At first, the children thought they were getting some extra holiday. Now the schools are closing for an extended period of time and the children are stuck at home, with their family, not being able to go and play with their friends. Many of them don’t understand why, and won’t be able to comprehend the time scale that this will endure. Similarly, plenty of young people were studying and/or preparing for tests and exams. Some schools and universities are already switching to online classes and learning systems, but they are scrambling – this is not their core expertise. Also think about the many adults who may be losing their jobs and need to brush up on skills, or even complete retraining for new work in the future.
