Who has not heard of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) now? If you have not (which I highly doubt if you are reading this) it is a new virus that is swiping the earth at high speed, locking down country after country!
As I type this blog post the world has come to a total halt, countries are closing their borders, people on vacations are not able to get home, stores are closing down, small businesses are going out of business while hundreds of medical institutions, Governments, and Non-Government Organizations (NGO's) are doing all they can to contain the virus.
Meanwhile, businesses all over are informing their customers how they are dealing with the virus via various applications, and how they are proceeding further.
I do think it will be a while until we see businesses open their doors again though. You can't just forget that it never happened. Various protocols and resources will be put in place to ensure the safety of both staff and customers. One of my friends even told me that when their office eventually returns, they'll be enlisting the help of somewhere similar to DNC Facility Services' Janitorial Services to make sure that every inch of their office is clean and free from potential germs. Before all of this happened, their office only needed cleaning a couple of times a month, but that will all change when they go back. Or if they do go back. These are troubling times for individuals and businesses alike.
Myself, I am in quarantine after visiting Portugal for 5 days at the beginning of March and personally, I as I'm sure many other people are, trying to make sense of all this!
After a lot of thinking and debating, I must say that for now, I have landed at: The Corona Virus (COVID-19) has to be natures way of saying “enough is enough, you guys don't want to cut down on your pollution, greediness, overpopulation, etc… well then I will create something that will make you cut down and change your ways. simple as that!
I don't believe there is any conspiracies going on or anything of that sort, I literally think it's mother earth taking control. However, people experts and non-expert will ALWAYS have conflicting points of views and EVERYONE has something to say, especially in the western world where the majority of people are so spoiled!
But there is one place even all the money in the world can't buy and we can't control and that is Nature! We DO NOT control earth/nature, no matter how hard we try mother earth will find a way to take the control back and we will find a way to blame someone!
Working From Home
However, with all this going on – people getting laid off, having to stay home, kids home from schools, etc – there has never been more people looking for ways to make money online. Businesses have also been asking employees to work from home for safety reasons, with the intention of stopping the spread of Coronavirus. This has caused many businesses to struggle, but there are more and more hints for these businesses to take to allow them to conquer working from home. The key is software that enables communication and collaboration.
