The world is facing fourth wave of COVID-19, which has caused due to variants. The Delta variant or B.1.617.2 also named as Indian variant was first detected in India and has spread to more than 60 countries. In the United Kingdom, it accounts for 60 per cent of coronavirus cases while it accounts for 6pc of infections in the US of sampled coronavirus cases.

India has recorded the world’s sharpest spike in coronavirus infections this month, where New Delhi and Mumbai ran out of hospital beds, oxygen and medicines.

Sindh Health Minister Dr Azra Pechuho has sounded alarm of fourth wave of Covid-19. If this happens, it will be more damaging for the people of the country, as during three wave we have lost many a things, economically, socially, educationally etc.

In Pakistan, COVID-19 upset everyone’s life, since its spread two years ago. Over all world faced difficult situations. Pandemic posed new challenges not only for the healthcare system, but economic, education, social and governance system also were challenged.

Developed nations took effective measure provided each facility to their people, made thing much convenient for public. Their education system just been up to date so that children not be deprived of the main factor – education of any country’s development.

Unfortunately, the scenario was totally different in our country. If we have a deep look on to the first two waves of COVID-19 we would come to know that we lost much more in this time duration of almost one and half year.

During all three waves we already physically, mentally, emotionally exhausted.

Firstly, unemployment which has impacted the youth who have passed out from different universities even before pandemic. The COVID-19 further deteriorated the job and opportunities situation.

Secondly, it pushed the education to a huge downfall, as the all educational institutions remained closed due to precautionary measures across the country.

Thirdly, lower class people living with just one time meal before Covid19 have also suffered because of not having proper earning as they all were making their own ways to bring something for their children and families.

During all three waves we already physically, mentally, emotionally exhausted.

Fourthly, people dwindled economically and socially.

Fifthly, young generation has made themselves addicted to different unhealthy activities which might have had harmful effects in future.

Sixthly, the suicidal attempts ratio increased in the time period of COVID19 as many young individuals had turned off the light of their lives. Because they did meet to the desired goals, wishes and making their future bright.

Lastly, a large number of people facing emotional disturbances due to day after fair of being celebrated the most awaited moments of their lives which will have yet to arrive to be memorized always.

How this all loss will be covered? There is a big question mark.

Youth across Pakistan, particularly in Sindh have been facing since last couple of years regarding our education system which cannot be taken lightly, as it had been observed with serious consideration on many major things is need. Strategies are to be worked accordingly as a developing country that can also play a very vital role in our nation’s progress as well as growth. Education awareness and mind-set are basic things which can uplift our new generation think brilliantly, work selflessly, and make them, their parents and country so proud.

We lost few good things in COVID19 and still there are few things that make us all compel to ponder over the 1st wave as it seemed bit fearful.

Observation and experience show that people were seen not worried during the 2nd and 3rd wave, as they were in 1st wave.

The reason which boggle minds that the same round game was following proper guidelines which were being imposed (still continues) by government. The vaccine has been made to stop the quick spread in entire world especially in 3rd wave.

As a whole COVID-19’s example has been taken for the people of this country to make them responsible of their cleanliness that they might have distinguished in previous decades particularly in Sindh.

COVID-19 has also provided time and space to those (young individuals) who were and are eager to make their hands meet. Setting a wonderful gesture by making the most of the days of COVID-19 in reading literature books, fiction books, auto biographies of well-known personalities of the world, story books, writing well drafted write-ups, exploring (on Internet) watching meaningful and lesson able movies and doing such other beneficial things that must reward them in their academic career as well as somewhere else on the connected lifelong learning and the term of the accompaniment for them all.

In a nut shell, we are looking forward to be back to the same routine work that we had been before COVID19 and are hoping that everything should work smoothly.

Not to forget the precautions to be followed as the disease has not diminished from our country and get vaccinated as soon as possible so that we can make our life better through fighting it properly.
