The challenges of Covid-19 facing the world right now has truly shaken up global economies, and stretched healthcare systems to their limits – up-heaving people’s daily lives. With more than a third of the world’s population under some form of lock-down, to put it simply: there isn’t a business, government, or person that hasn’t felt the effects of Coronavirus, even to some degree.
Recognising the Front-liners
One very noticeable impact of the outbreak is the sacrifice and perseverance of front-liners and their relentless dedication that symbolises everything good that is the human spirit. This is having a knock-on effect on various industries and key groups.
The #ClapforNHS social movement saw millions of Britons applauding National Health Service staff last Thursday, and spawned the same for workers in other countries, including Singapore. We are at a a stage where every contribution matters, no matter how small.
Our deepest condolences goes out to the loved ones of those that have succumbed to the deadly virus. But life goes on, and we have to look forward to brighter days. With many industries taking a hit, majority of us are genuinely concerned about job security. And rightly so.
