Silver linings in every harm:
Many companies are now checking their assets and capability for remote work, mine included. Needless to say, there will be a great productivity surge whose results I'm looking forward to see once the pandemic is over.
Add to this people being forced to cancel their flights and you have a slightly less worn out environment too.
The question here is: does it stick? I'm not convinced of it unless we cross the barrier where societies start to crumble, and then the harmful impact would strongly overweigh the good.
