From the Introduction: "As we sit at home pondering the future, we tend to talk about 'getting back to normal'; as if there will come a point in the near future where COVID19 [coronavirus disease 2019] clouds will lift, disappear and life will be as it was: industries will restart, people will go back to their employ, stopping at a convenient barista for their double espresso. Reality will be very different I suspect. Pandemics have a tendency to linger for a substantial time with a series of successive waves, some more deadly than those before and, unless and until, an effective vaccine is found and administered, certain parts of the population will be at great risk. This article aims to explore what the world might be like and what are the key pressures that will shape our world in the decades to come."
