7:16 am
like any information on the coronavirus or any other science topic you should really check out our podcast so you can get it wherever you get your podcasts you can also find us and. science. this is due to abuse covert 900 special from berlin the corona virus has forced millions of people into quarantine and isolation that means millions of people are working from home some for the 1st time we take a look at how people cope with working from home and we ask an expert how the crisis might change how we work for good. i'm sumi so much going to thank you for joining us people all over the world are working from home that includes many of my colleagues here at the view our reporter sent us
7:17 am
a report from her apartment in berlin where she set up her temporary office and she has some tips on how to make it work. no our. task should be in the office right now here are. on how to actually go from her. no was easy today take a shower put some actual clothes of. all the. great time to. this may sound super all here but i haven't gotten my microsoft teams to work the entire day right from my mistakes missed sure if anything were to prove past this thing.
7:18 am
i know it's super tempting but it's a separate clean quiet workspace away from distraction. are now it's easy for me to say because i don't have kids my only distraction is my thing even t.v. isn't even good on the fridge and the laundry and the dishes and the book. to get my point. yes that means you might have to look presentable. talking face to face isn't the best way to the only alive. and happy hour can be a gradual to. sleep while you usually be commuting cooped yourself in family life. finally block out the big reveal you think well let's. just hope that your top of those of us who are
7:19 am
privileged enough to still on money and do things on the think you know about her we should make the. let's speak now to norbert to crow now he's a researcher from the university of potsdam studying how people work from home number thank you for joining us 1st of all what do you think of those tips you know don't work from bad stay in touch on video conference you have anything to add there. yeah this is not only an advantage but it might also be acquired so you should visit our to see cause all travel times are no go on and immediately be replaced by another your conference not to talk of rest and another call this all the work and density is that's why science on it is much higher and typical of this work where you have to walk from one meeting room to a not go where you can walk to the contrary are or have a break as
7:20 am
a watercooler all the coffee machine that's all no longer possible all right so you also points out you might have more time a clock then you're saying i mean looking at the fact that millions of people are now in their home offices essentially what if you found i mean how does this change the way we work are we more productive are we less productive at home. well in some cases it depends in some cases we on wall productive because now we can't exactly see what the other colleagues talking about because we have our points alliance crystal clear all the key you know it's crystal clear on the screen not 8 meters away and got going through and that's an advantage but on the other hand what we are focusing on in our research is that creative and knowledge intensive process is in it isn't isness they need the new ness of people that can't work in
7:21 am
the same manner are online and in digital meeting rooms and therefore we are missing something so we to the day we had with my research us virtual lunch break everybody said in front of his camera and eat something and try something i just love the same if you cannot achieve the knowledge transfer between a video screens you need the near miss off persons and right in some all the noise intense processes we have 75 percent of most runs throughout i socialize ation by personal meeting between persons and all but you know what all of this is all for how do you think this will fundamentally change the way that we work will more people stay with working from home permanently. i don't think so i think some tasks can be done remotely and some other tasks will need
7:22 am
a personal meeting and it will be resumed in full when we are able to travel again i think that won't change a lot all right nor had only pointed to this in her posts ok we'll have to leave it there in numbers right now from the university of potsdam thank you so much for joining us. and we will be following this story closely at g.w. our social media editors will be reporting weekly and we want to know how you are coping with working from home where. new to this crane your mind boggling situation spiders is an old influenza we. unchartered territory all life as we know it is changing. but we're all in this together in this new series we want to find out how to handle

on new lives in times of the corona pandemic thankfully with the help of a leading expert it seems like it's been a very popular study how do we stay mentally and physically healthy how do we have no family and all partners without driving into a completely insane. fest up how to deal with cabin fever. the how are you dealing with being cooped up let me know leave a comment and i'd love to profit from your experiences for our upcoming episode. well we asked you to send us some of your questions on the cover 1000 pandemic and many of you did get in touch our science correspondent dirk williams has some answers take a look. why did you come from. to the best of our knowledge the 1st cases of covert 19 appeared in the chinese city of
7:24 am
rouhani back in december of 2019 they were closely associated with the wildlife market they are now coronaviruses can jump from animals to humans and we think that that's what happened here at the sars virus that the same back in 2000 here in 2003 it was traced back to bats the civets sold in wildlife markets we don't yet know what animals might have acted as intermediaries here but we have seen very similar coronaviruses and bats and we think that they are the ultimate reservoir in the wild. how does it spread. that 19 is a pretty infectious respiratory disease that spread by droplets of saliva or discharge from the nervous someone when they cough or sneeze that's why it's important to stay at least a metre away and preferably farther from anyone who's coughing or sneezing it
7:25 am
doesn't stay airborne for very long we don't think but it can remain infectious after landing on surfaces which is why you also need to pay attention to how often you wash your hands and you should try not to touch your face as much as possible. how do i know if i'm in fact it. we only way to know for sure if you have copd at night has to take a test because many of the symptoms are similar to those people experience when they have other respiratory ailments like the flu in covert 19 the primary symptoms that people have reported are fever dry cough and fatigue and then to a lesser extent things like congestion a sore throat or diarrhea some people who catch the disease don't have any symptoms at all their ace. symptomatic around 4 in 5 people who get it will recover from the disease without any special treatment or having to go to the hospital. what can i
7:26 am
do if i'm in fact it. because this virus is and novel one in humans no one has any immunity the 1st time they catch it even if someone doesn't show any symptoms they still grow in fact it and can in fact others we don't yet have any specific vaccines to prevent covert 19 and we don't have any medications to treat it so at this point if you are infected there's no way to interrupt the course of the disease the best thing to do if you're infected it's a talk with your local medical authorities and follow their advice if you aren't in a high risk group for the disease the chances are very good you will return to full health within a couple of weeks. if i thought it was going i catch it again in the future. because this is a new virus we still don't know much about how the immune system well reacts to subsequent infections with copd at 19. doctors assume that catching at will give
7:27 am
you some kind of immunity but a big question is exactly how long that immunity well last hour immunity levels to related coronaviruses like some that cause common colds are not permanent and we don't really know why the question of immunity is a question that really only time will answer. a news team that the austrian public broadcaster o. r. f. will go into voluntary isolation to prevent any of them from becoming infected now they'll be isolated on site in vienna they've all tested negative for the virus and no one will be allowed in the door will be guarded and food will be delivered these 180 employees will guarantee that new services continue to run an interrupted oh r.f. is not the only austrian company to seal off key chains of staff last week around 50 healthy employees from the main energy company were isolated within certain
