The COVID 19 virus has made life difficult for people in the United States, as well as the entire world. As history has shown, people can become different in times of despair, possibly becoming ‘worse’ people as their morals change. Although there are many bad choices made during times of crisis, there are also many good people who make good choices, as people and corporations have been doing what they can to help others.
51 year old Andre Anglin is a busdriver from Columbus, Ohio. Before becoming a busdriver in Columbus, Mr.Anglin was in the military and took part in the Gulf War. Ever since the epidemic in America broke out, even after the social distancing was implemented, Anglin continued to drive his bus all over the city. He understood that people who rode his bus were going to the grocery store, work, or to see their loved ones. Ever since leaving the military, his sense of honor still remained greatly intact, which is why when he transports people during the COVID 19 infection, people were still protected. He modified his bus to where people aren’t bunched up, and he also sanitizes everything.
Many corporations are helping with COVID 19 relief such as, Global Giving. Since the epidemic started, Global Giving has pledged to raise an estimated 5 million dollars to provide hospitals and all the doctors in communities in need. They would help to provide necessary supplies, such as ventilators and masks. The money would also go to prevention efforts once the epidemic has died off, making sure it does return.
Although there are many government and civil employees and organizations that are helping out during the dark times of the COVID-19 virus, it is also the everyday person throughout the world that are the heroes as well. This means that every single person that is following safety guidelines and proper safety procedures, are doing their part as well to make sure the people around them have a reduced risk of catching the virus. Also, the ones who have donated their money and time to various organizations and charities that are helping people during COVID are also considered as heroes.
