2020: The Pandemic

Category: Local, News, World | | Brett Buchanan

Before 2020 even had a chance to start, the world learned of a new bug. The so called novel corona-virus. Although, it's not the first time we've seen this virus, it is the first time we've seen this specific strain. Corona Virus is actually several different things wrapped up in a little package, all of them affecting roughly the same area of the body.

Wait, I did say we've seen it before. It's other strains are known as SARS and MERS. Both affecting breathing and the lungs. So, with this new strain dubbed Covid-19, just like it's family, it too affects the lungs.

The lungs allow us to breath. But when we breathe out, we are breathing out this virus. This allows it to transfer to others rapidly. And as we've seen of 2020, this virus can become out of control.

With that said, I would like to take a moment to say: Be safe. Be smart. Protect yourselves.

With that in mind, this year, I have avoided, for the most part, going out into the world to take photographs. I've done my part to stay safe and stay away from being another statistic.
