Hello everyone, my name is Shahinur A., and I am from Manikganj, Bangladesh. I am a student and also work as a freelancer.

As a response to COVID-19 Bangladesh government has shutdown every academic institution. As a result, I am home and doing freelancing all day. I have been indoors for about one month and I don’t know how many days I have to be indoors due to COVID-19. I get up late in the morning and I go to sleep late at night. I work all day and play video games all night. That’s what I do now. I know that affects my health badly but there is nothing else to do.

But general people don’t seem to understand the importance of staying indoors. They often try to go outside and do different things. Our national forces try their best to keep people indoors. Now they are trying their maximum effort to keep us indoors.

The students are very happy about the suspension of classes till further notice. They don’t have to attend the classes. But they will also feel bored after a bit of time. Because staying home for a long time is not a good thing to do. My little sister is a student of class 5 and she doesn’t want to read after all. But now she is reading sometimes because of boredom. She often tells me that, “I am going to study because I am bored of doing the same thing for a long time.”

I am concluding my story by saying that if we want to be safe from the COVID-19 then we need to stay home and stay safe.
