Microsoft founder Bill Gates is confident that the coronavirus pandemic will fundamentally change the way we do business and the way we work, and even after defeating the virus, the world “won't return to normal for a long time.” The entrepreneur predicted only seven global changes that await humanity after covid. published by Inc.
For example, Gates believes that, first, remote meetings will become the norm in the near future. Previously, the client could be offended if they did not want to meet with him in person. Now the attitude has changed.
Second, software, especially for online communication, will grow faster.
Third, companies will begin to divide offices among themselves. Just because few people will work in the office full week again.
Fourth, people will stop striving to move to large centers. It will be possible to work remotely from anywhere in the world.
Fifth, people will be less likely to interact with colleagues.
Also, Gates is confident that the emergence of a vaccine in itself will not immediately save the planet from coronavirus. The disease will not disappear anywhere and new foci will appear in the future. This does not mean that the world will forever remain in a state of quarantine, but it will be possible to truly cope with the pandemic only after the coronavirus can be brought under control around the world, and the vaccine becomes available to everyone.
And the last forecast – the next pandemic will not be so bad. Humanity has gained experience in fighting infection and will be able to apply it.
Recall that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation of American Philanthropists will allocate another $ 70 million for the development and distribution of a vaccine against COVID-19.
