How are quarantines removed in different countries?

Agree, quarantine cannot last forever. Only a few months have passed since the pandemic of the new coronavirus was announced, and the world economy has already faced unprecedented difficulties. So, on May 1, 2020, a report of the US Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) was published on the effect that COVID-19 had on the global economy. According to experts, the virus can reduce global economic growth by as much as 2% per month, but the full impact of the pandemic will not be known until all the consequences have been studied. Nevertheless, some consequences of the pandemic and quarantine can be seen today: since many countries are gradually weakening quarantine measures, new, high-tech devices are being installed on city streets, in parks, metro and shopping centers.

What is happening in the world?

Before you begin a review of the realcool disinfecting devices, I remind you that the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that causes COVID-19, at the time of this writing, has infected almost five million people around the world. At the same time, events develop differently in different countries. So, as of May 20, Russia took the second place in the world in the number of infected, ahead of the previous "leaders" - Spain, Brazil and the UK.

Moreover, if you carefully look atstatistics of mortality in other countries, it turns out that in Russia there are much fewer deaths than in Germany. The difference in numbers turned out to be so significant that many global media questioned the data provided by Moscow, but representatives of the Ministry of Health assure that the data indicated in official statistics are correct. One way or another, about who is right and why we will definitely find out, but in the future.

Well, or almost the same, since we all understand that the world is unlikely to be exactly as it was before the pandemic. Since there is only a way out of quarantine in our country, it clearly does not hurt us to look at how everyday life can change - what will be trips by public transport, how to go to work, how, in the end, to go to shops and so on and so forth. .

Office work is now always at a distance

In fact, in almost all countries of the worldoffices are currently being re-equipped - at least in those areas that work during emergencies.
