Ask the Readers: What Lessons Have You Learned From This Pandemic?

We have been in this pandemic for a few months now. Needless to say, this is an unprecedented situation for most – if not all – of us. This is a difficult time, but I believe it’s also a good opportunity to learn a lot. As I’ve written a while back, this is a good time to reinvent ourselves.

So here is my question to you:

What lessons have you learned from this pandemic?

    I’ve learned to be very very patient and to pray constantly during this pandemic.

    One has to look inward and practice patience. Another learning is to utilize the time productively by networking online and be in touch by calling to build relationships. Work on a vision and keep taking baby steps to reach next higher platform to gradually achieve your goals.

    I have learnt that, we, in Africa, needs to make concerted effort in building our healthcare facilities for the days like this.
    Going abroad for medical attention would not work if the world can be shut down as a result Covid 19.

    I have learned that nobody knows how best to deal with calamities like the current pandemics (Covid-19). Therefore contextual solutions based on our situations need to be developed locally. Copy and pasting solutions from other context might end up being a total disaster and unmanageable.

  6. Buggest lesson I have learnt is that what can be done tomorrow, must be done today. As it is said “kal kare so aaj kar, aaj kare so ab; pal mein parlay hogi, bahuri karega kab!”

      right. Like Bill Gate said, this pandemic was long due. But we were not prepared.


    I have learnt what is FEAR. How to respect FEAR for our wellbeing. I almost lead a life which I didn’t live in the past of my life. I say ONE SHOULD HAVE HEALTHY RESPECT TOWARDS FEAR OF OUR NATURE.

    While our thoughts are clouded with fear about the uncertainty brought in by the pandemic there is a positive underlying change that is happening around us. I personally believe the Covid-19 pandemic is an opportunity for us to evaluate and be more than willing to make amends and restore what’s lost.
