What Coronavirus Or Covid-19 did to our lives?

Officially announce as pandemic

While world media has been discussing the spread of Coronavirus or Covid-19 since January 2020, most people initially dismissed it as just a minor issue. Something that will happen with time, and "unquestionably not a disease I’ll encounter in my corner of the world”. It wasn’t until recently that more individuals have been blowing a gasket over it. On Wednesday, March 11, 2020, Covid-19 was formally pronounced a pandemic. This is the word given to a disease epidemic that has spread across the globe, instead of a particular locale.

Learning institutions have closed temporarily, putting students out of school. This includes both colleges and universities as well as grade schools. Back when I was a kid, the idea of school shutting down was a dream. But not being able to go outside and see friends? A nightmare!

Economies suffering

With leaders calling a state of emergency within their jurisdictions, many stores and restaurants have been closed, causing some businesses to close their doors. Not only are world economies suffering as a result, but people have retreated inside, turning their homes into temporary anti-Corona fortresses. Yes, governments across the globe have ordered their citizens to stay in doors to prevent further spreading.

Quarantine and isolation

To be clear, there is a difference between quarantine and isolation. With isolation, those with a contagious disease are separated from those who are well. But with quarantine, people who have simply been exposed to the disease are separated, with their movement restricted. The purpose is to make sure the disease won’t spread if it turns out they are in fact sick.

Grocery stores being rammed

As a result of the madness, people have stocked up on supplies. Some are anticipating being indoors for months. The scramble for essentials has resulted in grocery stores being rammed. Every basic food item you can think of is flying off the shelves. Not to mention toilet paper disappearing in an instant.
