Practical steps for pandemic preparedness
Preparing for the new coronavirus outbreak
A novel strain of coronavirus (2019 n-CoV) was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei province, China, in December 2019. On 30th January 2020, the WHO declared a global emergency. This escalating threat has led businesses to consider their own pandemic preparedness measures. It is important that organisations are proactive and prepared, while remaining pragmatic, as virus outbreaks continue to quickly evolve.
