COVID 19 A GLOBAL LANGUAGE

COVID 19 is a global language that we had to learn within a short while. It's breeze brought disaster, death, financial crisis and many more, but come to think of it, it brought unity, because the whole world became united to fight a common enemy, there was no more bombing and fighting . Our common goal was to fight an invisible enemy that threatened human existence. People pool resources together to reach out to people, medically and otherwise,  the greatest sacrifice.

People put their lives on the line in other to help others.The health workers became our heroes on the battle ground.

The only good aspect of the COVID 19 is that most homes whose parents are career workers had to sit at home with families and there was bonding, the negative aspect of sitting down at home equally brought about increase in domestic violence for the troubled and possessed souls.

The biggest lesson of COVID 19 is that everyone needs to be prepared for uncertainty, not to be taken unawares.

If Covid-19 was a name I would call her/him Unity. First time in my life the word has one word on their Tounges.It was a very challenging time we learn all that we can share a disease we can all pray we can all go hungry.

My first HUGE challenges were WATER we don't have running water for Handwash.

Dear Katrina,
At the beginning most people were lost on how to go about it, the fear was crippling. The issue at people's mind as of then was most importantly food to eat since there was lock down and most people live on day to day earning for survival. so it was a tough time for most families.
The water issues was a secondary necessities. Most people were not maintaining the hygiene of washing hand regularly. Good spirited people were contributing food items to rural areas. Then some of the items given directly to the government were locked up in ware houses, they didn't distribute the palliatives to people but hoard it in a ware house for who knows why. With the #ENDSARS protest, the masses started locating the ware houses and loot the palliatives.
Food was the major challenge for most in my region.

Dearest Starsun,
Indeed, the world got united like never before and its still an ongoing, raging pandemic that's consumed millions of people across the world. India has the second largest numbers of Covid infected people and because our public health system was not at par with what is required to contain and treat a crisis of this scale, the threat is still looming large. Thank you for your hopeful post to remind us of our many blessings.
Warm regards,
Urmila Chanam
