Two powerful photos recently surfaced online and they reminded people of how our lives have really changed since the coronavirus pandemic.

In the pictures, a family could not hold hands but looked at each other through a glass-sealed window as a man with the Twitter handle @briannalhaynes held up his baby cousin towards his grandparents.

The coronavirus pandemic has overturned human lives and made humans restrategise the way they live. If there was ever anything people thought could not be done in a new way or postponed, the pandemic changed all of that.

"Could have let them in. If you know they don’t have it. It should be fine. Governments are just trying to scare civilians. Yet they invite their families for holidays and sh*it. They don’t care for us. Just enjoy the time with your families. Not many have long left."

"Jesus just put on a mask and let them in."

"Hardest part of this year is accepting that this is how my baby had to meet some of his closest family and that I can never change that."
