As the country adjusts to life under siege, accepting temperature checks and protective masks as prerequisites to enjoying public spaces, many are wondering what their “new normal” will be like when the crisis is past. “Who are you looking forward to seeing most when the disease is over?” asked a recent thread on question-and-answer app Zhihu. “Myself, under my own routine,” one user answered.
