Post ProofreadingI am Nisha Ganatra from India and want to learn English. One of my friends advised me to write something and get it reviewed. However, I don’t have anyone to review my writing. Therefore, I decided to write online. 
Let’s start with something good to write. You can also suggest and I will write about it as well. Besides, it will improve my English especially my writing skills.
Ok, what do I write about?
Although lots of things are coming into my mind, let’s start with my likes and dislikes. First of all, I like drinking tea, not coffee. Besides, I am not friendly so I don’t talk much.

Because even the insufficient data shows the death rate and the number of new cases is increasing. Plus, the actual number of cases and deaths is expected to be a lot higher than reported. Only a few countries applied smart lockdowns and that too after witnessing the peak. Given that, the government should uphold the lockdown until any pattern appears and increase relief services targeting the most vulnerable people. Besides, it is near-impossible to know if any area is low-risk without con…
