On the Eve of 2020 I was discovered!
In Wuhan, China I was revealed!
An enemy of the respiratory tract I am named!
Difficulty in breathing I initiate!
The human sense of taste I numb!
Sneezing, coughing, weakness and fever are my flags!
Via Contacts with droplets I spread!
In crowded places, I am powerful!
Like a wild fire I Spread!
In people who do not show my flags, I am an unexposed secret yet to be revealed!
In people who are exposed to me without quarantine, I am a time bomb yet to explode!
I have stormed the world’s economy with uncertainties!
I have shaken the health sector with disease burden!
I have taken many sources of livelihood leaving families in hunger!
I have severed social ties as recreation centres become a dread!
I have overwhelmed the education sector as classrooms remain closed!
I have initiated travel policies hard to chew as vacation trips become but mere wishes!
Against social class, I do not discriminate as I hit all and sundry alike!
I have claimed over 400,000 lives across the world!
On frequently washed hands I cannot live!
In masked faces I cannot spread!
In the presence of a sanitizer I am helpless!
In the face of a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technique and an Antibody test, I am revealed!
To take prompt medical action is to trap me!
To adhere to public health policies is to cripple me!
I have made victims!
I have made survivors!
I am defeatable!
I am tamable!
I am domitable
I am just a virus!
I am just a disease!
I am Coronavirus!
I am COVID-19!
