A side effect of trying to help (personally, for me) was a panicky feeling, sleeplessness and even headaches at the stress of finding leads, seeing the quantity of requests for help, worrying about everyone that requested and so on.

Where were beds available, where was testing being done, who can supply oxygen in these areas, and sadly, even how to arrange for the disposal of the dead body of an infected person. I started sharing all these information. I was surpris...
I consider social media as a literal life-saver during this trying times. People were forced to stand beside the affected from far away, and social media arose as the perfect solution to that. It took a pandemic to make the World realize that social media is not essentially bad, but how we choose...
