Six months into the COVID-19 pandemic, non-face-to-face interactions have settled in to become an inseparable part of our lives, from virtual summit meetings to work-from-home policies and automated services. While some have underscored the benefits of these modern comforts, others have expressed concern over the psychological repercussions of isolation and the lack of people-to-people contact. We sit down with our panel of experts to talk more about the wide-ranging mental health and social impact of non-face-to-face interactions. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic has also prompted many schools to hold virtual classes, and the same has been true in the world of sports, where athletes are keeping themselves fit in isolation instead of on the training ground. We take a closer look at how the Korea Handball Association is holding its training sessions virtually amid the pandemic.
