There’s no doubt that your inbox and newsfeed are bombarded with warnings, updates, and fears about the Coronavirus threat. Everyone is under difficult situations of staying informed, panicky, or slightly anxious. These feelings are understandable though, it’s hard to stay optimistic with the uncertainty the virus has brought us.
For now, if there’s one thing that would help everyone, it is to trust the government. The way how the government shifts and responds in urban operation is quite commendable so far.
Take the example of having to shift to drop off and pick up. Such changes prove to be beneficial in the long term to minimize the transmission of the virus. However, this would mean more autonomous vehicles to occupy on curbside spaces. Hence, city architecs and designers should adapt and support changes in urban mobility.
