The World Will not Remain the same when this Pandemic is Over
A lot of us are tired of post concerning Covid-19, in fact, so many people are sick of the Covid-19 news and just wish all of this would pass but the truth is we are in this and we will have to live with it. We have been living with a lot of diseases, and viruses like Hepatitis, HIV and Aids, as well as other ones which we have not found cure to and yet we still stand strong and keep surviving. My condolences to everyone who lost a person or the other to this deadly virus, we hope a vaccine comes out soon. Interestingly, I have not seen anyone with this virus firsthand or even know of anyone indirectly who has this virus in my country, but the government tells us that the cases are increasing daily. One aspect I know the virus has affected a lot of us is business, socially, economically and in finance. I have been affected by this and I must say that a lot of people have been affected in this way as well.
What will be the real state of the world after the pandemic?
Let us be sincere, a lot of countries have started easing the lockdown and things are starting to get back to normal. Unlike in the past when companies were a large spaces and offices where many people get to transact daily but with the pandemic, a lot of people are turning to remote working and so many companies have reduced the number of people they allow into their facility.
The internet is going to be the next office hub, no doubt. I was talking to my fiancée’s brother to help out with an ecommerce website where I could move my business to and he saw reasons with me why I needed to scale the market using the internet as a tool. This is the same thing that will be happening in so many companies. Instead of going to the grocery, people will have to order for whatever they want from the comfort of their homes.
What will happen to businesses which cannot afford the technology or where contact is needed?
There are a lot of jobs which cannot go completely remote like pharmaceutical companies and hospitals, also there are a lot of businesses which cannot afford the technology being used. With this, a lot of things will have to tilt a little. Also, social distancing cannot continue to hold full time if schools will be opened fully. A lot of things will remain the same while so many things will change. The truth is, the internet will become the next business hub and ground for the next decade, thanks to the pandemic.
