Is there anything we do not use Zoom for while social distancing measures are in place due to the cornavirus pandemic?

People have taken to the video conferencing platform for meetings, quizzes and generally keeping in touch with family and friends during lockdown.

Danish Superliga club AGF Aarhus used the technology to bring 10,000 fans to the side of their pitch, despite the season being played behind closed doors, on Thursday.

During their 1-1 draw against Randers, AGF installed a giant screen along the side of the pitch, creating what they call “the world’s first virtual grandstand” so fans could support the team for free via Zoom.
