Introduction

Hello 👋 my beautiful people of the Urdu Community, i hope y'all had a wandeful weekend. We are already into week3 of the engagement challenge which I am happy to be dropping down my week3 day1 challenge in this community today. The contest is talking about about Steemit and COVID-19. Without wasting any time, my entry goes thus

Covid-19 was an epidemic. What would you say about it? Explain in your own words.

COVID-19, in other words, Coronavirus is a pandemic disease which is caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus. It escalated in 2019 in China and ever since, it has spread all over the world. It is spread in several ways such as

  • When people are in close contact and interacting together when they are not protected like wearing facemasks. If one person is infected, the other person will have very high chances of being infected because it spread very fast because it can spread from an infected person's mouth or nose at any instance if any liquid particle live the mouth or nose

  • You can be infected if you mistakenly touch any part of your face like mouth, nose or eyes after shaking hands with an infected person.

The outbreak of COVID-19 was first reported China in Wuhan town on 31/12/2019 and ever since then USA has registered the highest number of case with over 85.1M infected case and over 1M death cases. This is really terrible 😔. I think we all have to fight against this deadly disease by protecting our selfs all the time

The above image shows the general statistics worldwide showing the total number of infected and death case across different countries


In Cameroon, this deadly disease haven't affected us that much as compared to other countries because we registered only a total number of infected case which is over 120k and the total number of deaths cases are 193. The COVID-19 have mostly been affecting a majority of older people here in my country. I am glad that my government have fought the disease so much and we are now gradually seeing less cases everyday as compared to last time. I saw a recently statistics today which shows that we haven't registered any infected case last week which is a good news to us

What difficulties did you personally encounter during Covid-19?

This COVID-19 started like a joke because I couldn't believe it will ever reach Cameroon. I was a final year student in the University of Bamenda studying Mechanical Engineering, as days was passing by, studies became very difficult for us because classes where been suspended for some weeks and we did just online studies. We(I in particular) faced alot of problems at that time because most us had never attended online classes. So things were really tough that time in terms of studies for us and even our lectures

Another difficulties I encountered during COVID-19 outbreak in Cameroon was the use of facemask. I always fine it difficult in breading any time I wore it because it was my first time in my life to do such.

Me putting on facemask

There was a time the police control had to collect Money from me simply because I was not putting on a facemask which made me to be very angry because I didn't have any choice.

Another difficulties I face was the washing of hands with soap 🧼 and water then sanitizing it anyway you go, either in church, school, banks, meeting and Njangi houses. I am someone that hate to wash my hands without oiling it. So when ever I take my bath, I hate to touch water again. So this made life difficult for me

How Steemit blockchain helped you during Covid-19 ?

The major thing that steemit Blockchain have help me during this COVID-19 period is that it has made to to learn alot during this time most especially in the crypto academy as I was able to be participating in the academy back to back since season4 when I started participating in the crypto academy.

During this COVID-19 period, steemit Blockchain have been able to help me in learning many things such as reading, writing and creating quality contents. This is why I have been one of the the most active Steemian in my country Cameroon

Steemit have been able to help me during this COVID-19 period to take care of my self financially through the rewards I earned from this platform

How many people in your household were affected by Covid-19 disease and what was the condition?

Behold!! This is what I was furious about, because I prayed for the deadly viruses never to reach my household and behold, God answered my prayers and UpTo to today, we have never registered any COVID-19 case in my household.

We are taking good measures to prevent this virus at all cost so that it doesn't ever reach my household

How did Steemit keep you busy or rely on information when you were home locked during covid-19?

During lockdown of COVID-19, things became extremely very difficult for me because I couldn't longer visit my friends, I couldn't go to the market, church or field to play ball since there was a law passed by the government that they shouldn't be any social gathering again and people should be 1M apart when walking at the road side or talking.

They was no shake 🤝 of hands again, It was so boring because I could greet my friends only with my legs or we shake buttocks 🤣.

One of my best things in life is either watching football, playing it or listening to football ⚽⚽. So it was very hurrible that football was also suspended worldwide and even in my local quarta where I resides, football was also suspended. Can your imagine that 🤣🤣.

