Give your story a title.

Where did it come from?

What sort of object is this: text story, photograph, video, audio interview, screenshot, drawing, meme, etc.?

Where the Coronavirus came from my point of view.

Tell us a story; share your experience. Describe what the object or story you've uploaded says about the pandemic, and/or why what you've submitted is important to you.

It is my understanding that the COVID19/Coronavirus originated from Wuhan, China. Since the Chinese government delayed communicating to other countries about the Virus it was able to spread throughout the states at a rapid pace. The Virus can only spread if it has a host, when people would travel internationally at the time, they didn't know how bad the virus really was. People have a lot of theories as to where the virus came from but this is my point of view.

Use one-word hashtags (separated by commas) to describe your story. For example: Where did it originate? How does this object make you feel? How does this object relate to the pandemic?
