The Impact of Covid-19 on Students
The coronavirus outbreak has spread to almost every country in the world. Its spread has caused national economies and businesses to calculate the costs, as governments attempt to implement additional lockdown measures to combat the virus’s transmission. This virus has not only harmed our physical health by causing dangerous symptoms like headaches and high fevers, but it has also harmed the psychological health of children and the elderly. Many people have died as a result of the illness, and many more are still infected and on the verge of death.
Millions of children miss school every day as a result of emergencies and ongoing humanitarian crises. The COVID-19 outbreak has exacerbated the plight of students in countries affected by or emerging from, conflict and disaster. Education is a fundamental entitlement for children, youth, and adults in emergencies, and it must be prioritized from the start of any and all disaster operations. Students are unable to focus on their studies, online classes are confusing for many, and some students do not have the financial means to purchase laptop computers or internet access in order to participate in the class. Students aren’t getting the attention they used to in on-campus classes, which has led to a drop in academic performance for many. The most significant impact is caused by the manner in which the exams are administered; false markings, late submission due to a lack of internet, and misplaced exams are just a few of the many reasons.
The frustration that one student feels from being confined at home all day, not being able to go out and play football or simply hang out with friends, cannot be expressed in words. This indicates that even if one does not have the virus, he might be impacted during the pandemic. Many studies have indicated that anxiety and sadness are common, with women being more impacted. They’ve also seen a disrupted sleeping pattern, which correlates with both anxiety and sadness. In addition to the eating problems that many people have experienced, being bothered by the fact that they have nothing to do today tends to make them desire more food. Staying away from friends physically and only communicating with them over the internet has harmed more people than anybody can think, and this may cause damage even after the epidemic has finished since it will be tough for them to adjust to this new situation.
