If you haven’t been hiding under a rock, you’re probably familiar with the coronavirus pandemic and the terrible damage it has done to humanity. The majority of the world’s population is confined, but social distancing will end at some point, and we will all continue to live our normal lives. It looks like a pretty logical sequence of events. Right? Well, there are some things the media isn’t focusing on right now. Below are three terrifying events that are likely to occur in most parts of the world after the peak of the pandemic ends.
3 terrifying events that no one expects after the end of the coronavirus pandemic
Terrifying Event 1: Crime Rates Will Rise Drastically
A global recession is accompanied by widespread poverty, which will likely lead to a dramatic increase in crime rates in different parts of the world. In the United States, the coming recession is expected to push the unemployment rate up to 15%. If we look at history, during the Great Depression, due to the unavailability of legitimate work, illegal activities prevailed in the United States. The same phenomenon occurred during the dotcom crisis.
Terrifying Event 2: Pandemics will become a new normal
With the death toll rising in America, Europe and Asia, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic highlights the vulnerability of human systems. The death toll may plant a seed in the minds of bad actors by highlighting an effective way to eliminate humans on a global scale. For example, why would terrorists think of plotting a bomb that can kill thousands of people, if these bad guys can destroy hundreds of thousands of human lives with a “silent killer?” The current pandemic is just the tip of an iceberg lurking beneath calm waters.
Terrifying Event 3: Mental instability will be on the rise
Even before the current pandemic, electronic devices brought a lot of “social distancing” into people’s lives. The increase in the use of social media can cause an increase in the number of suicides. With more isolation, a whole new set of problems will likely arise. Mentally vulnerable people will be hit hard. Unfortunately, social isolation, which leads to feelings of loneliness and fear, will increase the death rate around the world. These deaths will likely take the form of suicides and shootings.
