No doubt that technology has been a lot helpful during this pandemic. Where should I even start! Should I start from the food sector to the health sector and then move to the economic sector and bounce back to the relationship and lifestyle sector? You can name it! Technology is a great blessing for us, especially during this coronavirus, whereby there is a movement restriction.
Can you imagine if there is no technology, how are we going to survive? No social media, no communication with loved ones, no shopping online, no telehealth/telemedicine forum, no crypto trading like bitcoin, and the rest. Trust me, life will be complicated during this period. The following are ways in which technology has helped us amid coronavirus.
- Increasement in digital marketing
Technology is highly significant when it comes to the economics sector. With the help of digital marketing, many people have been able to sell their brands to the world, and it has a strong influence on the economy in the world today. Due to the movement restriction, a lot of businesspeople have had their businesses on hold. With the improvement of technology, most of these businesses have been moving, and consumers can also purchase what interests them.
- Digital investment
It is another great help from technology. When we come to the financial sector during this COVID, it is noticeable that many people are now job seekers one way or the other in the world today. Someone like me who is a teacher has stopped earning a salary for months now, so tell me, how do people like us survive? Thanks to technology advancements that enable us to invest the little money we have gathered before COVID into cryptocurrency to generate more income. People worldwide now understand the importance of blockchain investment in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, etc.
- Data management
When it comes to keeping data in a safe and reliable form, digital should come first. Technology helps to keep and store any form of data. In this pandemic that you cannot access every information related to your company or business, technology has made it easier to get across to any information and store information safely.
- Health and lifestyle
Most health care center has been locked; few are working now. During this period, most health centers do not respond to people; many people face health challenges cannot visit the doctor for treatment. With telehealth/telemedicine’s evolution, patients can now access doctors if there is a network connection conveniently. There are many techniques online regarding our lifestyle, what to eat, how to live healthily, etc.
- Relationship and social networking
Wow! I do not know how life would have been without social media and dating apps. Boring right? Yes, it will be so dull. Imagine not seeing or talking to your friends and loved for months because of movement restriction; how well can you cope? Thank goodness, there are social networks that enable you to communicate with your friends and loved ones. You can also meet new people!
