Taking the current situation of the world into consideration, I’m sure I don’t need to give an introduction about what the COVID-19 is. The whole world’s under a lock-down, businesses don’t seem to be having the most profitable days, travelling’s being banned, schools are shutting down, people are getting sick, there have been a lot of deaths and just chaos, chaos, chaos and more chaos.

Now there’s one side of the population that’s as paranoid as can be, where people fear that the world’s coming to an end and that the foreseeable future isn’t getting any better, while there’s a smaller side of the population that’s somehow able to see the light in such a grim situation; let’s look into that. Obviously, those who’re still coming to terms with believing in the existence of this virus are simply a lost cause and discussing about that bizarre percentage of the population is just going to result in incredulity and fury.
- For the introverts stuck in their shells, this lock-down simply means not having to socialize, which, for a person who resents socializing, wouldn’t really be a problem, right?
- Social-distancing also means getting time to yourself; so I guess you can finally wash that pile of clothes that you’ve hidden somewhere or do some self-reflecting.
- For those who despise school, being forced to stay out of school couldn’t possibly be considered a punishment.
- For the May/June 2020 CIE (Cambridge International Examinations) candidates (and I’m over the moon for this point), the exams have been postponed. Can you believe it? Just yesterday, I had been throwing a huge tantrum about how there was no time left for studying. Honestly, this is just a miracle.
- For the hygiene freaks, surprise, we’re in the year 2020 and everyone’s sending each other reminders to wash their hands constantly and to drown everything they touch in Dettol.
- I guess, starting from now, people will actually think about what goes into their mouths, so the uncommon common sense in the human race may just start becoming more common.
Well, what do you think? Is the Corona Virus a blessing or a curse, and why?
Obviously, this discussion is just for the sake of making light on our current, dark situation. The Corona Virus is not something that should be taken as a joke because it has lead to a lot of deaths and severely damaging consequences. However, it is alright to look at a situation with a more optimistic attitude as long as you’re not endangering yourselves or others.
