  There are many families that are struggling and grieving under the current covid-19 Global pandemic. The pandemic has caused much psychological strain on both students and teachers. Mental health has become an  issue due to the devastation of the urgent covid-19 pandemic. It is being asked that any financial aid which may have been affected do to these uncertain circumstance contributed directly to the covid-19 pandemic be forgiven. The devastation of the current Global covid-19 pandemic has directly caused students to struggle in the academic standing/progress area. There should be relief for students who's finical aid have be affect during the period of the global covid-19 pandemic do to academic standing/progress. The effective dates being November 2019 - November 2022. There have been several studies conducted in effort to measure the affect of the global covid-19 pandemic on students,  "students and researchers were invited to answer an online google form questionnaire. A total of 1,392 participants were from 92 different countries answered the questionnaire with response rate of 94.1%. The data showed that COVID-19 pandemic lockdown affected the academic performance of most participants (96.7%) with varying degrees. The mean evaluation score for the online education in general was 5.1 ± 2.4 while that for the practical parts was 3.6 ± 2.6. Although online education provides an opportunity for self-study, the main challenge that online education faces in veterinary medical science is how to give practical lessons. Since most of the subjects are practical; therefore, it is not easy to learn it online." ( Mahdy, 2020 ), There has been a conclusion drawn by this social experiment, A total of 1,479 responses were retrieved of which 87 responses were excluded due to mismatched data. The remaining 1,392 responses were from 92 different countries with an overall response rate of 94.1% (Table 1). Of the 1,392 participants, 674 (48.4%) were males, and 718 (51.6%) were females (Table 2). The age of participants ranged from 18 to 52 years (mean ± SD = 24.10 ± 5.93 years). About 52.7% of the participants were aged 18–22 years, 38.5% were aged 23–32 years, 5.7% were aged 33–42 years, and 3.1% were aged 43–52 years (Figure 1A). The majority of the participants (80.7%, n = 1,122) were undergraduate students while postgraduate students comprised about 19.3% (n = 270). About 55.7% (n = 775) of the participants were residents in a city while 44.3% (n = 617) the participants were residents in rural areas (Table 2)." ( Mahdy, 2020 ). The emotional and mental stress thus far sadly is just the tip of the ice berg, the post-traumatic stress will surpass the present an cause further hardship through 2022. The lose of life is overwhelming and we all lost someone or know someone who has lost someone. Students  will be affected more in the near future. The absents of ken, next-of ken, mother , father, and child events such as family gatherings birthdays, holidays, and just daily activities. The lose of life is not ever easy and it has been happening at an alarming rate as a direct result of the covid-19 pandemic. Post-traumatic stress as a direct result of the covid-19 pandemic,  "Based on responses to the surveys, all participants are at an 80% chance of a major health breakdown in the next two years. They also scored high in compassion fatigue and secondary traumatic stress." ( 2020 Study ).
