Compilation of best screenshots during video conference calls.
The coronavirus pandemic is creating big troubles for people. Work and studies from home are the new conditions for everyone all across the globe. To prevent the virus from spreading at the workplace, schools and universities, more and more companies are turning to remote work as a necessary step to continue realizing their agenda. This unpredicted new reality is for an unknown time limits, but it made the bosses meet their employees online.
One of the leaders decisions, is to encourage people to work from home during quarantine. Working from home for someone is paradise, but for others can be horrible. Families with children found here a big problem, no video conference without them. There are also some people who have problems with modern technology, so they transform themselves in a potato, using some filters and are unable to figure out how to turn the filter off.
The global work-from-home movement intended to maintain efficiency during the COVID-19 pandemic, so people can maintain economic stability in their family budget. The closure of schools and transition to “distance learning” for children, created the condition of studying at home, so students now are the one who also have daily online conferences.
For many persons, setting up a home office is a full creation, while in self-isolation people get creative. Some parents share their desk space with kids or are having furry little friends participate in conference calls. No matter in which situation you are, you have to work or study at home. Online conferences are the best option, while learning and working process is maintained.
What is self-isolation and why do we need to follow the quarantine lockdown?
Self-isolation is such a regime when the maximum number of people do not allow contacts with each other. Simply they spend all their time at home and go out only in case of an important need. For example, buy products at the supermarket.
This is an important and practically way to deal with a pandemic. The less you contact people, the lower your risk of getting sick or infecting others. Staying healthy right now is an important help to society and the medical system, which is under heavy pressure. After all, if at the same time more people get sick than the medical facilities are able to accept, someone will not be helped. To prevent this terrible situation, stay home. Moreover, if you come up with different activities, it will not be boring at all.
From a legal point of view, the individual quarantine is applied in two ways:
(1)institutionalized quarantine (most often referred under the term quarantine), when an individual is placed by authorities in special quarantine centers for a certain period of time;
(2)home isolation (also referred to as self-isolation), when an individual has the obligation to remain in the home area for a period of time decided by the authorities.
Contact with other people should be avoided so to keep away the coronavirus infection. The World Health Organization recommends not approaching others closer than a meter, and the American Center for Disease Control and Prevention - 1.8 meters. It is believed that at this distance the virus particles will not be transmitted by coughing or sneezing. That’s why at home we feel safe, the feeling of safety is the most important now. Self-isolation means safety.
Their relatives, friends, friends of their friends died. In all families there is a tragic story: death, illness, poverty, bankruptcy. After 11 weeks of severe quarantine, the "lock" was opened and Wuhan City, the "heart" of the pandemic that has plagued the world is trying to come back to life.
The city with 11 million inhabitants begins to fall asleep after more than two and a half months, it was like a ghost. The new coronavirus started right here from an animal and bird market and spread uncontrolled across the globe. Today (April 8), a few days after China had no local transmission case, and just a day after the historic "no death of Covid-19" restrictions were lifted. The quarantine imposed on January 23 ended at midnight Tuesday through Wednesday, and passengers began storming buses and stations, some wearing full-length suits.
But the over 80,000 cases and 3,300 deaths remain behind and the hope that one day the world will look exactly like before the coronavirus. For now, it's just hope, because there's a long way to go.
Although some restrictions have been lifted by the authorities, many control measures remain in place. The Chinese were warned not to travel unless absolutely necessary. Those who go to Beijing go through two rounds of tests, and in other provinces, those who come to Wuhan have to be quarantined for two weeks, the New York Times writes.
In addition, everyone is required to use a tracking application on their phone or tablet and to prove that they were not sick or did not come into contact with sick people of COVID-19. The Chinese system records every place where people make payments and the network of hundreds of millions of surveillance video cameras is famous.

The French, Spaniards, Czechs and Germans took off their masks to drink a cold beer on the terrace
The week of May 11-15 is an important one for many European countries! Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, Austria and the Czech Republic are among the first to start the "great relaxation" of the restrictive measures imposed by COVID-19. Even if the rules imposed by the authorities are simple, no one respected the social distance and did not keep his mask on when he reached the terraces.
WHO experts and local authorities have imposed four simple rules of countries trying to return to normal:
1. keep a social distance of 1.5 meters;
2. to impose frequent hand washing;
3. to impose the wearing of protective masks in public spaces;
4. to do everything possible to prevent social overcrowding.
None of these rules have been followed since Monday in the main European countries.
The banks of the Seine were flooded by thousands of Parisians eager to socialize after being isolated for more than 50 days. The beautiful weather erased with the sponge from the collective memory the devastating balance caused by COVID-19: 178,000 sick and 27,000 dead. But they were not the only Europeans to "relax" over a beer.
In Prague, Czech Republic, thousands of locals took advantage of the beautiful weather and drank huge amounts of beer right on the sidewalks. However, only 8,200 contaminations and 260 deaths were recorded in the Czech Republic, due to prompt action by the authorities.
The Belgians also forgot about masks for months, but they respected social distance. They drank their beers in the parks, because the terraces and bars are still closed. Belgium recorded 54,000 illnesses and 8,800 deaths.
The terraces were also opened in Switzerland on Monday, after the authorities announced the balance of the two months of nightmare: 30,000 contaminations and 1,800 deaths.
The terraces and promenades in Madrid, Barcelona and Tarragona were stormed and people drank cold beer forgetting that they are not allowed to gather in groups of 10 people and must wear masks.
After recording a record balance of 270,000 contaminations and over 27,000 deaths, Spain's population of 47 million seems to ignore the recommendations of the government led by Pedro Sanchez, which recommends caution. “The temptation of a cold beer is too great and no one thinks about the consequences ".
The Austrians were more cautious than their German neighbors and have not yet opened the terraces and bars, preferring to drink beer in the parks at the appropriate distance. In the north-eastern state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, the restaurants opened on Saturday, but only two people sat at the tables and drank beer in a mug with surgical gloves in their hands.
