COVID – an overview 

COVID – an overview 

By Sarah-Jane 

COVID-19 has been the most talked about subject on the news since March 2020 and since the first lockdown I think we all wanted it to go away.  

Unfortunately, when the COVID cases went down the occasional group of people somewhere in the world would have a party and things would start up again 

Then a few months of staying inside and online school later the Corona virus vaccine was made by a very smart group of scientists, so here we are having people getting the vaccine all over the world.  

Here in Orkney, we are very lucky to not have as many people as some places like London. Having fewer people and sea borders makes it easier to prevent infections from coming into the county, and it is easier to track and contain the virus when there have been cases.
