across 14 states potentially contaminating hundreds of thousands of people on their way by

breaking interpersonal distance and Govt warning. There were people even from several countries joining the

congregation. Believers feel they will offend God without going to the places of worship and miss the opportunity

to go to heaven.There is a psychological trauma of confronting lifelong established belief system
