Due to covid19, many measures have been put in place, in order to stop it’s spread. These include regular washing of our hands with soap and sanitizer, cleaning surfaces, use of
protective gear and social distancing.
But even with these in place, the virus continued to spread at a high rate. From one country to a global pandemic.
So, governments and authorities put in place lockdowns, in order to isolate those infected and stop its spread.
Because of this people are stuck in their homes. And this has brought about limited mobility.
Limited mobility has led to various challenges such as: unemployment, access to healthcare, education and many more.
And this is where technology comes in to save us.
Despite the fact that we are stuck in our homes, we are still mobile with technology.
We still have access to various services, we are still in touch with loved ones, some of the people are still working and many more.
Some of the ways in which we are still mobile with technology include;
Working from home is done by many people and companies and so, it’s not a new concept.
But because of the pandemic, many people and companies who didn’t have it, are now starting to adopt it.
Working remotely is possible because of the various applications and online platforms that are in place.
All one need is a computer, internet connection, a cup of coffee and you’re good to go.
And actually waking up.
Because of working remotely, some people are still working, many companies are still in business
and providing services to their customers.
One of the greatest innovation that came with technology, is communication.
It’s made easy and better day by day due to the various improvements and features that are invented.
Considering the current situation, there is need for constant communication, in order for people to keep in touch.
Because of technology, people are in contact with each other through text, voice and video calls.
Even when people are miles apart and isolated, they are still connected.
As they say, relationships are built on communication, we shouldn’t complain coz we still have the foundation.
And if your relationship is based on sex or something deeper, this is the time for you to find out.
Relationships aside, we still get timely and important communications from the authorities
through media such as radio, television and many more.
Despite the fact, that people are locked down in their homes, their is still need for various services and products.
And this where e-commerce comes in to bridge a gap between the suppliers and consumers
The e-commerce systems in place, enable people shop and order for various products and goods, pay
and have them delivered at their doorstep without leaving their homes.
So, in the comfort of my bed or couch. I can orde for food, medicine, household items and get theem delivered without moving an inch.
Its not only supporting people in homes, but also the businesses dealing in household items, food stuffs, pharmacies, delivery companies etc.
Entertainment & information.

Music, movies, tv shows, past sports events, social media challenges you can name it.
They say that we are in the golden age of content, and hell yeah, this is so true.
If anything, the trouble is choosing one thing to catch cause it’s a lot.
And people have access to all kind of content in their homes because of the various online platforms.
Due to the lockdown various streaming apps and platforms have had an increase in the traffic and users.
In such a situation, the only thing that can cheer you up is entertainment.
