The second wave of COVID-19 has us locked up in our homes once more, and for the time being, this is the only measure we can take. We are mindful of the internet’s uses in 2021 that are assisting us in coping with the pandemic.
The majority of our work has taken on a virtual form, and the internet plays an important role in this. So, how is the internet assisting in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021? Let’s get this party started.
Although we must maintain physical distance due to the circumstances, we should reduce the emotional distance in the meantime. The internet allows us to connect with and reach out to our loved ones.
It allows us to express our emotions, opinions, and ideas. On social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Viber, and others, the internet makes it simple to communicate with people. Video conferencing/online meeting applications are also being worked on by the company. We now have a shared forum for formal and informal communication thanks to the internet.
Fitness, both physical and mental
On the internet, there are a number of resources that will assist us in preserving our physical and mental health. They’re available for free on YouTube and other websites.
To keep your body energized, you can do some light exercises like stretching and breathing exercises. For mental health, you can also listen to spiritual podcasts. Watch spiritual gurus’ motivational videos to learn more about life.
We are unable to go outside and buy products due to the lockout restrictions. Essentials, on the other hand, can be purchased online. There are many online shopping sites that deliver essentials to our doorsteps while maintaining safety precautions.
Foodmandu and Pathao, for example, are online food distribution sites that deliver food to your door. To buy medicines, you can also contact online pharmacies such as 24 seven, ATM Pharmacy, and Online Aushadhi. They also provide a delivery service to your house.
Helpline for Emergencies
Coronavirus is a virus that affects all. As a result, we should all be ready for whatever the future brings. Some platforms allow you to communicate with doctors for online consultations. We should also be aware of emergency phone numbers, local hospitals, physicians, medications, beds, oxygen, and other important information.
On the internet, the Ministry of Health and Population of Nepal has established an emergency helpline for COVID19. Do not be alarmed if you have contracted COVID-19. Maintain your composure and seek assistance via the MoHP’s emergency helpline. You will be attended to and cared for right away.
There are many channels where you can get the help you need in an emergency. Covid Connect Nepal is one such network. There are also several Facebook groups that provide this type of assistance.
We can get news from all over the world thanks to the internet. It is the information and news portal that is vulnerable to forgery. COVID-19 is the subject of some misleading information being circulated by some sources.
For authentic news and alerts, we must only follow and believe authentic sources. Don’t be fooled by fake news, and don’t spread it by posting it on social media. We can use the internet to get positive information and broaden our horizons.
Make the most of your talent
During lockout, you can have a lot of free time, so what do you do about it? You will most likely make good use of the internet to improve your skills.
You should possibly brace yourself for a job after the lockdown if you wish to get one. You can learn new skills and acquire new knowledge by reading ebooks on the internet. You will participate in online seminars and courses. It will assist you in honing your skills and expanding your network.
Games and Entertainment
This is the time of year when you can sit at home, think about nothing, and play games like you did when you were a kid. Playing video games allows you to relive your childhood. Invite your mates to join you in the game and have a fun time with them. Connecting with friends and having fun on the internet are also good ways to pass the time and relieve stress.
During the lockdown, the internet can be a good place to make money. To make money, you can start a business or do online work. Create websites, Facebook pages, Instagram pages, and YouTube channels to begin. You can improve your work and gain customers on virtual channels with the aid of digital marketing, SEO, SEM, advertising, and content marketing. You can either make an active or passive income from it until the lockout is lifted.
If you want to help provide funding to COVID-19 patients, you can do so by collecting funds on the internet. Organize charity shows, seminars, sell goods, and make a donation to the COVID-19 victims. Simply post your digital wallet, payment processing account, or bank account information on the internet and in fundraiser groups to raise funds for a variety of charities or to personally assist vulnerable patients/families. While sitting at home, you will potentially save lives.
The internet can be useful in this way during a pandemic. You don’t have to go outside if you see anything. You should stay inside and work on something you’re passionate about. Things are a lot easier to do now that we have internet access. At the tip of your finger, you have access to vast resources. All you have to do now is use it wisely.
