COVID-19 Outbreak Changed The Way We Think; How?.

COVID-19 outbreak has changed the world in a way that no man-made or natural catastrophe has done in years. A global pandemic, which transforms the lives of people by the blink of an eye, it has made us rethink and redefine a number of aspects, including our outlook on life. 

How Safe Are We?

For the longest time, we thought that safety is something that can be obtained by some weaponry. We thought that it is the only thing that can defend us, mostly because we're a country that was battered by thirty years of civil war. But, COVID-19 has helped us identify who the real enemy is.

We might have a whole collection of deadly military weaponry that can wipe out whole populations within a few seconds, but even they're vulnerable towards Coronavirus. It clearly shows us that no threat is bigger or riskier than the threat to health.

Social Distancing, But Together

Humans always form social groups, behave and move with them. There's nothing stronger than a team or a well-united nation; that's what we were taught growing up. However, COVID-19 outbreak added a whole new depth to this idea.

Sticking together as a team, or a nation isn't about being physically close with each other so you can share everything. In this pandemic, if you're considerate about one another and want to look out for one another, you absolutely must maintain your distance among you and other people.

Physical closeness isn't the only thing that brings people together; it's also how much you care about each other, in a manner that you're willing to limit your freedom to stop this epidemic from spreading further.

The Real Heroes

"Real heroes don't wear capes. Real superheroes wear uniforms and badges and stethoscopes."

Nothing sounds so real than this quote by Dean Cain. Thanks to the immense efforts by every single person who are involved in medical and military authorities, Sri Lanka is fighting off COVID-19 as we speak, while the politicians who promised to bring you sun and moon are nowhere to be found.

You're a hero too, if you can do your social responsibility by staying at home, and going out only if it's absolutely necessary. 

Human; The Big Bad Dominator

Humans think that they're dominators of the world; animals and nature are subordinates to them. But in this epidemic, we realised how fragile people are in comparison to nature. It showed us that no matter how much you fight for lands and borders, nature can keep people locked up in the same way that we lock away animals. 

Is Life As Complicated As We Thought?

We live in a time that money is valued above everything, to the point we forget that we need to have a life to live with the money we make. Coronavirus has been snatching the lives of hundreds and thousands of people by the passing second, and it has made us realise how precious life is.

Even spending with family and friends has never seemed important before this outbreak hit the world. We've been crushing our minds over certain things that we believe we cannot live without, but this pandemic is a powerful and solemn reminder that nothing in life is forever. Which is why every passing moment should be cherished and loved.
