The coronavirus and the measures to prevent its spread have a huge impact on the daily lives of normal citizens all over the world. An unprecedented amount of people are now living in self-isolation, and have quarantined themselves in their houses. In many cases only left with the view from their window as their main connection to the outside world. What does this do to people that are normally free to go wherever they want, what are the changes that are brought to their daily life, social relations, and mental health?
Since the outbreak started in Wuhan, China, and continued spreading in a growing number of other locations internationally, including Italy, United States and Iran over the past months, many citizens have been called to change their habits and adapt to this emergency by following strict measures, such as home-staying, travel restrictions and highly hygienic norms. Data, testimonies and information are spreading like wildfire around the internet.
