Considering I work in travel, this is an absolute disaster.
On a personal note though, it has given me a chance to catch up on all 'life admin', spend time with the girlfriend and call friends for a catch up. What else has COVID-19 proven (stolen but I still agree):
- The jobs we were told couldn't be done remotely can actually be done remotely
- Disabled people could have been working from home, however some corporations just did not want them to
- Internet is a utiity not a luxury
- Universal healthcare is necessary
I (we) have also heard barely anything about ISIS or gender fluidity while this has been happening. Now that you all have time, I would recommend watching The Truman Show then The Matrix. That could be a starting point for your research.
In the meantime, I hope all of our friends and family stay safe.
