Coronavirus in 2022

Updated on 4 May 2022

With the horrors of the Russian bombardment of Ukraine and the pressure of the economical crisis at home, little attention is being paid to coronavirus at the moment. However, according to the UN’s Economic and Social Affairs, more people died of covid in the United Kingdom than any other country in the World on three days out of the last 14 – more than Brazil, USA, India or Russia. With 508, 646 and 451 deaths in a single day, as the first country to implement vaccinations against covid, it has to be looked at as a matter of concern.

On the plus side daily average cases in the UK have fallen from 89k to 11k in five weeks. While Germany and Italy are reporting 90k and 69k a day and increasing.

Every “expert” is stating the obvious in saying Covid has simply accelerated the inevitable with people working from home, either totally or 60 to 80% of the week; the death of the high street (it won’t die, but it will need to reinvent itself and evolve), and the speeding up of both Chinese and Indian economies overtaking the USA.

A survey of 8,000 adults from eight countries found that UK and US workers showed the highest level of apathy towards going back to the office. 

At ABC Computer Solutions, we are already offering clients support for staff working at home as well as in the office.

Many companies see this as a major restructuring opportunity to turn their backs on the huge costs associated with running an office in the financial centre of Europe, and are looking at turning around the ways their businesses operate.

Fur the time being, there will always be organisations that need hundreds of thousands of square feet in London and in all major cities, but many more that can operate more profitably with a much smaller presence and the huge corporations of today will be very, very different in 2060. Facebook, Apple and Tesla cars will just be a fond memory that pensioners just chat about occasionally.

Today, more so than ever before, cyber security is every network administrator’s primary concern. Many believe only major institutions are targets, however professionals know the main targets are the easier least protected ones. We offer a solution for all SMBs with several protection packages from malware detection to enterprise level protection.
