Cities have been a culmination of all the good things we desire to be in a comfortable habitat. This culmination has brought access to not only services but this vast human-to-human network that eventually lead to evolving as knowledge hubs. This pandemic, however, has changed the fundamental perception of a city in many ways and especially the density it offers.

These times also revealed how poorly our indoors and neighborhoods are prepared for a pandemic level threat.
