On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization made an announcement in which they characterized the COVID-19 (also known as Coronavirus) as a pandemic. Following the announcement, countries were placed on lockdown and people were forced to practice social distancing. This is done to curb the virus spread.
Due to social distancing, people are forced to work from home and embrace a remote working lifestyle. While some of us are lucky to have the option to work remotely, others don’t.

While there is much to worry about, there is a lot to be hopeful for.
