How to use virtual technology to keep things running as Coronavirus continues to bite

In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, it is clear that virtual technology has helped ordinary people, businesses, and political leaders stay connected.

Innovations such as video calls, video conferencing, and live streaming have helped many businesses to continue operating as employees work on their projects from home.

Since social distancing is one of the measures recommended for reducing the spread of Covid-19, businesses and governments are conducting business through virtual technology such as video conferencing.

On the other hand, media houses are using platforms such as Skype in interviewing guests instead of inviting them to studio; thus fostering social distancing.

DJs have also gone the online way. For those who already have setups their homes or offices, they are in a better position to entertain their audiences without meeting physically. However, the problem is that the online method is not earning them money yet. It is a new trend and they need to be more creative about how to generate income as countries continue to fight the Coronavirus pandemic.

Gym instructors can also adopt the virtual way of doing things. It is possible to help people work out from home through Skype and other platforms including YouTube. In fact, some manufacturers specialize in making gym equipment require buyers to download an app that gives them access to live and recorded workout classes. That way, they can exercise from home.

Churches have also upgraded their game including those who had no online presence. Preachers are telling their congregation to join them for Sunday services online.

Social media apps such as Facebook and Instagram are also helping users keep in touch with each other. Media houses are also going live on Facebook for example to reach more people who are perhaps not close to a TV set.

Music artists are another group that should figure out how to use virtual technology to ensure they are still in touch with their fans.

Ordering products online is also another way that technology has helped people get what they need without getting outside their homes.

Even as Coronavirus requires people across the world to keep a distance from each other, virtual technology is helping people, businesses, and governments to keep things running. For businesses owners and people in the creative industry who had not set up their online platforms, they now understand why they need to.
