More than 48,000 deaths have been caused by Covid-19. Across the whole world, countries are taking the precautions and working together to stop the spread. Most countries are doing a shelter-in-place, or quarantining people. Where I live, we are in a shelter-in-place. We cannot drive anywhere unless we are getting food. In this blog, I will talk about some positives and negatives while being quarantined. I’ll start with the positives.
Some positives for being quarantined are spending time with my family. Lately, we have been playing a lot of games, doing adventures like sleeping outside in a tent, and taking tons of walks and picnics. I have also been given some freedoms because my parents have to work almost all day. Personally, sometimes spending too much time with my family can get a little boring. So, during the day, I can play some basketball outside, or reading a book. Another positive is that I have been able to communicate with my friends very well, and I have been able to still do school. And, I have been taking bike rides a lot and spending a lot of time outside.
Some negatives about this virus is that I cant see any of my friends in person, and I haven’t gotten the chance to go to a park, as parks around me have been closed. I also think that I won’t be going back to school as a sixth grader, which is kind of sad, because I have had amazing teachers who have helped me through challenging things, and they have been able to help me with challenging things like online classes.
Even though this is a hard situation that nobody has been through, countries are working hard to keep us safe and stopping the spread. Thanks for reading another blog! Stay safe and healthy :)!
