At this panic-stricken hour when the whole world is indulged in the trauma inflicted by the pandemic, everyone including the watchman-next-door has by now, told you their own versions of COVID-19 advice. Next, you scroll down your social media feed for some more validations and get more confused with the clutter of do and don’ts, shared by almost every second person on your feed. And, the news of death tolls reaching sky have now made you lose hope while you sit restlessly inside the four walls of your house waiting for all of it to end. We hope it ends too.


On a lighter note, if you live in Bangladesh, by the time you are reading this you are already done checking up on your hobbies, watching people making a new tick-tock video, obsessing over a new song or even discussing how on earth a random person dancing at midnight could unite the nation together. And, if you are on the nerdy side and a bit too bored you might as well have finished all those programming language and digital marketing courses and are also done boasting about them on social media (pun intended).


So, now that you have already done a PhD on boredom, how about you get yourself COVID-19 Safety Certified and get the actual advice you need from the real experts all around the world.
