    I think there will be a social  change in the way people get their exercise.  Before the virus lots of people went to the gym but now lots of gyms are closed so people are finding other ways to get their exercise. I watched a  clip of a guy putting a little cooking oil on a tile floor in front of a counter - then he put his hands on the counter and started walking (it was like a treadmill). People are also working around the  house to get their exercise. Right now the grave, mulch and topsoil  businesses are booming so maybe after a day of wheelbarrow work folks will start thinking that it was the best work out that they have had in years - quit the gym and start doing  their workouts around the house. Cheers!

    I suspect people may be a little happier to just stand next to each other.

    I live in New York City - population around 8.5 million.  You can't swing a dead cat without hitting someone.  The one great thing about this virus is that we all have to stand farther apart from each other.
