The pandemic started when I was in grade 3. I heard the new say:
“There is a new virus that was spreading more than SARS”.
At first, I didn’t care and I then just continued to go on my normal life which was just school, hockey and watching TV.
Well, I was wrong about the news. All of a sudden, The deaths rose and the cases flew. At that time, the government said that we had to wear masks and keep 6 feet apart! Eventually, there were lockdowns and I couldn’t see my friends at all which made me bored to death! To make things worse, the government closed all community centres. That made me cry and feel lonely because that meant that I couldn’t play hockey. A few weeks later, we started virtual learning which made me bored. A month later, we were back in class.
Even though I was exhausted from all the twists and turns, I still had hope that we were getting back to normal. The news said that the vaccines finally came. Eventually, we defeated covid-19. Both cases and deaths have dropped.
I am grateful for the pandemic because it has forced my family and I to spend more time together.
