Despite all the negatives arising from this horrendous coronavirus outbreak, I recently read a list in which people had identified the few things they could be positive about – the reduction in greenhouse gases, the reduced travel, the time with close family and more home cooking and less takeaways. You could add a few to this list, but generally I think everyone is making the most of a bad situation.
Thoughts are moving to the time when all this will end and what shape the world economy will be in at that time. We are seeing emails from companies who are starting to think of that time; maybe a week, possibly longer, and of their needs when that time comes.
I have seen emails from students concerned about their final year projects and material. I don’t know if these are likely to happen this year, but people are looking at the future and I think small steps after this will be the way forward. You have to admire the confidence and just hope we can all be as positive.
