What the virus is doing to technology

So, with the corona virus upon us, canceling school, I figured that I would go more in-depth on how this is affecting technology and how we are using it to combat the virus. The white house has sought the help form amazon, google, and other giants in the fight against the virus. They are looking for Silicon Valley to help track, sort the creditable information, and assist those who are out of school and work. The meeting was very hush hush, but the chief of technology for the white house said that the meeting was outlined as an initial path forward. Officials are urging the companies to help combat the theories that are falsely spreading information of the virus. Supercomputers of these moguls have aided in the potential compounds that can become the vaccine. Microsoft and Amazon are spear-heading relief funds in their home state, which has been the state that was hit the hardest. Amazon, also went further and said that their cloud-computing could assist in the complicated tasks of tracking travelers.

So, what does all this mean to you?

With all these companies helping and assisting, this could mean that we get a cure/vaccine sooner than the planned 2-year time frame. This could greatly help in the containment and mass hysteria of panic that is coming from misinformation and unreliable theories.

All we can hop is that they find a cure, and hopefully, not to many people die or suffer from the disease that has caused the world to basically shut down and burn….

    The sooner we’re able to get a cure the sooner we can get back to our daily lives. The only reason I was able to buy toilet paper today was because a friend’s parents gave us a tip about a restock.

    I have seen firsthand how technology is changing during COVID. I work for a packaging company and we stopped producing certain products and began making face masks and other products in high demand. It is great to see people coming together.

    To be honest, with the level of technology I think we have, I thought we would have had a cure by now. We need a vaccine for this virus so we can all get back to our daily lives.

    Studying abroad is much more difficult than at home, but at the same time much more interesting, because of this I chose this option. It is true that I did not have time to start studying, as they imposed quarantine and I was upset, but then I discovered a lot of new things for myself. Namely investments, understood for myself the direction in which I want to develop, discovered services for writing essays which I successfully use in my studies. And much more)
