THE WORLD AFTER COVID-19

THE WORLD AFTER COVID-19

cover storyAs the world tirelessly fights the rapid spread of the coronavirus, the lifestyles of many individuals are also shifting. With governments implementing strict measures, people are being confined to their homes, with their lifestyles significantly altered. As we continue to practice social distancing and remain at home, it鈥檚 undeniable that this radically alters what we鈥檙e used to and changes the way we think and work in our cities.

 

While that鈥檚 one change that鈥檚 happening, there are plenty of others happening across the world, from government to politics and more. With all that鈥檚 happening, it鈥檚 normal to think about what life may look like beyond the end of the pandemic.

 

How exactly will the world change after the COVID-19 crisis? Here are a few changes that may occur based on how things have progressed thus far.

While some countries have faced similar pandemics before, such as SARS, a vast majority have countries have yet to deal with a pandemic of this scale. Once this blows over, governments of all types are sure to implement emergency measures to better manage future crises. Some may even have to relinquish their power, depending on how well they manage this pandemic.

 

Individuals will look to leaders of their country to protect them, and states will look to reduce further vulnerabilities. In short, extra measures and plans will be put in place to ensure that governments are better equipped to handle any potential future pandemic.

FURTHER SHIFTS TO THE DIGITAL WORLD

 

With social distancing, many people have had to hop online. From working from home, to virtual schooling and even social gatherings, COVID-19 has swept away a lot of the artificial barriers that might have made any of the above difficult in the past. While not everything can be virtual, there鈥檒l definitely be a rise in both companies and schools integrating online options into their systems.

 

Education will most likely not be the same in the future. This period may demonstrate that online learning could be even better than physical learning. Schools may start to shift certain parts of their curriculum online, and teachers may start to give students online work instead of working face-to-face and using physical materials. With the shift to an online model, tuition fees for universities could also be significantly reduced as students will no longer have to reside in dormitories or utilise on-campus facilities.

 

On the business front, companies may start to allow individuals to sometimes work from home. Other than in school and work situations, digital shifts may also occur in various other forms, such as virtual museums, online fitness classes and even virtual concerts. Online shopping could also experience an unprecedented boom in other parts of the world as individuals start to adopt online shopping practices during the COVID-19 crisis.

RISE OF TELEMEDICINE

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has already started to shift healthcare delivery to an online, remote platform. Out of necessity, this could continue to skyrocket well into the future as healthcare professionals acknowledge the shortcomings of traditional-care settings during a pandemic.

 

With telemedicine, individuals can stay home for a video call with their doctor of choice instead of commuting to the location. Most importantly, telemedicine helps keep individuals away from those patients that really need critical care and have to be cared for within medical institutions.

THE REVIVAL OF PARKS

 

In the pre-pandemic period, parks were mainly seen as a location for picnics, playgrounds, barbecues etc. During the crisis however, more and more individuals are heading to parks for walks, to get a breath of fresh air, and to have a moment of respite.

 

With this, there鈥檚 a chance that governments may direct more of their public investment into open spaces that are accessible to all and great for people to gather in. Society might come out of this pandemic valuing these airy spaces much more than the stuffiness of indoor shopping malls.

 

Business may also take the opportunity to create unique spaces that are a combination of shared working space with both indoor and outdoor spaces. There may also be spaces created within these areas for children to both play and learn. That way, parents can head to shared working spaces in close proximity to their homes, and also take their children to work.

MORE APPRECIATION OF WHAT WE HAVE

 

One thing鈥檚 for sure鈥撯搒ociety is definitely going to be far more appreciative of what we currently have. Meeting up with friends and going for a meal at a restaurant used to be taken for granted. Now, as we鈥檙e asked to stay at home, however, we miss hanging out with our friends and dining at our favourite restaurants. Once this pandemic is over, we鈥檒l no longer take small things for granted, and we鈥檒l learn to fully appreciate and be thankful for those moments.

 

At the same time, we鈥檒l also learn to deeply appreciate the power of the human spirit, as displayed by doctors, nurses, political leaders, and even ordinary citizens that have shown effectiveness, passion, resilience, leadership, courage and more in the face of uncertainty.

EVOLVING HOME SPACES

 

Since we鈥檝e had to stay at home during these difficult times, most of us have tried to make our space as comfortable and homely as possible. While this is possible for some, others may have had to reside in smaller spaces without all the comforts of a normal home. In the future, cosy spaces may be developed for those that are on a tighter budget, and these could be modern and space-efficient, yet homely.

 

At the same time, more individuals may decide to stay at home and cook, or gather with friends instead of going out. With the shifts in the needs of individuals, newly built houses may incorporate better kitchens with high-tech equipment, or include spaces for exercise and relaxation. Companies may start carrying more items to give homes a warm atmosphere, such as air purifiers that emit pleasant fragrances, or lighting that can be adjusted to cater to different moods and settings.

CONSTANT SHIFTS

 

While the above are some examples of changes that could happen after the COVID-19 crisis, there are plenty more shifts that may occur, from politics to the global economy and technology.

 

Even though some potential changes might feel unsettling, such as nations staying closed and touching becoming taboo, there are also plenty of opportunities and positive outcomes that could arise in the future after the end of this crisis.
