Remote Working as a Measure Against COVID-19

More people would like to start working remotely after COVID-19 was characterized as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation.

Employers are advising their staff to work from home if possible as this is one of the measures to prevent fuelling the outbreak, however, this is not the case for some people.

Big companies such as HSBC already have people working remotely. Irwin Mitchell, one of the leading companies in Sheffield, commented: “We have a lot of people working remotely but this is not because of the Coronavirus.

“It’s for other reasons and it’s part of their contracts. They work from the office for a couple of days and then for the rest of the week they work from home.”

Some people believe that the situation at the moment with COVID-19 can be a test to see if remote working can become the new normal, but for many people in the UK it already is.

!function(e,i,n,s){var t=”InfogramEmbeds”,d=e.getElementsByTagName(“script”)[0];if(window[t]&&window[t].initialized)window[t].process&&window[t].process();else if(!e.getElementById(n)){var o=e.createElement(“script”);o.async=1,o.id=n,o.src=”https://e.infogram.com/js/dist/embed-loader-min.js”,d.parentNode.insertBefore(o,d)}}(document,0,”infogram-async”);

A lot of people online tweeted that remote working can save lots of time and energy, especially if you live in a big city.

An online petition circulated the web the past couple of days regarding the closure of schools and colleges for an appropriate amount of time amidst COVID-19 and so far nearly 300, 000 people have signed it. #Closetheschoolsuk was trending last night as well.

Some online users are fed up with the panic surrounding the virus started making jokes by comparing COVID-19 to climate change.
