The New Us: Social and cultural changes that experts hope will continue post-pandemic

by Stefany Valderrama | Friday, May 8th 2020


Watch Now!:


As we look at the world and our lives impacted by COVID-19, some of the most profound changes we’re experiencing are also some of the most human.

In just a few short weeks, fear of infection has forced us to reshape nearly every aspect of our lives.

“There will be no more handshakes. There are no more hugs. There are no more high-fives,” said Dr. Nesochi Okeke-Igbokwe, Health and Wellness Expert.

It starts at hello. Human interaction is changing at a fundamental level thanks to Coronavirus.

“What we are seeing now is definitely going to move forward into our new normal,” Dr. Okeke-Igbokwe told CBS12 News. “Even a year from now, two years from now, people are going to be reluctant to even give that handshake and it’s going to be understandable because things have changed as a result of this pandemic.”

13 Things You Shouldn’t Try to Do Yourself During Quarantine

Self-diagnosing medical conditions:

There’s a reason health care workers are essential! Nesochi Okeke-Igbokwe, M.D., warns that trying to diagnose, and, especially, treat, a health condition yourself can always be dangerous. Yes, right now you may—rightly—be reluctant to actually go to the doctor or urgent care and add to any burden on the health system. But that doesn’t mean you should self-diagnose. If you have a genuine pressing concern about your health, you can still call your doctor. “Keep in mind that most doctors are offering virtual telemedicine services and many health insurance carriers are even waiving co-pays for these telehealth visits during the coronavirus pandemic,” Dr. Okeke-Igbokwe says. “So if you have a health concern, you should touch base with your doctor.”

13 Everyday Habits That Could (and Should) Change Forever After Coronavirus

“In this new era of the coronavirus and the practice of social distancing, there will undoubtedly be a cultural shift in the way we all greet one another,” Nesochi Okeke-Igbokwe, MD, an internist and health expert, tells Reader’s Digest. “Shaking hands, high fives, hugs, and kisses are modes of greeting to be abandoned at this point. Social greetings may now entail a hand on the heart, a head nod, or pretty much any action that enables one to avoid direct touch or contact.”

    Thank you Dr. Nesochi. I remember seeing your “end of the world” post at the beginning of the month. So prescient. Now, with all the uncertainty, it is so reassuring to hear your advice and information on the novel COVID. God Bless you.
