Coronavirus Chronicles

published by Devon Furbush

Right now, Daegu is being hit hard by the Coronavirus. Stores are closing, thousands of people aren’t able to go to school, public activities and festivals have been either canceled or postponed. However, despite everything, there are still those who continue to work and go along with their daily lives. This post is to highlight the positive side of these grim times.
