All over the world, the coronavirus outbreak has created so much problems. The World Health Organization (WHO) already declared COVID-19 as pandemic which means it already has spread over several countries and affecting a large mass of people. One of the negative effects of this pandemic is the suffering of businesses which led to more and more people working and staying at home. Be it a lockdown or community quarantine, the interaction and gathering of people are highly discouraged. Since more people are no longer going out, establishments and businesses are forced to close since they are continuously losing a lot of customers. Another problem with most of us as this pandemic COVID-19 continues to rise is that a lot of us have more time on our hands. With this, we don’t know what to do since we think we are paralyzed inside our own homes. That’s why in this article, we will be tackling about the art of socializing during coronavirus outbreak.
