‘When coronavirus is over…’ Twitter users share their plans for the future
In an effort to keep spirits up amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, Twitter users are sharing their plans for when it’s all over
What are you most looking forward to when this pandemic ends? People around the world have been taking to Twitter to share their plans for the future using the hashtag #WhenCoronavirusIsOver.
Some of them intend to marry their beloveds because they’ve realised “life is too short”. One grandmother said she can’t wait to hug her grandchildren, and many others have said they’ll never take hugs and kisses for granted again.
“When all this is over, I’ll never take for granted a handshake with a stranger or a hug from a friend. I will appreciate full shelves at the supermarket and pharmacy,” one Twitter user shared, “and I will be grateful for live sport and appreciate the roar of the crowds in the stadiums.”
Many others have added they will no longer underappreciate essential workers, from frontline healthcare staff to supermarket employees. The consensus is these key workers kept us all going, and their efforts will not be forgotten.

After this corona virus, let’s think that it is our second life. God grant us another chance to accept, embrace and love life. Let’s not waste time anymore. Do the things that make you happy. Apologize to the people you hurt and live happily. #WhenCoronaVirusIsOver

#WhenCoronaVirusIsOver we will realise that mansions, branded clothing, expensive jewelry, social status, bank balances and job titles NEVER have, NEVER are and NEVER will be more valuable than life. The gift of life trumps any earthly accolades.

When all this is over, I’ll never again take for granted a handshake with a stranger or a hug from a friend. I will appreciate full shelves at the supermarket & pharmacy. I will be grateful for live sport & appreciate the roar of the crowds in the stadiums. #coronavirus #Covid_19
