The pandemic has left humans and companies with mixed feelings. It has been anguish to a lot of people and companies, as people have lost their job and firms have filed for bankruptcy.

In a few cases, the pandemic has benefitted some people, especially those that demand for the service increased tremendously during the period, thereby leading to higher pay, as well as companies that ticked the right boxes. Below are some effects of the pandemic.

Remote work
