My Pandemic Experience​

​​One of the harshest things in the Covid 19 pandemic fo me was not being able to see my friends. When school and sports shut down I was bummed, because those were the two events I saw my friends at the most. When the pandemic was really bad I could only see my friends on Zoom. Once school opened again my family got Covid. That meant I had to stay home from my friends and they also had to quarantine, because they were around me.

​I have learned a lot from Covid for example, I know what it feels like to have a pandemic going through the world. I also know that scientists have learned a lot as well.
