The Pact, by Maria Aulet

 

One day my grandmother told me a history about COVID-19. This was a virus that attacked the world in 2020. This was created by the Earth because humanity was destroying it, polluting it and killing its inoffensive animals. This coronavirus attacked as a silent war taking the most vulnerable people and, when it had already been across the world and the number of victims reached unthinkable levels, some heroes dressed in white colour ended it with a pact: the virus would disappear if humanity stopped destroying the Earth with giant steps day after day.
