The novel coronavirus has claimed over 4,000 lives globally, so far, and it is only getting worse.
On a daily basis, we come across instances of shortage of face masks and hand sanitizers in the market. Unfortunately, many people, not caring about others, are hoarding masks and sanitizers, forgetting that other people need to be protected too in order to contain the virus outbreak.
We have now seen the bad and good side of many people during this difficult time that we are all going through.
