It’s been two and a half years since we came across the worst pandemic outbreak of the generation, Covid-19. This virus was first found in Wuhan, China then found its way to spread to every country and had a huge impact on everyone till now.
With almost every country supporting each other during this crisis, every country has been through a lot, both better and worse. But now that everyone has been vaccinated and due to proper precautions taken by the government and our people, we were able to cross the early and dangerous stage of the corona.
The impact of Corona can still be found among us in every aspect, such as psychological, mental, physical, economic, and more. The world, after two years, is traveling towards the safe zone, with some countries showing maximum declination, such as Turkmenistan, Niue, and other countries. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be a fourth wave. The Karnataka health minister declared that there might be a fourth wave as the impact of omicron XE has been drastically spreading around Delhi and Maharashtra and would stay that way until people are cautious of the effects.
