Tell us more about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected you or your family. For me, the COVID-19 crisis has merely inconvenienced me but to many people whom I know, every day is crisis concerning health, work and constant survival. Many of my friends and relatives have on-going health conditions and shaky finances and work situations. Some are ghastly afraid for a parent or sickly family member catching this disease because some idiot won’t use basic personal protection or those in power will not invoke necessary emergency powers to curb the pandemic. Those in power have other priorities than the most urgent- public health.

What do you need to stay healthy and take care of yourself or your family during this pandemic? Following the basic rules: wear face covering, maintain social distancing while avoiding large crowds and keep hands clean.
