“This COVID-19 pandemic has affected the people in my household differently either in my household or people I know. It affected people either positively or negatively for example some have been set back, like business people who sell things like clothes. The positive effect is that it gave us time to think about ourselves and get more knowledge than we had. It made many people stay at home and get time to think about themselves. I can say that those who didn’t waste that time have gained something good which will be productive for them. It hasn’t negatively affected my family’s income because it remained the same. I managed to do something that gives me money. We got time to think about ourselves and gain knowledge that we didn’t have before. I got time to think and do new things that provide income to me, my family and my country in general.”
