The COVID-19 pandemic brought so much change to people’s lives this year. Who would have thought that this situation will be everyone’s new normal? Imagine how people brought their safety standards to such high levels keeping in mind these safety measures in their day-to-day routine – maintaining physical distancing with friends, wearing of face masks and face shields, having alcohol cleansers as an everyday scent, limiting gatherings and other celebrations, and being apart from people we endear so much. A lot really has happened in just a single year. 

Despite all these, people are still trying to maintain a positive attitude to make life at a very difficult situation more bearable.
