If you really want to spend time with your friend or neighbor, just make sure to keep the 6 feet apart rule and everything should be alright. Remember the further away, the better.

Everybody knows or, at least, should know by now the rule of the 6 feet apart. This distance is recommended in the current period, in order to slow down the spread of the virus. 

However, one exception to these rules refers to public gatherings, which usually take place in parks or on beaches: gatherings that imply more than ten people are overall to be avoided, even if the recommended distance can be kept.

Some of the interesting digital date ideas that are proposed in the dating Apps:

  • Watch TikTok Videos, trying to understand Millennials and Gen Z
  • Draw pictures of each other
  • Tackle a crossword puzzle together
  • Watch an old concert on youtube together
  • Read the same book and discuss it on video chat.

The false choice

“Save the economy or save lives” is a false choice.
A group of economists published a paper on the 1918 flu outbreak. Their findings revealed:

  • Early and aggressive interventions saved lives and triggered a faster rebound, such as job growth and banking assets.
  • Without a healthy population, there can be no healthy economy.
