Ang pandemya ng COVID-19 ay hindi na lamang isang pandaigdigang krisis sa kalusugan kundi isa na may malawak na implikasyon sa lahat ng sektor ng lipunan. Hindi pa rin natin alam kung gaano katagal ang krisis na ito, ngunit alam nating magbabago ito sa paraan ng ating pagtatrabaho, paglalakbay, pag-aaral, at pakikipag-ugnayan sa isa’t isa sa hinaharap.
The COVID-19 pandemic is no longer just a global health crisis but one with widespread implications across all sectors of society. We still don’t know how long this crisis will last, but we do know it will change the way we work, travel, study, and interact with each other in the future.
