But, probably one of the most obvious way the world is changing post Covid-19 is how we will greet each other. Instead of shaking hands or giving each other hugs, many will prefer to maintain social distancing to reduce the potential spread of the virus.

Mass gathering will probably be reduced and postponed as it increases the risk of transmitting of the virus particularly among the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions.

Another aspect that will change is communication in the working environment. Instead of face-to-face communication, virtual meetings, video conferences, email communication and social media will be the preferred method of communicating, thus giving the culture of working from home as a new normal.
