The planet is paralyzed. What seemed a few months ago, a health problem in a remote Chinese city turned into an unprecedented health crisis that has the world on edge.
Covid-19 is a virus that worries people about its rapid contagion, and that still has no treatment. It forced all countries to react quickly to prevent the situation from escalating and stop a great tragedy.
In a few weeks, significant consequences have shown: isolated countries, thousands of events suspended on all continents, and the media filled with a single theme, the new coronavirus. After all, as Heba Noureldine, a home cleaning specialist with CleaningCompany, points out, demands of the cleaning companies for disinfection services increases rapidly.
How Covid-19 Effects Our Life
The coronavirus pandemic is a global health crisis and a persistent economic tragedy in everyday life. It also makes it a special event, says Jeffrey Cole, a research professor at the University of Southern California: “We are involved in the biggest social science experiment of all time, without preparation or authorization.”
The consequences of immediate suspensions, terminations and concerted policy effort to eliminate COVID-19 continue even after the danger of the virus disappears. Last month, the Center unveiled the Coronavirus Disruption Initiative, a study of a representative of the Interactive Advertising Bureau, a network of participating advertising, marketing and development firms.
Along with the Interactive Advertising Bureau, a group of international advertising, communications and development firms, the Center unveiled last month the Coronavirus Disruption Project. It works by completing a poll on how people deal with the dizzying shifts that the pandemic has triggered, which featured a representative audience.
The results suggest that many of the ways we react to the presence of coronavirus. The findings of the analysis and the expert reviews draw at least 5 areas in which the effect of the disease is likely to stay in our personal, social and cultural lives permanently.
#1 Remotely employed
Immediately, the epidemic introduced millions of remote employees, and evidence from the Coronavirus Disruption Project indicate that all of these citizens enjoy it. 42% of surveyed people claimed that their encounter gave them the drive to operate more from home. 61% of them said they loved clothing and caring more informally, had more autonomy, did not have to go to work, and 7% said they appreciated clothing and cared more informally.
Approximately three-quarters of the Corporate Finance officials surveyed by Gartner at the end of March indicated that their businesses intend to do telecommunications. At least 5% of the permanent employees do it indefinitely to minimize the risk after the virus outbreak.
#2 Online Health Care Services
A survey conducted last year at the University of Michigan, a national study of healthy (co-sponsored by AARP), showed that only 4% of people over 50 had been practically visited in the last year. Nearly half of them didn’t even realize that they had video appointments with their psychiatrist.
Doctors and patients who, previously, may not have used telehealth in specific conditions, including sickness during a trip or daily interaction during operation, can recognize that a wider variety of facilities given online. In addition to avoiding issues such as parking and sitting, video meetings make it possible for family members to access resources doctors have for them.
#3 Shopping Online For Your Daily Food
It would be no surprise why. In the aftermath of the coronavirus-related emergencies, the internet shops and the home distribution of food have increased. In March 2020, a survey conducted by RBC Capital Markets with more than 1,500 consumers, 55% of digitally purchased food was compared to 36% in a similar study at the end of 2018.
#4 Keep In Touch With Zoom
Join your friends over Zoom to have a drink. Join your friends and watch live movies on Facebook. Virtual visits to loved ones.
One of the main findings of the Coronavirus Disruption Project is that although the pandemic has brought our social lives to the internet, people have reported that it has not affected the relationship with their families, friends and colleagues.
It doesn’t mean that we’re not going to have a drink with friends again. However, “the whole concept of how we interact, our socialization, has changed a lot,” says Cole, especially for so many older people who are also taking video calls.
#5 The Use Of The Mask
Wearing face masks to stop contagion has long been common in many Asian countries and some Asian-American communities. However, it is something a-must protocol whenever you go out.
