Contracting COVID-19 in 2020 was very relevant to what is most important in many people’s lives. You hear about COVID-19 every time you turn on the television or read any news article online. It seemed like a very scary thing and almost shameful to talk about. I wanted to show people the average people who are taking precautions can still contract COVID-19 and getting tested is not as scary as you might think.
I wanted my audience to learn that average people who are being very careful can still contract the Covid-19 virus. Our family survived and I wanted others to know what we went through. Our personal thoughts and feelings might help someone if they should be in a similar situation.
