‘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.
