There is always hope that the coming New Year would give us better opportunities to improve our lives and enjoy every minute of it. Some people may have already planned a bunch of events in the first half of 2020 as some sort of jumpstarter. Having parties and celebrations is the best way to give ourselves a boost to get through daily challenges as there is a couple of events that we are looking forward to attend after straight weeks of hardwork.
Unfortunately, it seems like Mother Earth has other plans for us with the emergence of a deadly novel coronavirus. Formally known as SARS-CoV-2, the virus originated in Wuhan, China sometime in late 2019, then became successful in spreading to major populations around the world. The coronavirus disease of 2019 or COVID-19 has already been declared a pandemic, forcing the shut down of cities in every continent. This is bad news for people who are eager to go to events where they can enjoy and relieve their stress as the way to curb the spread of COVID-19 is to practice social distancing. This means that events or any form of mass gatherings are prohibited.
Who Says Fun Events Or Meet-Ups Can’t Happen In A Pandemic Setting?
There is thing thing called flattening the curve that public health experts are telling us to achieve amid the COVID-19 pandemic. This means that we have the decrease the rate of infection so that someday there will be no more new reported cases of COVID-19 infection, and the active cases will go down. To do so, everyone must practice social distancing. In this case, parties and events are forbidden. While this sucks for those people who loves to go to fun parties, cancelling events in a pandemic is just important for the sake of saving lives.
However, thanks to the internet, people will not have to suffer being alone in their room and starve from social interaction. Why not host an online-based event where you can still have fun and mingle with a bunch of your friends like you are just hanging out altogether in an actual party?
Of course, as a host of an online event, you must make sure that you have stable internet connection, as well as a very reliable app where you and your mutuals will meet. You might also need an IPTV so that you can have a nice view of your huge online gathering.
