For more than a year, we all have been united in fighting this pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic, which hit us in March of 2020, reached the whole world by mid-2020 and put it in lockdown. Leave traveling, even going out of the house was not allowed. Things began to look grim for everyone, but finally, after months of locking ourselves in our houses, it does seem like normalcy is gradually returning.
