I Hate COVID-19!

I first heard the name Coronavirus in March. Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory symptoms and recover without requiring special treatment. Corona came to Iran in January but it perhaps had arrived three months earlier.

We got married on 14 February 2020, before the official announcement of Corona’s arrival in Iran. It ruined all our post-wedding parties.

I hate Corona because it is very bad and inauspicious. It has also stopped the world. It has overshadowed everything daily habits, visiting, economy, etc.). Because of this, we have to wash our hands every day since the outbreak of this disease. I think I see my parents once a month. Many businesses have been damaged.

People think this virus is not real. When one of their relatives gets sick, they start taking it seriously. A few days ago, I was informed that my English teacher was also infected by the virus. She and her husband felt very ill and fatigued because of this disease. With good care, they were able to cope with the disease. I’m happy about that.
