    Effect of Covid-19 on our Education………By Ryhaan Ali Shah


    From the time immemorial, human being on the earth encountered many disasters such as floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruption, and pandemics. The disasters have been catastrophic for men. The history of pandemics diseases is as old as the human history. Some pandemic diseases are here: The First Plague, Black Dead, Tuberculosis (TB),Plague Of Justinian and the newly spread pandemic  known as COVID 19.(COVID 19 stands for Corona Virus Disease 2019). Some of the pandemic diseases were so horrible that they completely ruined many of the cities.

    COVID-19 was started from the city of Wuhan in China as the first case was reported on December 31, 2019. Within months it affected all the major cities of the world including Europe, America, Asia and Africa. In Pakistan the first patient was tested positive on 26th Feb 2020. Since then we are in trouble.

    Covid-19 pandemic has long lasting effects on our society as it has changed the meaning of life. Every sphere of our life has been badly suffered in the hand of the disease. It’s effects on economic activities, education and on the people psychology is many fold.  Education has been effected by COVID 19.


    Just with the first corona case in our country in February last year our government imposed country wide lock down as a preventive measures. Schools were closed down with all other activities of life. Prolonged vacations were started on 3rd March 2020 and today 23rd May 2021. Effect of the Covid on education is multifold. Our Education is so suffered that we were studying at home but the environment of school was not at home. I never saw such vacation in all my life. We were given home work by School. I am studying in Aga Khan High School Booni. We are thankful to our teachers that they gave us home work as assessed them. But the students in other schools are so suffered they have almost forgotten wat they are supposed to study. Although we got home works but we never got the environment of school at home.


    The College going students were having online classes but because of Internet issue they also don’t got their classes some time. Our exams were cancelled and many of the students undergo psychological stress. This year I was supposed to be in grade 7th but because of exams cancellation I’m still in grade 6th. It’s not the government’s fault but it is all our fault because we don’t follow the SOPs which the government gives to follow. If we want that our Education doesn’t suffer we should follow the SOPs. That’s why I request you to follow the SOPs.

    I suggest the following measure to be taken by the students to be taken during the pandemic.


    1. Follow the SOPs set by the government.
    2. Study whatever has been assigned by the school.
    3. This is the period when we have plenty of time. We can utilize this time to create something, explore the places unknown to us, study extra materials such as magazines, newspapers, story books etc.

    Believe me that we can overcome the losses we have during this time. If we waste this time it cannot be compensated. My advice to my friend is that Time is money and don’t waste it.

    At last I would say that COVID 19 is not so easy going as you think. If we will not follow the SOPs our Education will suffer for all. My purpose for writing this essay was to guide you people to follow the SOPs.
