COVID-19 has come a long way. From the beginning, to present day.

COVID… the disease that has haunted the world since December 12, 2019. This all started in China. Right now, doctors and scientists have controlled the pandemic a little bit by creating the COVID-19 vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccine is very effective by helping your body get antibodies against COVID, and if you do get COVID-19, it won’t effect as compared to not having the vaccine. But enough about the vaccine, I’m here to talk abut how COVID-19 is coming back stronger, and worse then when we met face to face for the first time. Also about the origin and ways to protect yourself.

Origin of COVID

COVID-19 has been one of our biggest problems since December 12, 2019. According to webnd.com, SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) originates from bats. Since then, COVID has been spreading and infecting humans all around the world for a long time now! Also according to webmd.com, “Scientists first identified a human coronavirus in 1965. It caused a common cold. Later that decade, researchers found a group of similar human and animal viruses and named them after their crown-like appearance.” Since 1965, the Coronavirus have been watching us, observing us, and learning the weaknesses of the human body. Since the beginning of this pandemic, we’ve been having people go into hospitals, and some of them, not returning home with their families, and right now, people are going into hospitals and mostly all of them aren’t coming back home. According to The New York Times, there have been 7.32M cases in the United Sates, and there have also been 78,325 deaths, and we can “thank” COVID for these deaths and cases. Since 2019, COVID-19 has evolved to become stronger and more deadly than every before. Coronavirus is a really really deadly disease, and anyone can get it really easily. According to yalemedicine.org, “By breathing in air when close to an infected person who is exhaling small droplets and particles that contain the virus; Having these droplets and particles land on the eyes, nose, or mouth: Or touching the eyes, nose, and mouth with hands that have the virus on them.” So, according to yalemedicine.org, Coronavirus is easily spread through coughs and sneezes and right now, it’s really important to always have your mask on you.

How to keep safe from COVID-19

According to cdc.gov, “To help prevent the spread of COVID-19:
Wear a mask to protect yourself and others and stop the spread of COVID-19, stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from others who don’t live with you, avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces.

The more people you are in contact with, the more likely you are to be exposed to COVID-19.

Get a COVID-19 vaccine when it’s available to you, clean your hands often, either with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, avoid close contact with people who are sick, cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash, clean frequently touched objects and surfaces daily.

If someone is sick or has tested positive for COVID-19, disinfect frequently touched surfaces, and monitor your health daily.” And for more information to keep you safe, visit cdc.gov.

COVID-19 is taking over along with its new variant, but I’m not talking about the “brother” of COVID because this is COVID’s “little story” of its revenge on humans. It is very important that we take care of ourselves and each other.

COVID has effected many lives since the beginning of the pandemic. We aren’t the only people that are getting affected. Around the whole world, people are trying to fight for their survival because it turns out that the studies shows that the majority of the population that are hospitalized with COVID are people that haven’t accepted the vaccine into their bodies.

COVID isn’t just affecting certain people, COVID is affecting everyone! Grownups, children, babies, and old people are getting infected everyday. We need to make sure that we take precautions because this pandemic isn’t playing around with the human race. According to bbc.com, “Every time the coronavirus passes from person to person it picks up tiny changes to its genetic code, but scientists are starting to notice patterns in how the virus is mutating.” COVID is changing every time someone gets the virus, it evolves and makes itself better and stronger.

Right now, we are fighting to make sure that everyone is safe and that we are taking the necessary precautions to stay safe. If we all work together, we can overthrow this virus from our personal life’s and from the life’s around the world, so we can come back together and do the things that we used to do from our past life’s before this pandemic has struck our world.
