What will "normal" be like after coronavirus?

COVID-19 - Metroscene Mag

After many weeks of lockdowns, tragic loss of life, and extreme efforts to flatten the curve, our future remains unknown and blurry at this point. The Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) will end soon. But a lot of questions remain unanswered. So, now what? What will "normal" be like after coronavirus?


Here’s what might happen after the ECQ gets lifted: 




Walking on a tightrope



After the ECQ, everyone will be walking on a tightrope that's for sure. The Risk of resurgence of the disease is inevitable that why #SocialDistacing will still be required until a vaccine is found. Travels in and out of the country will still be restricted and working -from home might still be implemented by companies. The fear towards the COVID-19 pandemic will still remain among Filipinos, long after the ECQ is over. That's why the pandemic’s challenges will continue.  And will not automatically subside on their own. 

We must not then suddenly revert to our normal way of living because If we stop, then all of our efforts will be wasted. Lockdowns protect the most vulnerable. However, they do not make people immune. If we rush into going back to normal, we could potentially have a second peak as the spread of the virus may still continue in the next couple of months.
