“Living with COVID -19”
The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the lives of people in every corner of the globe. “It has become a reference point. Our lives have changed, turning everything we took for granted into necessity, and our necessities into a luxury.
A different world has dawned for all of us. We went through a global freeze. We lived with the insecurity of today and the uncertainty of tomorrow. Our present has changed and our future is unknown. An invisible wall has been put up between people’s relations. The smile, now an “endangered” gesture, is hidden behind a mask. This is “Life with COVID -19”.
How will “Life with COVID -19” be for each and every one, how important it is in our lives, in the lives of others and in society as w a whole? What changes has this unexpected, annoying and scary visitor brought to all of us? “Life with COVID -19”, is about how much it has affected each one of us personally, our society, our country, the whole planet.
