The world still waits for the time when we will be able to come out of their homes without fear, eat at their favorite place, watch a movie with popcorn, and live lives like before. But will everything will be the same as before after the pandemic? History suggests otherwise. The world changed after the Great Depression and the World Wars.
The world saw changing technology, growing infrastructures, and high scale development. The present situation is no different. The pandemic might lead to many changes in lives post-COVID-19. Here are a few areas which will not be the same after the pandemic.
Education has completely revamped than it was before. Brick and mortar institutions have shifted to online modes and the world is embracing its benefits. The adoption of online education whether it is using cloud classes or online learning courses has been one of the biggest positives from the pandemic. With the population understanding the benefits of this, it is sure that education won’t be the same as before.
Organizations that resented work from home culture are now embracing the step. Twitter has already announced work from home for life while several other IT firms aim to achieve 75% of total employees to undergo work from home by 2025. The service industry is now believed to undergo a huge transformation by giving work from home options. This step has turned out to be a huge cut in infrastructure and running costs.
The environment has seen the best of its days during the lockdown. The Ganges has never been this clean. Air Quality Index has gone down to 50 PPM. The ozone layer is starting to fill again. The lakes are clean, the water is pure. The complete ecosystem has been pushed to factory reset. The central government claims to use these metrics as the baseline for future references.
This shows that the government is very strict to make sure we don’t lose what we gained. It is our responsibility to continue taking care of our environment and making lives healthier.
