When Covid 19 hit USA in march2020. The biggest impact me and my family faced was income. both me and my were working before the pandemic but the places where we worked closed resulting us being unemployed. We tried to file unemployment so that we could have some sort of income but our applications were not accepted by the system for a long period of time. In just a few weeks all our savings were almost finished and it was a very stressful period for both me and my father. we were forced to find something to work even though covid cases were still surging at that particular time. working under such conditions was very hard and stressful but, luckily things got better with time and our situation got much better with passage of time.
