Reflections on the Pandemic in the Future of the World

Sociological Remaining of Outbreak and Globalization between Evocation and Oblivion

COVID-19 pandemic, which the world has faced since the end of 1919, has been an event that uniquely influenced the whole world at the same time, unlike other epidemics and social and natural disasters in the past. This epidemic was felt on a global scale because it is a consequence of the risks involved or produced by globalization. Without an environment called globalization, it would not be possible for this epidemic to spread to the whole sphere so quickly. However, this epidemic also has a dimension that tests all the possibilities of globalization and the risks involved. It is said that the world will no longer be what it used to be after the closure experience in the world in the face of this epidemic that does not distinguish any color, language, poverty, richness or country. How will the world be after the corona? Will everything change drastically? Will we witness radical changes in the nature of our social relationships, international relationships, and even forms of religiousness? We are faced with a serious memory phenomenon when these questions are compared to similar outbreaks like Spanish Flu, in the past. How much does one keep in mind and what are the dynamics that make up the social memory? This article seeks to answer all these questions.
