The World After The Pandemic

Sometime in the future, this state of Lockdown will end and we can go back to our normal lives. If we don’t do anything, we will return to the same gridlocked cities, extreme noise and air pollution, and inefficient healthcare and school systems, just like before.

The World After The Pandemic

Sometime in the future, this state of Lockdown will end and we can go back to our normal lives. If we don’t do anything, we will return to the same gridlocked cities, extreme noise and air pollution, and inefficient healthcare and school systems, just like before.

The World Should Be Different

  • Companies that find out that teleworking is working for them may extend it to employees even after the lockdown, building trust and avoiding rush hour traffic in the process. They can also provide flexi-time to their workforce.

  • We need to invest in clean energy so that the clean air we see in this lockdown period is maintained.

  • We need to look into a better and more resilient economic system which protects the disadvantaged, and maybe start the much-debated UBI (Univeral Basic Income)

Our Education System

Our education system needs to be rethought and restructured, changing the way we impart education. We need to make e-learning a regular feature and make the school experience more student-friendly.

Our Healthcare Systems

Our health systems are broken, inefficient and ridiculously expensive. They seem to be more about protecting Big Pharma and Insurance companies pockets than about the health of the patient. A complete overhaul is required, maybe by introducing telemedicine, and other technology-based solutions to self-diagnose.

Fighting The Pandemic

A vaccine is at least eighteen months away, provided it works, and there is a hunt for quicker solutions.

Even having large capacity hospitals to treat more people at the same time is not working if social distancing measures are not activated among the population. Also, if the measures are lifted after five months, the pandemic will most likely return.

A Different Way Of Life

Sporting events, cinemas, art galleries, concerts and any other commercial activity that involves a large gathering will take a beating in the long run. There are other issues at stake: Airline activity, public transportation, and private schools.

There is also widespread unemployment, along with a huge rise in domestic violence.

Resolve

The measures to stop the spread of the virus are well-known by now: staying home in lockdown, working from home as a default option, schools switching from physical classrooms to e-learning models.

Not every country has been able to make these choices fast, due to a combination of hesitation, inaction, and paralysis. Before any decision is made, the first thing to do is determine what needs to be done and at what pace and scale.

Resilience

As the current health crisis steamrolls into an economic crisis unparalleled for the last 100 years, the decline in economic activity is already at par with the great depression.

This crisis of global proportions requires resilience, both for near-term issues like liquidity and cash flow, as well as long-term issues like uncertainty, personal financial stress and recovering from multiple challenges that were already present and are now further complicated due to the pandemic.
