    The Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the way we live, with many of us enduring prolonged periods in isolation while others have to work against the clock on the frontline. Not easy as it may sound, we all need to adapt to get through this tough time. Although the pandemic has brought us unexpected and difficulties, every cloud has a silver lining. We all hope that the pandemic will soon be over and we will get back to our “normal life”, but are our lives still the same as before?
