Our familiar world that had always been so vast and boundless was reduced to the size of the palms of our hands. We watched in awe, shock, and horror as the COVID-19 virus spread its deadly cells from China to the rest of the world, invading even remote villages and secluded countrysides.

The vaccine is finally here, but will it be enough? And these are their stories.
