Avaneesh – Lockdown

UK IN LOCKDOWN

AS YOU KNOW, THERE IS A PANDEMIC (THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK), AND THE UK IS IN LOCKDOWN. IN THIS BLOG I WILL BE BRIEFLY EXPLAINING WHAT COVID 19 IS, MY EXPERIENCE SO FAR, AND HOW I AM FEELING.

 

WHAT IS COVID 19?

IF YOU DID NOT KNOW, COVID 19 IS A TYPE OF CORONAVIRUS, ORIGINATING FROM WUHAN, CHINA. IT HAS SPREAD ACROSS THE WORLD, THEREFORE MANY COUNTRIES HAVE DECLARED LOCKDOWN TO CONTAIN THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS.

 

MY EXPERIENCE SO FAR

MORNINGS ARE QUITE SIMILAR TO BEFORE; THE MAIN DIFFERENCE IS NOT GOING TO SCHOOL. IT IS QUITE BORING AS I CAN NOT PLAY WITH MY FRIENDS. I CAN ONLY TALK TO THEM ONLINE AND WE HARDLY PLAY THE SAME GAME AT THE SAME TIME UNLESS WE ARRANGE IT, WHICH IS OCCASIONAL AND DOES NOT LAST LONG. AS THE SCHOOLS HAVE CLOSED (THEY ARE STILL OPEN FOR KEY WORKERS’ CHILDREN), THEY HAVE SENT LEARNING PACKS AND/OR ONLINE LESSONS. I FEEL THAT THE PACKS ARE STILL SIMILAR TO SCHOOL LESSONS, BUT A FEW LESSONS ARE A BIT SHORTER THAN YOU WOULD HAVE IN SCHOOL. EVEN THOUGH PEOPLE ARE WASHING THEIR HANDS THOROUGHLY AND MAINTAINING A 2 METRE GAP, IT CAN STILL BE DANGEROUS, SO ONLY MY DAD GOES OUT TO THE SHOPS, AND WEARS GLOVES AND A MASK WHEN DOING SO. TO EXERCISE, MY BROTHER AND I GO FOR SHORT WALKS AND BIKE RIDES WITH MY DAD, WHEN THE WEATHER IS RIGHT AND WE TAKE THE QUIETER ROUTES TO MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING.

SO I HOPE THAT THIS PANDEMIC COMES TO AN END, AND IF A SIMILAR EVENT OCCURS, THAT WE WILL BE MORE PREPARED. WE ALL HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER TO SURVIVE THIS OUTBREAK, SO PLEASE DO YOUR PART.
