People are always resilient in facing adversity. The will to survive has been encoded in our DNA ever since we first breathed it. It is this tenacity that has brought us great discoveries throughout our life, from the invention of the wheel to the development of the Covid-19 vaccine, which Homo sapiens is truly a species. genius is designed to withstand the toughest of conditions.
Take the example of creation Covid-19 Vaccine, if not for the sudden emergency and economic downturn, would take about ten years before it could be green-lit and used for anyone. Scientists around the world have been working around the clock to decode the genetic makeup of the virus so they can move on to the next stage as soon as possible. Joining in the fight against the malicious virus is the international community – in the form of monetary and spiritual aid.
It is in these difficult times that humans are most creative with their solutions to the myriad of restrictions imposed by the government. One of those innovations is creation mask with transparent plastic window covering the mouthAlthough it may not seem like a revolutionary invention, this new mask is a godsend to the deaf community because of the usual markings covering the lips, making it unreadable. each. Another interesting invention, born of the need to maintain social alienation, is the birth of a robot dog, programmed to remind pedestrians of the need to be separated. Robots have been at the forefront of fighting the current pandemic, from using them for delivery as seen in countries like the UK and the US to taking care of patients in hospitals, thereby protecting and releasing staff. medical.
In a more recent development, a group in the Netherlands created Urban sun, designed to disinfect the public spaces of coronavirus and finally, “[combat] Studio Roosegaarde, author of Urban Sun, said the negative impact of social isolation is aimed at improving cultural gatherings, sporting events, public squares and school grounds.
Harnessing the power of light to kill bacteria and viruses is a common practice among people working in the medical industry. But the disinfection process will eliminate any human being because the light source, UV rays, can be harmful when exposed for a long time. This is not the case with Urban Lamp, which uses new far-away UVC light to safely destroy pathogens. Intensive studies have been done in the design of the Urban Sun and the specific lighting used has met the necessary safety standards, so the project is considered safe to do.
Talking about this new project, the chairman of the Council for Community & Social Health, Jet Bussemaker, said, “It was very inspiring. Everyone is tired [Covid-19]. What we need is the courage to find new solutions, to communicate with each other and create some intimacy. That’s what Urban Sun is doing ”.
In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “We have the strength that we overcame.” I believe this is a fitting description of our current situation with a pandemic. It is through such challenges that we discover our hidden potential and the power to overcome and become stronger than before. Innovation is an indispensable factor in driving our society forward, besides only creating new and novel ways, it is important to break conventional chains and make the leap forward. that giant.
