As more people are working remotely due to the Coronavirus quarantine, employees are finding creative ways to appear more online than they actually are.
For example, today most companies are using Zoom Meetings for their daily meetings. For those who are not familiar with Zoom, it is an app that allows people to hold video conferences. Here at Bemorepanda we also use Zoom and we love it!
Ok, so far all good. But, for those who does not know, there’s a feature on Zoom that can tell hosts if chat participants have navigated away from the active window for more than 30 seconds. In other words, your computer narcs you out to your boss when you’re paying more attention to funny animal videos than you are to the meeting.This means that during meetings or online classes, if you think you can switch apps while the other person talks, the app will tell on you.
However, it seems that some Zoom users have gotten pretty creative with how they are beating the app’s feature, where some have created looping videos to make it look like they’re paying attention, while others have created a custom background which features their still image.
As far as the host is concerned, they will think you’re still in the meeting, but you in reality, you can do whatever you like, like lying on your bed, playing games, eating or just nothing. Zoom Meetings was founded in 2011 by Eric Yuan, a lead engineer from Cisco Systems and its collaboration business unit WebEx.
The company went public in April, 2019 and at that time, it was valued at $16 billion. In early 2020, usage of Zoom increased sharply as schools and companies adopted the platform for remote work in response to the coronavirus pandemic, rising 67% from the start of the year to mid-March.

Even when the world is trying to find a cure for the deadly coronavirus pandemic, a new virus is threatening our society.
A report in Global Times said that a man from China's Yunnan province died from Hantavirus while on a bus to the Shandong province. Other 32 people on bus were also tested and now everyone is waiting for the results.
What is Hantavirus?
The Centre for Disease Control says that the virus is spread mainly from rodents. It goes on to say that infection with any of the hantavirus can cause hantavirus disease in people.
"Hantaviruses in the Americas are known as “New World” hantaviruses and may cause hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS). Other hantaviruses, known as “Old World” hantaviruses, are found mostly in Europe and Asia and may cause hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome.
It can cause hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) and haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS).
The disease is not airborne and can only spread to people if they come in contact with urine, feces, and saliva of rodents and less frequently by a bite from an infected host.
Symptoms of hantavirus
Early symptoms of HPS include fatigue, fever, and muscle aches, along with headaches, dizziness, chills and abdominal problems. If left untreated, it can lead to coughing and shortness of breath and can be fatal, with a mortality rate of 38 percent, according to CDC.
While the initial symptoms of HFRS too remain the same, it can cause low blood pressure, acute shock, vascular leakage, and acute kidney failure.
