Today, the whole world talks about coronavirus pandemic that has affected over 510 thousand people and claimed over 28 thousand lives worldwide.
We need to remain focused, self-motivated, creative, calm and positive (not leaving the house for now). This is challenging times where many people cannot earn money yet pay high bills, rent, debts or mortgage. Please do not give up.
