There’s working in your pajamas. Trouser-less Zoom sessions. The absence of road rage. And now this: The German Insurance Association says they are noticing significantly fewer home burglaries with more people working from home in the COVID-19 pandemic.
Break-ins fell to an all-time low — dropping to 85,000 in 2020, 10,000 fewer than the previous year and the lowest since the association began tallying figures in 1998 — as renters and homeowners who stayed away from the office began moonlighting as their own daytime security, according to Reuters.
