The 2020 Covid-19 Outbreak

Roberto Mendez, Writer

This has got to have been one of the most eventful years of my life, and not in a good way. It’s been kind of scary watching the numbers of virus victims rise tremendously and not knowing what might happen next. This virus has taken quite the toll on a lot of people, both infected and not infected, as it has caused protest, racial hate against Asians, and global panic. Action has been taken to try and slow the spread of Covid-19, as governors have endorsed people to “Self-isolate” themselves from others and have closed down many stores in response to that. It is now required that everyone wear a face mask when going out to public areas where there are a lot of people, such as the grocery store. Restaurants have also been affected by this, but mainly dine in restaurants. If you want some food from one of your favorite places, then you either have to make an order for pick up or delivery. Honestly, there really isn’t much that I expect people to learn from any of my entries, but perhaps some entertainment ideas that most people would have already thought up and maybe a bit more insight on some of the ways this virus has affected our normal way of living. I almost forgot to mention that schools have been closed all around the country, which has changed the way we had to finish off the school year, so instead of waking up early in the morning and attending school from 8 am to 3:18 pm, we have been doing our school work from home using google classroom on our devices, and for those who don’t have a device, the school would lend a chromebook to those who need it. That’s pretty much all that I can think of writing at this point, so hopefully, this has given some insight on what life is like during an event like this and how we had to adapt.
