It would spread slower because we'd be less connected and less densely populated

Wuhan is on the Yangtze and would've spread to Shanghai pretty quickly. Hong Kong would have been close behind. From here, the virus could go anywhere. I think it would have spread at a slightly quicker pace and our awareness of it would have been much less, until it was undeniably dug in pretty much everywhere. The NHS would've been probably the first to pick up on it since Hong Kong was still under the empire then.

Would we have even known about it yet ?

I think it would first be labeled a nasty cold until it reached the geriatric population. Wuhan is on the Yangtze, which means it would have hit Shanghai pretty quickly. From there, it can go anywhere.

30 years ago is 1990, flights, cruises, trains still existed so yes, it would’ve been much worse since reporting would’ve been much slower

Has anyone sent out a survey about remote or Covid-19 job burnout/employee well-being that they can possibly share the template questions with me? I found the results for a survey sent out at Deloitte but didn’t have success at looking at some of the questions that were used. Any help would be incredibly appreciated!

I feel for the jr’s who have started their careers in this remote world, missing out on all the experience that comes with being in an office surrounded by people and creative work instead of the silo of WFH. Any suggestions on how to keep them engaged and learning without it feeling forced with zoom tutorial sessions?

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

Does anyone work primarily out of a coworking space like wework or regus? New job is 100% wfh when not traveling (which is about once a month) and wondering if this would be a good option, since I have a kid on the way and will be harder to WFH.

Husband Relies on Me for Lunch - I know this is dumb, but before the pandemic, my husband ate lunch at the office and I was generally in charge of dinner. He’s super flexible with buying takeout so I never found it annoying. Since the pandemic began though, my husband has begun relying on me to provide him lunch while WFH. I’m busy during the day, and we have different lunch preference schedules. He does not get how annoying it is to me to have to be in charge of his lunch. Am I in the wrong?

I’m a 2nd year civil litigation associate at a mid-sized firm in south Florida. My dream has always been to go in house but was dissuaded by law school professors telling me not to. I’m at a crossroads now because I’m OVER the billing, but my boss and direct team is quite possibly the most amazing and supportive group. My boss is always willing to let us work remote or take vacations. My question is, is the grass greener on the other side? Should I go in house now or wait another 3 years?

Have your firms and companies begin to worry about your new hires over the next 1 to 5 years. Every one from the class of 2020 to the class of 2024 that went to brick & mortar colleges is negatively impacted in their overall education experience. So we should expect those grads to require special care when they join the workplace. We should also expect many tier 3, and some tier 2 universities to also struggle financially as remote learning becomes a more formidable competitor.

Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?
