And I would like to talk about international news these days flowing around the globe is about COVID-19 pandemic.

Initially, it was about the spread of the coronavirus in China, and it was beginning to spread to other countries.

This was followed by an increasing number of infections and people who suffered or died because of COVID.

Many countries across the world have imposed a ban on flights such as France, Australia even India has banned flights coming from UK. If talk about world almost two million people died due to COVID.

During the last quarter of 2020, the good news about the vaccine was heard, but people were not sure whether it would work or not.

In the first week of December, I heard from BBC news  that Covid vaccine is ready for use. It was a big relief for everyone, on that time my joy knew no bounds. And it was fantastic news for everyone can resume a normal life, go to work, and meet their friends and relatives. This news affects not only me but everyone around the globe. I hope soon this pandemic will over and everyone will relief from this painful time.
