Previous Deepnews Digests on coronavirus have looked at the disruptions to life, as well as the economic impacts of the pandemic. This edition looks at something more personal, the fact that millions of workers have now turned their homes into their offices. As large parts of the world get used to a new normal for the coming weeks, articles from all over the globe explore what it means to live under lockdown.
Last week’s Digest on coronavirus and the economy looked at different business sectors and parts of life where the disease was making itself felt. As events change rapidly day by day, Deepnews has decided to provide more regular updates about different angles of the crisis. This mid-week Digest again covers the economy, but focuses on the global and national responses as countries around the world prepare for months on lockdown.
The public health crisis of coronavirus has spread not just across countries but to many aspects of life. From working from home to the Olympic Games, the world is now facing the challenge of responding individually and collectively to limit the damage. Last week’s edition looked at the effect of the infodemic, though this week’s Digest uses the power of Deepnews to sort through the mass of information out there and find quality articles about how coronavirus touches on the world of work and daily life.
