How the world will change after the epidemic: 8 forecasts from experts

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — As the COVID-19 virus moves around the planet, humanity is forced to change. Our life is changing, our usual routine and our work. Therefore, many experts and analysts are trying to predict how our lives will change after the coronavirus epidemic.

Below we have compiled the basic forecasts of what the world will face after the end of the coronavirus epidemic.

1. More contactless interfaces and interactions.

Some time ago, users were impressed by the touch screens and their capabilities. The COVID-19 epidemic has changed the situation – now people have become conscious about the dangers of touching various surfaces in the context of disease transmission.

Even before the epidemic began, contactless devices began to appear, with the help of which it was possible to perform the same actions as with a touch screen. And now experts predict that such contactless devices will be very popular.

According to experts, sales of voice-controlled devices will increase.

2. Strengthening digital infrastructure

COVID-19 forced people to adapt to work from home and to be isolated. Companies were forced to look for suitable solutions in order to continue working under the prevailing conditions. Therefore, software options such as Wandera have really found their place in the business world. Software like this helps to keep employees on the same page by sharing their documents and programs safely between them via a zero-trust platform. Furthermore, this zero trust platform helps to eliminate the risk of cybercrime and heightens a business’ cybersecurity ability. This entailed a more active development and use of digital solutions that allow you to work from home, as well as hold meetings and meetings. These good practices can continue after the end of the epidemic. Some businesses may decide to operate fully virtually after this and look to companies like Your Virtual Office London to ensure they still have all they need to comply with their country’s business laws. Many people realized that business trips to other cities and countries for a meeting or negotiations are too costly both in time and in money. As a result, experts predict that business trips will be less popular even after the end of the epidemic.

3. Improved monitoring using the Internet of things and “big date”

During the epidemic, wider use of applications began, which enabled the use of the Internet of things.

Applications at the national and global level allow you to better track people’s movements and predict infections, as well as understand who the infected people were in contact with.

All these systems will be useful even after the epidemic is over, as they will allow better control of future epidemics and limit the spread of diseases.

4. Telemedicine

During the epidemic, many hospitals and clinics had to change the way they functioned so non-priority people didn’t have to risk being exposed to the virus. For example, instead of going to the hospital, pregnant women opted for virtual pediatric telemedicine. On top of that, many of us began to use the online consultation of doctors. To reduce the flow of people in clinics, many institutions remind their clients that consultations on many issues can be held online, without a personal presence. That is why the popularity of such services, especially in Western countries, has grown significantly in recent years.

Many medical centers have practiced similar services before, before the epidemic, but experts predict that in the future the popularity of services like telemedicine inpatient care will grow.

5. Online shopping

Despite the fact that before, before the epidemic, online purchases played a significant role, the virus strengthened the position of those companies that offer the possibility of online purchases. Those companies that at one time refused to develop this direction were in an extremely disadvantaged situation, many went bankrupt, left without customers.

Those companies that have just begun to invest in the development of the online direction during the epidemic began to more actively develop the online sector. In addition, companies began to develop logistics and delivery systems, which will improve the quality of services.

6. Using robots

Robots cannot get viruses. They can deliver products or work in factories. Right now, during the epidemic, companies realized how widely robots could be used to keep companies working even in such difficult conditions. Robots began to play a very important role, and experts predict that they will be widely used after the epidemic ends.

7. More digital events

The organizers and participants of events in which personal participation was previously required now understand and evaluate the pros and cons of holding events online. During the coronavirus epidemic, many of the activities that were previously held with the personal participation of visitors were forced to go online. Moreover, participants and organizers appreciated the undoubted advantages of this format.

Experts believe that the online format is unlikely to replace and supplant events with personal participation. However, it is likely that such events will successfully complement traditional events.

8. The growing popularity of eSports

Many sporting events were canceled or postponed indefinitely, and fans of sports teams had to somehow cope with the fact that they were left without their favorite sport because of the coronavirus epidemic.

However, there is an increase in eSports. It does not depend on epidemics, since these events do not always require the personal participation of athletes. Competitions in these sports are held online.

Experts predict the growing popularity of e-sports, however, traditional sports will not lose popularity.

In general, experts note that the epidemic forced people to take a different look at the world and our usual lives, and also forced us to adapt to a new reality and look for acceptable solutions that would allow us to maintain maximum comfort in new conditions.
