Since the Covid-19 quickly spread around the world in March, our cities have been experiencing drastic changes in terms of varied aspects that directly or indirectly impact our life. People who live in the city are forced to leave their social life in normal forms- pubs, restaurants, and parties, while one of the groups suffered the most severe damages to their habitual life- elder people. Since the mid-March, the British government has issued a serial of restrictions to limit social contacts between people, including an extreme ‘Shielding’ scheme to make most of elder people stay indoors and be apart from their families. Even though technology helps to bridge seniors and their loved ones, they still lose encouraging hugs, sweet kisses, and even chances to breathe fresh air outdoors and enjoy green spaces. Intergenerational activities and freedom to access to public spaces are ruthlessly seized by the deadly virus overnight, though all these measures are reluctant actions for both the government and individuals. However, we firmly believe this crisis could be defeated by us soon regarding to the quick development of vaccines.
