The coronavirus pandemic has had a substantial impact on all spheres of society. Therefore, it affected both the social, economic, and political aspects of people’s life. In particular, the influence of the pandemic and lockdown was felt by students of colleges and other educational institutions. With the spread of covid restrictions, many young people have lost the opportunity to thoroughly study and attend classes, communicate with friends and family, and earn money for a living. Thus, this work explores the hardships and problems that arose at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in the spring of 2020.
As part of this course, the article “Surviving coronavirus as a broken college student.” In this source, Sydney Goins talked about what she had to face when the disease arose and restrictions were imposed (Merchlinsky para. 4). As in the girl’s example, I also experienced the impact of the pandemic on people’s daily lives. Firstly, I began to experience financial difficulties since the place where I worked was closed indefinitely due to a large number of cases. Moreover, due to the transition to online training, I began to see fewer of my friends, which affected my mental health. This is due to the fact that I felt the need for social interaction and could not stay at home all the time. In addition, the constant news about the deaths of people seemed unbearable to me, as I felt a great sense of grief and fear.
In conclusion, it is worth emphasizing that the coronavirus pandemic has left a deep imprint on the life of every person. In addition, many people lost a loved one or an acquaintance, and some individuals had to cope with financial difficulties. However, it is essential to constantly believe that this will end soon and find alternative approaches to improve the state of life during a global pandemic.
