At a time like this when we are facing a life threatening pandemic globally, one is forced to have a reflection and reevaluate human existence in its entirety.

What has Corona Virus taught you since it broke out and is spreading like wildfire?

Hmm....strange how my perspective has changed in a few days. Had plans for what I intend to achieve each month of the year...as at today, I'm still trying to picture what the world will be like after this pandemic. Just living one day at a time. Life is truly fleeting and nothing worth dying for

The world is not ready for a crisis. UK is in fear , USA in fear, even Russia.

It is same here. I had worked from November till February for local sectors. And I decided to get my import business back on track, this thing just ruined it for me. My stuff are stuck out there.

I do not even know how we will overcome this as scientist are still fighting hard to come up with a solution. This thing will take months to be over... cry cry cry cry

That we're basically the same, black, white, Asian or Hispanic, we laugh the same, we cry the same and the same things makes us scared.

The life we are living is full of fallacy, covid19 was a wakeup call to the true reality, at the end of the day we have the same instincts, keep breathing and protecting our loved ones...

Perhaps the silver lining to these pandemic, is that our humanity is revived as a generation .

Exactly. This was my first observation. But when those from certain part of the world had a chance, they spearheaded racism but coronavirus has proven that we are one big family and feel same emotions just as the next race.

Most countries have never experienced this type of problem since world war 2. Russia is sending help via military intervention to Italy to help fight corona virus. Well, the world is technically at war with Covid.

Racism, is a hydra headed monster, to truly understand it, you have to take a prismal look of both victim and victimizer.... But you're right we could always do better...

I learnt that Nigerians are generally selfish. Here in Lagos they started raising the price of sanitizers and face mask.

Very selfish lot. Instead of helping to promote prevention and saving lives, they were putting money above life.
Every problem wrong with Nigeria isn't actually the leaders but the common man. Very selfish lot

Lesson learned is that things like Racism, war, prejudice, discrimination, arm race, religious bigotry, terrorism etc is semseless.
Now the human race is fighting a race for it's life. The world is now fighting a greater war with an unseen or invisible (with the naked eyes) enemy.
After this corona issue, hopefully the world becomes.more united than ever.

True. But the irony of it all is that after this, this guys will still return to their ways.

I've learnt that human beings are inherently selfish!
..and this is clearly evident in the "panic buying" exhibited by those hoarding foodstuff and toiletries in their homes, whilst leaving supermarkets empty so much that others cannot get basic necessities.

And you just realized today?

Everything touted to remotely aid in preventing and curing corona has gone up!

Lemons, lime, garlic, ginger, Agbalumo, cleaning agents, sanitizers, detergents etc. etc.

Even food is now expensive!

it is not new:

It is the same reason taxis would hike prices when they see passengers stranded; a mechanic would increase his charge when you car breaks down at an odd place etc.
