Taste: How COVID-19 Changed Me

When I first heard of corona, it was on the lunch table. I was having just another lunch with my family when my dad mentioned it arriving to Guiana Inglesa, a country near to my town.

My dad said something about Chinese, Corona and Guiana and I asked myself in silence: why are Chinese bringing beer to Lethem? Little did I know how my world and my life would be ravished by this virus.

I had no idea it would hit home so close. I still need time to process everything. My whole household has been infected by one of my grandpa’s caretaker – who, unfortunetely, didn’t survive the virus.

I might take some time till my next post, but rest assure, when it comes, it will be filled with the amazing transformations this moment has brought to me and my family.

See you soon!
