When the end of the Covid-19 remains a big question mark, people choose to stay at home and avoid physical contact. It’s undeniable that Covid-19 has hit hard into our lives and shift the behaviors across regions. Over the previous months, there are 4 things proved to be permanently changed even if this ends.
