The positives of COVID19

A lot has been said about the pain and troubles COVID19 has caused worldwide. No doubt its a natural calamity for everyone and nobody alive has seen anything like this before but I will be talking about all the good things that are caused by this pandemic and how it has effected everything around us in a positive way.

There are several Positive effects of COVID19. Some of them are as obvious as the sunshine in the morning but some of them we have still not noticed though we are living through them day in day out. So let’s try to list down these benefits, positive changes, good learning or positive vibes that have entered our lives and environment around us due to COVID19. I don’t think this list is in any particular order.

Please feel free to to suggest anything I’ve missed.
