Coronavirus and the Efficiency of Working From Home

Right now, one of the most discussed topics catching worldwide attention is Coronavirus. The fast spread of the virus in China, and its rapid emergence in countries like the US and Italy have all raised the necessity of working or studying at home. Remote work/ study decreases the risk of being exposed to cross-infection, and saves the limited public resources to people who really need them. Giant tech firms in Seattle and financial firms in New York have started to practice company-wise remote work.
