How coronavirus is moving global life online
Millions of people worldwide are having to embrace life under lockdown - confined to their own four walls or neighborhoods for weeks on end as countries battle to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

This new way of living poses huge challenges. Teaching, working and socializing have moved online as never before. The lockdown has also prompted some people to reassess their lives and what is most important to them, bringing unexpected realizations and touching moments with their families.

"I thought it would be interesting to give them some specific dance lessons. Not like the ones I am seeing being live streamed publicly on Instagram.

"I don't think it can totally replace the traditional service of the mass... it becomes very individual. So you lose the sense of community," Wong said. "[Online mass is] the best solution we have at this moment. But I hope after the coronavirus situation we can all resume the service very quickly because a lot of parishioners have been debating, arguing and saying they have missed the service.

"I miss everyday life. It all feels more special now. Before the coronavirus came, I went out everyday and would meet people all the time.
