In reaction to the Covid19 pandemic, jurisdictions worldwide have issued lifesaving directives that ordered people to stay at home asking them to make a difference to release pressure off health services and saving lives of people at risks. The question raises slowly about what are the consequences of such drastic measures in matter of economical, social, as well as physical, and mental personal development of any ages.
Staying at home to keep people safe can be a difficult concept to grasp, especially when you are feeling fit and healthy yourself. Families of various economical backgrounds, living in various sizes of apartments, must share poor wifi access for education, work, and recreational purpose. While stuck together in the emergency of this reaction to the pandemic into a forced life in common, people have to face new and unknown socio-economical problems that are slowly emerging.
