I write an essay about effects of pandemic on people's life. I want to describe remote work or learning online. Should I write:
1.During this pandemic some people works from home.
2.During this pandemic some people are working from home.
the same with:
1.Students learn online.
2.Students are learning online.
When I checked in google, there are more results with Present Continuous tense, but I can't understand why. It's not something that happens now, in this exact moment but it's just a fact that they work/learn like that because of this whole pandemic situation.
