Impact of the 2019–20 Corona Virus Pandemic on Career

PUBLISH DATE 25th March 2020

The Coronavirus 2019-20 pandemic has affected educational systems worldwide, leading to the near-total closures of schools, universities, and colleges. On 16 March 2020, the COVID-19 Response Team produced a researched forecast of various scenarios for the spread of the disease in India. Without any mitigation, their forecast showed local health care capabilities vastly overwhelmed by the epidemic wave. Periodic cycles of quarantine followed by softer social distancing were recommended, with quarantines in effect two-thirds of the time.

The shift into virtual classrooms is the culmination of the past weeks’ effort to prevent COVID-19 from entering university populations and spreading to local communities: cancellation university-funded international travel for conferences, blanket bans on any international travel for spring break, cancelling study-abroad programs, creating a registration system for any domestic travel.

Distance education, which may also be called “remote learning,” is not new but can benefit a lot during this time. Distance learning can benefit students as it is convenient, flexible, education right from your home, gives real-world skills, teaches to be self-disciplined, and connects to global villages.
