Posted in: With so much media coverage of the coronavirus and medical professionals and governments sometimes giving conflicting advice, what advice would you give to people suffering anxiety and depression? What are you doing in your daily life to get through this crisis? See in context
Stop reading the news. Spend time with your family. Evaluate & prioritize that which is most important in your life.

The WHO has already reported that the virus will likely be endemic. People need to understand the difference and the media needs to stop using "pandemic" to scare everywhere and get clicks with sensational headlines. Prepare for the strong likelihood of annual infections/season just like flu season.
To the point, I believe tourism will slowly return to it's post highs of 2019. People have remarkable short term/selective memories.

Considering there may not even be a "wheel" in front of you, I'd say yes. That said, the fun of "being at the wheel" will simply be replaced by something else; like the experience of being chauffeured by an auto driving system in your car.

Posted in: The Japanese government has appointed a minister for loneliness to deal with issues brought about by the coronavirus, among things. The British government also appointed such a minister. Is loneliness something a government can deal with? See in context
In short, no.
@TrevorPeace... well said!
@kyushubill... spot on!
The government is not responsible for people's happiness or in this case loneliness. This is a personal and familial issue.
If you agree this is the government's responsibility, then ask yourself, "Is the government also responsible for finding me a boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse?"
Naturally nearly all people would reply, "of course not."
The best they can do is have a low deductible for going to the psychiatrist if one requires professional help to overcome their loneliness.