Now, the thing that steemit help me in keeping me busy and also giving me reliable information was that I spend all my time on the Blockchain all days and night and my boredom was reduced because I spend all days and nights reading a lot of information on people's articles which kept me happy and funky.

So it was difficult for me to over feel the boredom since I was entertained by the steemit Blockchain as I was constantly visiting it, chatting with friends via comments and replies which is what I am good at.

Did you sell steemit earing during covid-19 to reduce or eliminate the problems you face in your daily life?

YES YES and YES I sold some of my steemit earnings during that period because I faced alot of challenges. You know that when someone is Seating on one place, he will constantly be hungry and that's what happened to me. Seating at through out will require you to also be eating through out

So I had to withraw some of my STEEM earnings which I bought a lot of foodstuffs which I stocked all of them at home to be eating during the luckdown.

Did steemit help other people besides you in your country, city during covid-19 global epidemic?

YES

During the COVID-19 Period, I had to sell some of my STEEM earnings so that I could send the money to my precious grandma and my siblings in the village to also buy foodstuffs and stock at home since they are the people that gives me joy and the most important people in my life. So indeed, steemit also helped them alot

My friend with whom I was living with, steemit also helped him because he was benefiting from my earnings in Steemit

Again, I have alot of Steemit friends here in Bamenda such as @tenguhatanga, @monjuapollonia, and @echamroland whom steemit have helped them alot during this pandemic disease

Did You informed people about steemit during covid-19 so that they too can get out of trouble by joining steemit

YES

I did my best in informing alot people during the pandemic disease to join and I'm happy so many of them join, especially people like @tangwe-rene and @wyzcekunited who are extremely very active now. Others are active but not frequently and others are totally not longer active because of so many good reasons they have told me. However, they have promised me to be back soon as they are aspiring to come back stronger 💪

What difficulties ,major issues,did you face during Covid-19's terrible disease and how did Steemit improve,support and help in your life during Covid-19 and other people around your city or country. (write own experience) ?

Like I said, it was my final year in the University when COVID-19 breakout, it disturbed my studies so much that I didn't carried out my final year project very well. Since I was doing mechanical Engineering, my project topic was "Design and Realization Of A Column With Base Table Of A Bench Drilling Machine"

The highest people that faced difficulties during this pandemic disease where business men. We know that business men rely solely on their business before they can put food in their table. The situation was even worst for business people who did business in small scales. This made life difficult for them

My Final year project

As you can see, we where four of us that was working on this project. It was difficult realizing this project because of the COVID-19 outbreak as some Mechanical parts where not found Im mechanical workshops because they where finish and boarders whew blocked form some time. So this caused a delayance before we could finally realized this project.

Due to this, we thank God that the school authorities had to proponed our defense because we couldn't realize our project so soon and other groups couldn't do theirs as well.


Share your selfie holding the paper with the text I love you steemit for helping me during covid-19 and date The purpose of this selfie is that we can pay a great tribute to steemit for helping us during covid-19.

Conclusion

In conclusion, I am so happy for what steemit have done to me during this COVID-19 pandemic disease. I will forever be grateful to Steemit and I will live to be a Steemian all the days of my life because of the advantages and life time experience I have acquired in Steemit which is not just earning but also leaning

Thanks so much for your time everyone, I am inviting my fellow friends @tangwe-rene, @tenguhatanga, @wyzcekunited, @monjuapollonia, and @echamroland to come and participate in this amazing contest

Thank you for the invitation to partake in the contest. My entry is dropping soon

At times I wonder where this Corona virus dropped from. It had affected us in so many ways and we have lost a lot during this time that we can't regain again. But steemit kind of kept us busy and entertained us too. It has not really been easy during this time of COVID

Same as you I had to stay away from school for a year because of the pandemic, no social gathering and many others. I couldn't help it thank God steemit came

Covid has changed so many lives and is still changing some. Some for the good and others for the not so good.
I take my hat off for those who thrived!
How I wish I was active on Steemit right from the beginning of Covid 😊
Not only would it have kept me busy but I would have had a bit more Steem.
Good luck for the contest 🤞🏻

At least I'm glad you are not still late in your steeming journey here because you have already achieved so many things In this platform mom

Good morning! It's true, I am here now (•ิ‿•ิ)

You are highly welcome back

Ahahaha 🤣🤣, you said you find wearing of facemask difficult, but to me I think you should continue wearing it even now because it looks good on you.

