Covid and future life of people is something that many of us wonder how is it going to turn out. These past two years of everyone’s lives have been not good, to say the least. No matter if you suffered from coronavirus or not, your life has been affected by it. Every person has felt the effects of the pandemic in one way or another in daily life. From being forced to wear masks, to whole companies closing and business falling to dust, it is all because of covid. In this article, we will see how the coronavirus can and has affected the future of everyday people.
To answer this question we used of the most famous forums in the world – Quora. Let’s see what people had to say on the subject.
M. Millpot said: “What’s this future you speak of…
I’m not sure how it affects my long-term future. I find it difficult to even see past a few days. I’m completely occupied with the daily news, and what might happen in the short term. I was thinking of shifting the type of products I might make, that a hyper-indoor market might have a use for. Like better communication tools, and collaborative applications in new ways…. I’m afraid that when this whole damn thing gets past us, all of this will evaporate and I might end up with products no one will care about anymore. Tough call.”
Here we can see how the pandemic affects negatively not only the physical but the psychological state of people. It is true that every day on the news they say only negative things and how many more people have died or been infected. It is difficult to think positively in a world that has pandemics and negativity.
Another person, B. Ozga said: “It will probably change the monetary future, but relatively briefly in the financial time scale. Other than that, I think I am one of those in the minority that thinks the outbreak won’t change the future. It’s sad, but once people can return to their normal routine, they will and miss the opportunity to make positive changes for themselves and the world. The problem is humanity,s selfishness, comfort in routine (the chance to return to routine post isolation will be a godsend to most), and overall shortsightedness.”
As we can see, there are people who think positively about the future life after covid.
K. Moore said: “Well, it certainly cleared my calendar for March and now April. Meetings, classes, events, and club meetings were all canceled. More time to work on the yard and vegetable garden prep. House cleaning, projects, and organization. Time to try new recipes.
As long as no one in the house gets sick, it will be a minor disruption.”
It is true that most live events have been canceled and everything is now moving into the online world. This gives more people access to a certain meeting or event that they wish to participate in, without risking their health. More and more people study or work from home because of the pandemic and it looks like this is starting to become the new normal.
All and all the future of life after covid is uncertain for everybody. One is certain that the world is changing and we are changing with it. We can only hope that things will turn out for the better.
