I would like to talk about Corona Virus news which I stumbled on three days ago while I was reading a national newspaper. I have heard about the outbreak of this deadly virus in China but not as elaborate as I read in the paper.
Just like I usually do in my leisure time, reading news in our company’s library is one of my daily routines. It was my break-time on that fateful day when I came across the news that 1,560 people just died of the Covid-19 a day before that day in Italy. This alone rendered me weak for the rest of the day. I couldn’t even concentrate on my work again. I was forced to go on the internet to search for more information about the international epidemic where I got to know that most countries of the world had been on lockdown just to prevent the virus from spreading. Not only that, but I also studied that the European economy is in recession as a result of the lockdown.
Since that day, I turned myself into an ambassador of face mask usage and hand washing so as to prevent the spreading of this disease.
