From South Korea to Hong Kong… As it’s not easy to find a job in South Korea during this pandemic, I decided to come back to Hong Kong in late March. Airlines were still flying, but only around two direct flights per week, and the price doubled.
As we arrived in Hong Kong, we had to put on a belt, allowing the government to track us during the quarantine. Unlike in South Korea, on my way from the airport to home, I saw that everyone was wearing a mask. Everyone!
Being an independent journalist, I am fortunate, or maybe unfortunate, enough to witness this pandemic so closely. To file my reports on an everyday basis, I have to leave home with a mask and a pair of gloves. I reach out to people, health care professionals, administrators, and police officers for their feedback on this grim situation.
As you may know, India’s Coronavirus graph is also on the ascending side…
My name is Vanshika, and I live in the Allgäu. Like a lot of other people around the world, the town where I live has been affected by the Coronavirus. This is my side of the story.
The waves of the COVID-19 pandemic haven’t left a single person untouched. During this global crisis, I doubt there’s anyone around who cannot empathize with the other seven billion people on this planet. Our circumstances may differ, but our concerns are the same, as are our hesitations. Living in the Bavarian countryside, I have had my share of experiences and worries.
‘It’s The End Of The World As We Know It, And I (Don’t) Feel Fine’
by Alessia, from Italy
In my dreams, I usually visit foreign lands, embark on great adventures, or sometimes meet my favorite celebrities. They’re good times where I can escape reality for a few hours.
Last night, I dreamt that I was walking through the empty aisles of a supermarket. The only moment I felt happy was when I realized the shelves weren’t bare, and everything I needed to survive was on sale…
Can you imagine what it would be like to be a young girl from Hong Kong, staying in South Korea during the Coronavirus crisis? Josette takes you into her world through her account of Coronavirus in South Korea. She expected to study, work, and learn more about the country’s culture. But instead, most of her time is spent inside and practicing social distancing. Read on to hear about her journey, and how South Korea is keeping its residents updated every time a new case emerges.
This story really hits home personally. It’s by a young writer/student named Soha Sherwani. Her family moved from the US to France about a year ago. So, she’s able to compare the way that each country has been handling the lockdown and Coronavirus crisis. Soha shares some interesting stories about airplanes looking for social distancing violators, and a cautionary tale about food delivery protection.
It’s probably on your mind…
Where do you buy face masks during the Coronavirus Crisis?
If you’re like me, you’re probably somewhat confused about the whole protective mask issue during this Coronvirus Crisis. The entire thing has been fuzzy. But we’ve got to figure it out, as it appears that masks could soon be required and part of our lives for a long time to come.
Masks are a bit like toilet paper, though. Where do you buy them? They’re not on the shelves, and there are few online outlets. Is there some secret, hidden location that’s filled to the brim with face masks, toilet paper, and paper towels?
So, I’ve been doing some research and wanted to share my findings to, hopefully, save you some time.
The news from all around the world is telling us how lethal this virus is, with people from all countries taking precautions. Every person knows the measures we have to take and how important it is to do as much as possible to help each other. And of course, here in Mexico, we’re not the exception.
In the beginning, the only thing that changed was that the schools closed. Even when we heard a lot of information and news about it, we didn’t take it seriously. Almost everyone continued their normal activities as it was.
Hi, my name is Svante, and I live in Sweden. In this post, I will write about the way that the Corona pandemic has affected me personally. I’m also touching on how it has changed my family and Sweden as a whole.
As a lot of you readers probably already know Sweden has had a bit of a different response to the Corona pandemic which has sparked international controversy.
Living in Canada in the time of the Coronavirus… Right now, I feel like I’m living in some sort of bad movie. I’m sure many other people are feeling the same. It’s like we just woke up one day and everything in the world has changed. Suddenly nothing is certain anymore. And the scariest part? In the midst of it all, I have a newborn baby.
I am Chijioke Chukwuekem, a Pharmacist practicing in Nigeria. I work at an out-patient clinic where we handle mostly geriatric patients with non-communicable diseases like hypertension and diabetes. Life was going on normally until around the first week of March 2020 when my country recorded its first case of COVID-19, and since then, the number of cases has been on the increase.
Hello there, my name is Rob, and I reside in a town called Stafford in England. I am a postman by trade, and like everybody else, at the moment, I’m living in a world dominated by COVID-19 or Coronavirus as everybody seems to know it as these days.
In the UK, as we speak, we are approaching (hopefully) the peak of the pandemic, but things have changed dramatically from the way we were living even just four weeks ago.
Chaos, a word I knew the literal meaning of but never knew it could become an entity in existence. I live in Lahore, the heart of Pakistan, as they say, and enjoy a somewhat privileged life, but the piece is not about me, it’s about life that is suffering, and I get to see that every day when I look outside my window.
