The current pandemic has been quite stressful for everyone, and what adds to this stress is the uncertainty of when everything back to normal. This uncertainty stems from the fact that there is no known cure for the Novel Coronavirus.
What makes it worse is how quickly the virus spreads. Scientists all over the world and the World Health Organization have been working on a way to defeat the virus, and one of the strongest contenders is a vaccine.
But creating a vaccine is difficult, and time-consuming, not to mention, extremely expensive. As the world is slowly slipping into an economic recession, governments have been facing even more constraints in their budgets, but there have been many individuals and organizations that have stepped up in this time of duress.
The world’s billionaires have come together to fight CoVid-19 and Jack Dorsey topped the list with a whopping billion-dollar donation for CoVid-19 causes.
Many large organizations have also made sizeable donations to various causes aiding in eliminating the pandemic.
But the lockdown has had a negative effect on small-scale charities that relied on local donations. One of the main reasons is due to the lack of face-to-face interactions, and more and more jobless and needy people coming forward.
Hopefully there will be a positive shift as some countries ease lockdowns and cases go down.
