The recent arrival of the global pandemic known as COVID-19 has impacted our society with conditions that haven’t been seen for generations. The hostile infection is forcing societies around the world to change their everyday behaviour, in order to curb the devastating effects of the disease on the population.
The sudden arrival of the recent Coronavirus pandemic has brought our usual way of life to an unexpected stop; social distancing has been implemented by governments worldwide and the majority of local public facilities and businesses everywhere have been forced to close to protect the health of the population. This sudden disturbance to the status quo will pose numerous obstacles for businesses in every sector in the coming months, and with human interaction so heavily reduced for an unforeseeable amount of time, businesses will need to adapt to the new conditions imposed in order to continue and thrive in such a limited new landscape.
I think it’s fair to say that we are living in unprecedented times of change. With the rapid development of the COVID-19 pandemic affecting a huge number of the world’s population, societies around the globe have had their way of life interrupted and in some cases ground to an unexpected halt. Governments worldwide have reacted in the best interest of their citizens and have ordered work to stop, businesses to close and requested that people to stay at home in order to remain healthy and protect the wider community from the expansion of this severe illness.
