Coronavirus is declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO), and so far the number of positive cases registered worldwide stand at 697,244, while the death toll has reached to 33,257. After China, Italy, the USA and Iran have been majorly affected by this pandemic. When it comes to India, the cases in India are on a rise too. India has so far registered over 1200 positive cases and to combat this PM Narendra Modi announced a 21-day lockdown across the country. It means that all of us are now in self-quarantine. 


Self-quarantining is stressful, but it has also given us some time to learn something new, focus on our physical and mental health and to slow down in life for a while.
