Top Ten Most Important Occupations During the COVID-19 OutbreakWith many many people being in quarantine and such, it's hard to tell what kinds of people HAVE to be outside. Basically you should know which occupations, professions, and jobs are not only trying to keep people safe and healthy, but also which ones are the most important, and this list covers them.
The Top Ten
Why is electrician the #1? Simple, because A LOT OF PEOPLE DEPEND ON TECHNOLOGY. If the power were to go out, it is their responsibility to ensure that it stays on again. And this ties in to other important occupations that would be on this list as well. Because guess what those occupations will likely depend on electricity to work. Doctors in particular have been using many computers for their medical work and they obviously need the power to stay up, which is why the Electrician is the single most important job. - NuMetalManiak
DOCTORS AND NURSES are by far the most important occupations during the COVID-19 pandemic. THEY TREAT AND SAVE LIVES, not electricians.
How do you expect doctors and nurses to do their job WITHOUT ELECTRICITY? They would have to go back to the stone-age practices, which are not as effective as the more modern medical treatment that came with electricity and technology. - NuMetalManiak
Since many people are gonna be staying at home, they're reliant on not just electricity, but all their basic needs, notably water and heating. Maintenance workers in public works such as water and heating are just as important as the electricians. - NuMetalManiak
Well, obviously. They risk their lives to ensure the infected stay healthy and learn exactly all the issue with Covid-19. They are the most at risk when you think about it, but they try to treat others to make sure that quarantined patients can survive and recover. - NuMetalManiak
I would say the doctors are the most important, but electricians are a close second. - 2storm
how would the doctors be able to perform their doctoral duties? Especially at night? That's why Electricians need to keep the power up. - NuMetalManiak
With all the people panic buying, one thing can be said in hindsight. How do the stores restock? They need stockers, but stockers also need truck drivers. IF THOSE TRUCK DRIVERS EVER STOPPED DELIVERING THE MUCH NEEDED GOODS IT REALLY WOULD MEAN THE END. It's that important. They risk high volumes of traffic going to their destinations and all. - NuMetalManiak
Usually these are the grocery store workers, but these guys are the other half keeping supermarkets alive, not necessarily the cashiers. The stockers work in tandem with the drivers who unload their supplies, and the stockers put them on the shelves. It's up to both of these to keep stores running. - NuMetalManiak
In many ways this is a given, as we all know how irrational some people can be during a crisis. Things get out of hand, an officer should be dealing with them swiftly, but also safely. - NuMetalManiak
The often underpaid janitor/housekeeping duty almost never gets respect, but let's face it, without a janitor to keep a place clean, areas will likely either be avoided, or condemned altogether. The janitors out there deserve a lot of respect, as they WILL get dirty in order to keep things tidy. - NuMetalManiak
Well, there's not a lot of real medicine that can combat the coronavirus but the symptoms can be fought with the proper prescription medicine for them. And that's where the pharmacists come into play. They've always been reliable, even if their pharmacies tend to have their shelves emptied quickly just like grocery stores and their lines long. - NuMetalManiak
Normally a nurse is very often associated with a doctor occupation, but I speak of nurses at nursing homes, where the elderly reside. With many, many nursing homes under lockdown, plus doctors inside each one, the nurses all try their hardest to ensure that the elderly patients in the nursing homes are kept safe and friendly. For them, it's actually harder than being an actual doctor. They are just as exposed to illness as regular doctors are. - NuMetalManiak
Obviously, doctors and nurses are by far the most important occupations during the Coronavirus pandemic. They're far more important than every other occupation.
An easy given. We all know they have it rough by ensuring shady individuals aren't doing terrorist activities overseas and what not, but with coronavirus spreading like crazy it's become even more blatant how important their occupation is. They know that airplanes will be congested, and will have to explain who can fly and who can't. - NuMetalManiak
We need a good president to lead us out of this. Particulary one that is NOT an arrogant ignorant.
