As we all know by now, the quarantine against COVID 19 is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, measures taken against any disease of all time. It has ruined productivity in schools workplaces, public areas, and more. It has killed 205,000 people worldwide and infected a confirmed 2.95 million at the time of the article being written. According to fortune.com, the coronavirus has caused the unemployment rate to soar to an estimated 20%. To put that into perspective, just one month ago, the March unemployment rate was 4.4%. There is not much news regarding a worldwide vaccine, which suggests that the quarantine measures may go on much longer than we all anticipated, and the public does not like that news.One major area that has been hit the hardest by COVID 19 is hospitals. Many hospitals are filled to the brim with coronavirus patients and as a result, several people had to die because there was no more space at the hospital. Everyone who works at a hospital is exposed to dangerous conditions, and are unhappy with the fact that either they are forced to work or that they are not being paid enough hazard pay. My sister and I saw this issue and decided that we can set up a fundraiser for our local hospital, Saint Peter's. We created a charity on www.justgiving.com, and over the course of about a week, we managed to raise $1,150. I attached a screenshot of the charity page and amount as proof, and I am glad to know that we made a contribution to all of the workers fighting against the coronavirus.
I would like to thank everyone who donated to the fundraiser and I hope that we made a dent that would help bring down COVID 19.
