The Covid 19 virus has been with us for 2 years now. Most of us have even accepted that it's our new normal.
What is Covid?
Coronavirus (COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 Virus. Most people who fall sick
only experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment.
I have no idea what this means really, and am sure am not the only one confused. The corona virus may just be one o f the deadliest, and most confusing virus we've ever come across.

Travelling these days requires more than just your passport, and the usual documentation. Some countries require that you be vaccinated to travel to them. Fortunately for you my antivax friend, there are some countries that still welcome unvaccinated travelers.
