Being kept locked inside at home isn’t a fun thing for sure, especially for us young minds that wander all the time. But such is the circumstance that we all are facing and it is only right that a situation this grave be handled with equally extreme measures. To be honest, I think majority of the student body went through a certain sense of elation as the exams were cancelled. I remember rejoicing with my friends but reality dawned very quickly.
COVID-19 virus, also known as the Novel Coronavirus is a pandemic, meaning it affects an extremely high proportion of the population occurring over a wide geographical area. Nearly 80000 lives have been lost and 1.5 million people (and still ticking) have been infected. The entire humanity is affected with fear and uncertainty. The counter measures that are taken to combat this situation like social distancing, national lockdown, etc., though seem unprecedented, are certainly showing certain positive effects that are proving to be silver learnings to this enormous black cloud.
