Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, is the disease caused by the new coronavirus that appeared in December 2019, in China. The COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and in some severe cases it may also cause death. There is not a vaccine yet to cure this disease, but it is also spread from person to person. The COVID-19 became a pandemic when it spread from China, to many other states, including the U.S., this is the current situation we are all living in.

It is sad to say, but the virus has taken a big toll on all of our lives. Almost the whole world has gone into a panic because of the outbreak. Since there is no vaccine for the virus and can be transmitted very easily, many people are not allowed to leave their homes unless it is very urgent. This includes shutting down public events, stores, unless it is a grocery store or gas station, schools and many other places. Small businesses and restaurants are losing out on money if they are closed, and many people are out of work right now. It is unknown when the virus may be gone and when we will get things back to “normal.” There will not be the same “normal” we knew before the virus, but we will have to create a new “normal” and base our lives off of that.

When the virus is gone, we will no longer have to hunt for necessities in stores. Currently, stores are mainly out of toilet paper, water, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, and people have even resulted in using baby wipes as a substitute for toilet paper. The more selfish people become, the less supplies there are in stores for other people. As a society, we all need to work together and help one another. We should all do our part and stay at homes, unless it is urgent. The sooner we all self-quarantine, the sooner we can get back to work, school, going out and have our freedom back. If the people do not follow orders, it just makes things more difficult for everyone else if you are going out and risking catching the virus and spreading it to many others.

Not only has the virus taken away sporting events, concerts, festivals, and other fun events, but it has also taken away graduation from the class of 2020. As of right now, it is said that students may not be returning to school for the remainder of the year. It is undecided how the class of 2020 will have graduation, but it seems it may not be the regular walk on stage in front of family and friends type. As of now it seems we may graduate online or something and have our diploma mailed to us. I could think of a few ways we may graduate, but currently on stage is not one of them. That is what the virus has taken from me. It has taken the last few months of my senior year away, I should be in school right now learning, talking to my peers, listening to my teachers, hanging with my friends. Instead, I am at home, doing online assignments and as far away as possible from school. I feel as though my whole high school career has been thrown down the drain if I do not get to graduation on stage.

Overall, COVID-19 has affected everyone one way or another. It will continue to affect more people if everyone does not start to take quarantine seriously. We are told to stay at home for a reason, and it is not to confiscate our freedom, but to protect our freedom from being taken away more. The more cases there are of the virus, the more the government will take precautions and continue cancelling events and ordering every person to stay at home even longer. I do not like being at home all day, every day, and I am not too sure other people enjoy being stuck inside their homes either. We need to all work together to defeat the virus.