Covid-19 disease really caused people of their freedom as school, market and offices were closed, movement were restricted during the lockdown while some people loses their job as well.

It's so nice of you sending money to your family and helping your friends during the pandemic period.

Thank you for sharing.

Ahahaha 🤣🤣, you said you find wearing of facemask difficult, but to me I think you should continue wearing it even now because it looks good on you.

Yes oooh mom, it was very difficult for me because it was as if I will suffocate inside 🤣🤣

Covid-19 disease really caused people of their freedom as school, market and offices were closed, movement were restricted during the lockdown while some people loses their job as well.

But still on still, man's still grinding till now.

I loved reading that so many prayers in your home the virus did not arrive, God is very great, the mask is one of the most difficult things, the confinement was fatal.

Thank you dear, I was really happy that no one was affected in my family because we constantly prayed and also took the measures in protecting ourselves

This is a testimony we both share. I did learn alot from the Crypto Academy and it was a great time. The COVID 19 as you have rightly said had very adverse effect on us all. I just thank God that your family members were not affected.

And I am also sorry about the difficulties you encountered with your project during this period. All happy it is quietly dying down especially in Africa.

Bro good luck in the contest.

Bro to be honest with you ehhhh, crypto academy still stands out as the best community I have achieved alot in this platform because I have a great knowledge in crypto right now and I am a successful crypto trader all thanks to the SCA

Do you know my joy in this things that happened during covid-19?
It is because we are alive to tell the story, what ever we lost or missed will surely come back to us if we don't give up.
It is good to read from you.

Is great that you have never had the virus, and that steemit was able to provide when you were needed, thanks for sharing your experience, my best regards

In Cameroon, this deadly disease haven't affected us that much as compared to other countries because we registered only a total number of infected case which is over 120k and the total number of deaths cases are 193.

Wow, I'm glad to hear that your country has not suffered so much from this virus. As we can see, other countries were more affected by the virus than your country. Because the death toll in your country is very low. You should thank God that He saved you from it.

Like I said, it was my final year in the University when COVID-19 breakout, it disturbed my studies so much that I didn't carried out my final year project very well.

I was very sad to hear this from you because I also could not read correctly in those days and I was not well prepared. The virus did a great deal of damage to our education.

In the end, I would like to share your grief. I am very upset to hear that your younger brother has had an accident. I pray to Allah Almighty to heal him soon.

I invite you to visit and read my blog. Thanks for this article.

Greetings 🇵🇰

The COVID-19 pandemic has really influenced our lives negatively but what matters is the way you handled it and took the bull by the horn and survived. It was not easy but we made it this far

USA has registered the highest number of case with over 85.1M infected case and over 1M death cases. This is really terrible 😔. I think we all have to fight against this deadly disease by protecting our selfs all the time

Actually I think this disease was specifically created for USA to wipe out the entire country. It's so sad to see the number of people who died during that period there. During that time my family and I fired prayers of protection for our family members there and fortunately they survived. God is great.

During lockdown of COVID-19, things became extremely very difficult for me because I couldn't longer visit my friends, I couldn't go to the market, church or field to play ball

I can imagine this feeling as it was the same for me. The thought of staying home was just so difficult and boring. It was during this period that most youngsters got involved in internet fraud as they couldn't entertain themselves with anything else.

Sorry about the delay for your studies and defense but thank God you finally succeeded. It has not been easy but we move

In fact during that Covid 19 there was a situation for which none of us were waiting and none of us were ready. Many lost their jobs, and so did I. But because of this steemit platform I have been able to make myself self-sufficient. Also this platform kept me busy too, I had a lot of work to do then.

I am glad to know that you had to pay the police for not wearing a mask and you were very angry for that. I'm glad to know that the steemit platform has helped you a lot.

During this COVID-19 period, steemit Blockchain have been able to help me in learning many things such as reading, writing and creating quality contents. This is why I have been one of the the most active Steemian in my country Cameroon
