The wealth fund mostly signed a $ 5 billion deal with the new China. In China, which has completed the Covid process, businesses started producing between 50-75%. The outbreak will end, but this fight will not end. A newly built China is waiting for us. Since China was 100 days ahead between the first case and other countries, it created its infrastructure accordingly. And in the next period, other countries need to be fast and strategic to keep up with 100 days of China in this recovery process. ”
Deniz Country Arıboğan: We will either adapt and change or delete
Evaluating the effects of the Covid-19 epidemic on people and society, Deniz Ülke Arıboğan made the following explanations: “The world has forgotten values such as human rights, morality and ethics for a long time and everyone has become self-thinking. When it was epidemic, people became much more inward. States are the main provider mechanism in such situations. People seek democracy and freedom, not security. Today, our houses have become prison. It is the first time we see the threat and we have gone from anxiety to fear. We witnessed the death of our grandparents in the homes. For the first time in the last 10-15 years, we cannot take our dead from home to the cemetery. There is a hospital period. There is also a great distrust because we think everyone around us may be carrying the virus. So everything that will bring us closer to death, actually everything we love. It was the first time we fled and what we liked most was presented to us in packages. That's why people need shelter in something. We can't stop the time. We will either change, adapt, or delete over time. We cannot escape change. Technology is a tool in this regard. Our age group could not go online without an epidemic. But now all teachers are learning everything online. Even the cardinals are at this point. People will use the online as a tool and work 2-3 hours a day to actually do enough work, the rest will be creative and socialized. Philosophy, sociology, history, anthropology will be very important. Data will be collected, these people will analyze the collected data. We must turn to multidimensional, multicultural, interdisciplinary thinking. All the moments of jamming are the time of humanity's leap at the same time. Pablo Neruda said that even if you cut off all the flowers, you cannot prevent spring from coming. This spring will come to this country. This will pass too ”.
