History in the Making

Already well-known to the world, Coronavirus or COVID-19 has taken over our day to day lives and uprooted our society. There is not a single person that will go untouched from this virus once the dust settles, whether that means you personally got it, you know someone who got it or if your life was changed by it.
Making news starting in late November to early December, the Coronavirus rapidly spread from its origin country in China to the rest of the globe. Countries have cut off all interactions with one another in an attempt to control the impact and reduce the number infected. Economies have been displaced due to manufacturers having to close their doors until further notice. Hospitals are being flooded with the rapidly increasing cases of patients. Schools and workplaces have been shut down for the time being to keep people away from one another to slow the spread.
Our world has come to a halt. Millions of people are unemployed and struggle to find a way to adjust to their new life. Some do not even know from where their next meal is going to come, how they’re going to make their next rent payment, or how they’re going to make sure their child is receiving the education necessary.
With almost two million cases confirmed globally and no cure found, the only steps taking place to prevent the spread of virus is to wash our hands regularly, cover our mouth and nose when we are interacting with people, keep at least 6 feet away from everyone, and practice self isolation. It is advised that if we need to be outside it should be for necessities only.
As this has been already announced as a pandemic, we need to remember that we are all in the same situation. This is the time where we need to help each other out by staying away from one another until it is safe. Then we can begin to make sense of the madness and resume normalcy in our lives.
For now it is important for us to follow the guidelines given to us and do our part. The faster we do this, the faster we can level this virus.
