The world has witnessed the massive impact of this deadly Corona Virus or Covid-19. It has put to pause even the busiest streets of the world. It has changed the dynamics of the city that never sleeps. It has already changed our lives and will continue to do so.
At present, nations around the globe are still struggling in finding the cure. But what is clear and doable is finding ways on how to contain it. There are countries which are gaining more successes and are about to rebound while there are those which are still baffled and lost. Taiwan is one of the few countries which was able to control the widespread of the virus. While, Vietnam now eases their community quarantine protocols and schools might return to operation by end of April or first week of May.
Scientists and environmentalists claim that this is the Earth's way of recuperating, healing and fixing what has been damaged by humans for many centuries. But, whether this is true or not, as an individual, we have to reflect on how to adapt and move forward.
