The new novel coronavirus pandemic has swept through the world, and forced people to be socially-distant and confined within their homes.

While prejudice against people with the disease, and racism against Asians have drastically increased, the world is finally beginning to live with the reality of the disease: economies are slowly restarting, and people are finally coming out of their homes.

However, lives are resuming keeping the invisible infection in mind - people are wearing masks and social-distancing.

In France, schools, including primary ones are re-opening. A picture from one of the schools, posted by Lionel Top, a TV journalist in France, showed how children were put in literal chalk boxes for playtime, and asked to social distance.


"To ensure respect for distances, while taking advantage of recreation, the teaching team drew squares on the ground for the little ones," he wrote. "The children play, dance, jump, laugh together ... but from this square. From what we have seen, they do not view it as a punishment."

Soon, the picture of kids being separated by chalk outline of boxes started going viral on Twitter, with people finding it eerily similar to imagined dystopias.






As scary and dystopian as it is, it is probably what our futures will look like - until there is a vaccine or coronavirus is eradicated completely.
