Yes, the coronavirus pandemic sucks, but people have managed to find a few ‘silver linings’ during the crisis.
I can say that for me, personally, one thing I’ve found is that I’m much more efficient when working from home. I almost always get everything done on my daily to-do list, mostly because there are very little distractions to deal with. I find it easy to stay on task and focus while working remotely.
