The coronavirus outbreak is a testing period for the entire world. While so many people are dying from the disease, there are also so many skilled heroes that are going out there to fight the major crisis. They are going out and exposing themselves to the virus so that we can stay at home and contribute by maintaining social distancing and self-quarantine. The least we can do for them is not come out and appreciate them in whatever ways we can. On March 26 the U.K. residents got together to clap for the NHS (National Health Service) at 8 p.m. from their homes, gardens, and balconies while maintaining social distancing. The royal family did their bit too. The official Twitter handle of Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) released a video of the youngest royals who clapped in appreciation for the COVID-19 heroes.
