A: There are no simple answers. Corona Virus has changed the world. No one can give you an answer about something that has never happened before. You have an extraordinary ability...according to your visa. Use It.

I am not trying to upset you, but this is an opportunity for you to shine. Look at all the people that had their opportunities cut out from under them, put came back hard to make the world a better place.
