In an interview with Andrew Ross Sorkin during the New York Times' Dealbook conference, Bill Gates said that he predicts that 50% of business travel and 30% of days in the office will disappear in a post-coronavirus world.

Gates went on to say that he believes that there will be a "very high threshold" for doing business trips now that working from home has become the norm. Additionally, Gates says that there will be companies on both ends of the spectrum - ones that won't be doing any business trips and will opt for virtual meetings, and ones that will continue to prefer in-person meetings.
