What If Social Media didn’t exist during the Coronavirus Pandemic?

The Bad and Ugly and the Good.

As the coronavirus pandemic ravages on, it’s very hard to steer away from the horrid situation it has bestowed upon the face of the earth. From countries going into total lockdowns which may last till 2021, a forecast on hefty losses due to a long-term closure of business to an impending blow to economies across the globe.

The Bad & Ugly

In the midst of the pandemic and it’s rapid spread across the globe lies a big problem before us. The spread of information is faster than COVID-19 itself; From conspiracy theories, a vile pile of truths and lies, sensational reporting about the situation by both reputable and louche media houses and journalists, the masses that have taken to social media to share unfiltered information at the speed of light leaving the world at the edge.

The GOOD!

The most important string of hope that’s still holding the world together as everything seems to fall apart is social media. Various platforms have continued to play an important role in the dissemination of information during the outbreak of coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

Stay Safe, Stay Home.
