COVID-19 has just shaken the whole world. This pendemic has literally changed the world upside down. People are locked –down, streets are empty, nature is clearer and the whole world is fighting against it and surely will win. But it has changed the daily life a lot. Is the change for ultimate or temporary, no one knows. Still it will definitely leave a mark.

GREETING

Being a civilized person, all of us surely have learnt a lot of decorum to greet. But this pendemic has changed it abruptly. It is not anymore those handshakes or those kisses or hugs. It is strictly the “Namaste” which is very common in indian culture. No doubt it plays a important role to maintain the social distance and also to not to be rude at the same time.

HYGIENE

Hygiene is something people like to believe that they are best at it. But COVID-19 somehow make people to review their hygiene habits. Washing hands for at least 20 seconds, sneezing or coughing covering mouth with not palm bur tissue and if not possible cough or sneeze into elbow, using sanitizers frequently or as much as possible. But the most important thing is mask. Covering mouth with mask has become the first and foremost aspect of being safe and hygienic

PUBLIC GATHERING

To be part of the big social circle people are very used to participate in public gatherings. Whether it is standing in a que to buy something, worshipping, watching movies or matches, marriage ceremony, birthday parties and so on. But now to maintain social distance people have to avoid all kinds of public gatherings.

RELIGIOUS WORSHIP

Since the time COVID-19 has hit hard, no matter in what religion people believe, they are celebrating the religious ceremonies very low key. People are used to celebrate the occasions with near and dear ones and that is the whole purpose of celebrations, right? But now people have learnt to pray, to worship, to celebrate on their own and most importantly at home. So, have people learnt the bigger truth that one does not need to run here and there to achieve blessings? Most probably yes.

ECONOMY

More than 6.6 million people filed jobless claims in the week ending 4 April, the Department of Labor said. It needs not a expert to say that economy is affected and will be continue to get affected. It is being speculated that this financial crisis will hit harder than 2008

TRAVEL

COVID-19 has effected massively the system of travelling. Flights are suspended, metro, tubes, buses are closed too. To prevent the speed of infection it was the absolute path.

EDUCATION

Schools, colleges, universities are closed for obvious reason. So apart from online learning platforms tele-schooling programmes are also taking an essential role in this time of pendemic. Parents are also taking initiative to do home-schooling.

TELE-MEDICINE

In this time of crisis tele-medicine is the probably the best way to taking care yourself. In this way, doctors do not have to physically attend patients until they are diagnosed. Little symptoms can be supervised and the next steps could be taken after. The important practice which is social distancing can be performed well by this.

WORK FROM HOME

Work from home has become the latest normal in working field. It is not only limited for sick leaves anymore. People are facing difficulties no doubt, but they have to accommodate and that is what they are doing.

HOME COOKING

As restrurents, cafes are shutdown, there is no way to get cooked meal. So the last resource is home-cooking. People are learning, re-learning this very important skill. Chances are high in this way people are eating cleaner and healthier.

      Hi Kamkar. Yes, you have listed many ways that life has changed since this virus outbreak and having to stay at home, self-isolate and practice social distancing. One thing I read was that with so many people now cooking for themselves at home that hospital emergency is having to deal with many more burns cases. I guess from people who have never cooked before.
