Scope

The start of a new decade may have hailed new opportunities for many – a change in career, travel plans, or perhaps a new business venture – but the spread of COVID-19 has largely grounded these ambitions. With roughly half of the world’s population under some form of lockdown as of the 2nd of April 2020, the pandemic is changing the very nature of civilian life. [1] Confined indoors and leaving many without school or work, the outbreak has fostered a global state of anxiety, uncertainty, and confusion – and there’s little knowledge of how long this will last.
