2020 has been full of unexpected surprises like wildfires, airplane crashes in Iran and Pakistan, the death of basketball legend Kobe Bryant, social unrest over the killing of George Floyd, the deadly explosion in Beirut and various natural disasters. And then suddenly came a villain in our life named CORONA VIRUS or COVID-19. Life almost came to a standstill across the whole world; everything was shut down; there were no schools, offices, airports, business, malls, theaters and many more. So many rules and regulations were drafted and implemented by the government, which felt like we were kept in a prison. Wearing a mask on face, wearing plastic gloves, sanitizing ourselves at regular intervals etc. were so irritating that one felt suffocated. But as days passed it became a habit and now one feels awkward showing ones whole face because the mask has become a part of my attire.

Talking about the reason for all these things:     COVID-19 which is a hero and a villain in our life. First let me tell you about the indirect positive impact  of Covid-19 on nature.  For animals and nature it is a boon. Gradually nature began to heal itself, the ozone layer which was rapidly depleting started to heal, pollution which was previously increasing day by day with global warming also started to reduce.

Now the negative impact of COVID-19:

The first reason to hate is wearing masks, gloves, sanitizing and many more restrictions which restricts movement and seem to suffocate people. Travelling which was loved by most of the people was restricted. Going to malls, theatres, parks, water parks, school, office etc. was not allowed.

In conclusion though COVID-19 has much negativity but by seeing our health conditions and immunity, it is necessary to follow all the precautions and guidelines given by the government.
