It’s been a year to when the first official case of the novel coronavirus was diagnosed in Pakistan and to be very honest, life hasn’t been the same for anyone since then.
The pandemic hit us all in different ways, some lost their jobs, some lost their loved ones and some were barely surviving. A Twitter user shared the date when the first case was confirmed and asked people what they were doing last year on this day:
