Working online is the new normal; get in line and sail through

COVID-19 has disrupted the world. The world is no longer the same. People are no longer allowed to interact as it used to be before the pandemic came knocking. Worldwide, people are being encouraged to wear their masks every time they are in public, wash their hands, sanitize, and observe the social distance.

COVID-19 was something that was not anticipated. It is an event in history that no one was ready for. Institutions did not have strategies in place.

This has included the buying of computers, smart TVs, and other tools that can enable them to deliver on their normal work without interruptions.
