On the day when the number of the people infected by the Coronavirus in the world has passed one million, the state of emergency is still active in Serbia, and its citizens are still uncertain when they will be able to return to their normal activities. Everyone organizes their time in the way so that it can be used as much as possible. Ljubica Kapor, an architect, is trying to make the most of her time. She dedicates herself to the things she normally didn’t have time for, such as reading and socializing with her family and loved ones. After almost ten years, she restarted to play the piano.
When it comes to work, she says there is more of it than before. She takes very seriously the recommendations of doctors and experts in the fields of medicine and epidemiology and tries to be responsible towards herself and towards others. Social distancing is not that easy. The hardest thing for her is the feeling of helplessness and fear she can see in the eyes of the people she meets.
As soon as the situation caused by the coronavirus is over, Ljubica will return to her driving tests and trainings first, and then to her other activities.
