Generation C / Generation COVID

I am not usually writing on this kind of topics, I am obviously not an expert in demography or social sciences but this idea has been in my head for a couple of days.

The COVID-19 has drawn a line, today we can say that there are a pre-COVID19 and a post-COVID19 eras.

This situation is completely new for the western countries, Europe and America.

The changes that our society will suffer are still unknown.

It may be the case that nothing changes and in some months, years everything is as it was but on the other hand it may be also possible that many things change although I guess it will be specially all around social distance, self-protection and prevention.

It is still quite weird to see people in Spain wearing protection masks in the streets or in the supermarkets, we are still not used to it.

There is a generation of girls and boys with no more than 4-5 years old that will not know or will not remember how life was before February/March 2020, just before the COVID-19 pandemic.

They will consider as normal to wear a mask, they will not think people are paranoid when next new virus arrives and people gets nervous, will not collapse if our Government requires the whole country to stay at home for close to two months, … they will live the new normal as their normal lives.

They are sharing those characteristics, they are a clear demographic cohort, they will assume as normal what is being completely shocking for us.

They are born in the 21th Century as the Generation Alpha but they clearly are a different generation from people born in 2005 or 2010 that will clearly remember this COVID-19 event and how life was before.

I really think that this event will create the Generation C or Generation COVID including people born after 2015, but time will say.
