As we talked about in an earlier post, we stated that domestic violence was becoming a pandemic within a pandemic. Sadly abusive relationships got worse by not letting the victims leave their abusers because of Covid. Due to COVID, many plans or opportunities were put on hold. Victims lives are being treated horribly in their homes without seeing a way out. Hopefully the vaccine can be the light at the end of the tunnel and start making the world turn again and move forward.
I hope the victims can see it as well. As well as for COVID to pass quickly so the women, children, and men as well can move forward with their lives to stop the abusive cycle they live in. There started a rise in child abuse cases and they ended up related to Covid-19. I think many of us would agree that movement restrictions are unwanted. Many domestic abuse victims em weren’t fully considered. Movement restrictions were implemented to stop the spread of coronavirus but it might of made violence in homes more frequent and more dangerous. Like I said before what we could be doing to help this is by wearing our masks, taking the vaccine, and taking nutrition fortifying everyone’s health. We can all work together to help others suffering, by doing what’s right and stopping the spread of the virus and reaching out to domestic abuse victims and letting them know they’re not alone.
