PANDEMIC- A GLOBAL THOUGHT

PANDEMIC- A GLOBAL THOUGHT

The word pandemic refers to an outbreak of a disease prevalent over the whole country or the world. The year 2020 will be remembered by all throughout their lives because of COVID-19 (Corona virus), a global pandemic. Many people lost their lives due to this dangerous virus which was reportedly leaked from the Wuhan lab (China) in 2019.
On 24th March, 2020, the Indian government announced 21 days lock-down for the whole nation. CBSE remaining board exams got cancelled, schools, colleges, temples, mosques were closed. This was the time when people started to think on how to get benefitted from the technologies.
Then, that was when “WORK FROM HOME” was initiated. Firstly, it created a little chaos among the people, but gradually they got habituated. This epidemic made people understand that work can also be done by sitting far away from one country to another country. People don’t need to be present physically in that place, but instead, they can be far away and conduct important meetings virtually. This initiated virtual learning. Many companies came to know that they don’t need an actual place to have a company; instead, they can just have a company online where people can work from home. And also, people understood that they don’t need to pay a huge rent for living near their work place or even near educational institutions. Even many educational institutions started to offer courses online.
Pandemic occurred which was really devastating for the people who lost their loved ones, but this also taught people to spend time with their families, and also it made people realize how animals and birds feel when they are caged, after spending near about 6 months (and more to go) at home locked.
At last, people should stay safe at home, use a mask whenever they are out, sanitize their hands and also maintain physical distancing till the vaccine is out.
Thank you.
