The Coronavirus Is Making Us More Reliant on Technology
The Coronavirus has made us increasingly dependent and reliant on technology, according to Ken Kurson. We’ve seen this in the ways in which consumers have been driven to e-commerce sites like Amazon, AliBaba and the like in an effort to purchase products that they otherwise would go to brick and mortar shops to acquire.
Indeed, this development makes a lot of sense given the nature of the virus and the scope of the current health pandemic we are living through. But there are also ways in which technology has contributed to many people’s ability to cope with the virus.
When one thinks of elderly people for instance, who are unfortunately most susceptible to contracting the virus, they are able to still acquire goods without compromising or risking exposure to the virus in a store. Cluttered and claustrophobic environments can indeed be dangerous for people of all ages to be in during these perilous times. As Ken Kurson posits, technology has helped people manage their coping and living during this challenging period in everyone’s lives.
