WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — 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.”
