COVID-19 created havoc across the globe as more than 3, 29,500 people have lost their lives so far. There was a time few days back when more than half of the population was under lockdown. Who could have imagined that a time will come when we will be stuck in our homes for more than 2 months? But the novel coronavirus made it happen. Billions were compelled to work from home. Millions lost their jobs including the migrant workers in India. But after 4 months of coronavirus attack, we the humans have made COVID-19 preventative measures a part of our lives. The definition of normal has changed and we have started living with the new normal. Today, we will take a look at 7 pictures from across the world that shows the new normal amid COVID-19.
