Changes in life: The world after social isolation
Because of the situation of covid19, the world has faced a major change in the routine that will go down in history. As a result, social isolation became necessary for the prevention and non-transmission of the disease among people. However, it’s not yet known when the isolation will definitely end, but for sure, many things will change. For example, in health, people will have a greater attention on the chronic diseases that exist and can get worse with the presence of another disease, and also, they will give better attention to health care, on wearing the mask when necessary and following the commitment to wash hands and hygiene.
Also, the search for psychological online care has been great during quarantine, due to fear, unemployment and loneliness, and it is probably that this system will continue to exist for a long time. Because of the busy life, many people are unable to have time to go to a place and be cared, and this method has facilitated and will facilitate the treatment of these people after social isolation.
In the second analysis, it is possible to see that in the corporate environment, many companies will choose to hire professionals who work as a home office, at the lowest cost they will have to bear and avoid the need to be in agglomeration, as in the bus and subway. In education, as many schools and colleges will continue to benefit from the technology for presentations, works and online seminars that has enabled many students to attend from anywhere in the country. However, for this teaching to continue, everyone, especially in Brazil and according to the law, needs to have access to this system.
Undoubtedly, among these and other changes that tend to occur, many historians and sociologists considered that there will be greater questions about humanity. It was evident that, even if anyone can get covid19 disease, there are still many social inequalities that hinder the attention, lifestyle and treatment of some individuals. Questions related to the strengthening of values such as empathy and solidarity, a model of society based on consumerism and profit at any cost will also be questioned, as many people have started to rethink about their own lifestyle and what lessons can be learned from everything that is happening.
Subjects like these are likely to be further debated after social isolation, even though some people don’t respect security measures, because there will always be exceptions. Therefore, we have no way of predicting the future, but there are transformations that are happening and that make us have a sense of what is to come. We are moving towards a more technological world, but we must not forget the issues mentioned that need to be questioned now and in the future.
