The fast spreading new strain of coronavirus continues to top the headlines across the world. If the numbers are any indication, the virus is here to stay… at least for now. Unfortunately, the statistics on infections and deaths all over the globe, especially in the United States are still staggering.Whether COVID-19 will remain in its present form or mutate to become a seasonal illness is something to be seen well after 2020. One thing is certain, the summer of 2020 won’t be anything like that of last year.The world has changed. Social distancing and self isolation are the new norm ... for now... So, what will happen after quarantine ends?Will people return to their old ways or will they keep a safe 6 ft(1.83 m) in between? Will wearing a mask in public become a typical part of the attire?TAIMI — the world’s first LGBTQI+ dating app and social network believes it is imperative for us to keep communicating during the crisis.

The economic and social impact of the pandemic will be felt for months if not years to come.However, there may be a silver lining here. People may end up changing the way they view our world. Perhaps, some of us will even change their daily habits and actions to leave a lesser carbon footprint.
