Let us accept it. Covid 19 is not going to off completely like how it surfaced. He is an “uninvited guest” ( ghost?) present here to trouble us for some more time! It is going to take a while for the medical community to come up with a Vaccine or a super drug that can make us to function and work how we worked before 2020. Ensuring personal hygiene, wearing a face mask or maintaining social distance are new normal situations from now on wards. Whether we like it or not we need to accept that. We also have to ensure we remain healthy to sustain and also ensure your neighbor, co worker, your companion, and everyone around your community remain healthy. We do not have a silver bullet answer for that but this is a new doctrine we all have to follow.
But life has to move on. We cannot afford to ignore these forever. At some point of time we need to come out of our comfort zone and start facing these challenges. This applies for everyone – who work in any industry today. Be it Academics, IT, Hospitals, Manufacturing, Services , etc – anyone who venture out to their work will have to follow these norms. Also, it is equally important we also get used to new norms which will be forced to us by external factors – be it customers, patients, students etc – who used our services before Covid 19. They may demand us to be ready for a virtual business environment wherein the same services or some of the services within the overall business should be made compatible to online platforms. We no longer can conveniently ignore these but we must be quick to embrace these newer tools and platforms
