“The hardest thing for me in coping with COVID-19 since it started is that jobs stopped. A person lost her source of income but as the days passed we understood that the reason for closing jobs is not that they hate us but it is so that they reduce the chances of contracting Coronavirus or spreading it. What helped me to cope with it is that I listened to news and I listened to the reasons why they reinforced the measures which is because they wanted the disease stops spreading among the people. That is what helped me because I listened to the news and learned the reason why some things were stopped. What makes me hopeful is that people agree with the measures and understand that Coronavirus is a bad disease which kills and the numbers are reducing. That gives me hope that we will go back to normal life like before.”
