Update Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak

By Sofia Schultz, March 9, 2020
As the COVID-19 situation in China begins to stabilize, the effects of the virus on public health and the economy are increasingly being felt by other countries in Asia, Europe and the Americas.

We are monitoring every new development and adapting our response on a daily basis. Our focus is on protecting the health and safety of our employees and ensuring our customers’ operations continue as smoothly as possible during this difficult period. We continuously provide our colleagues in sales and operations with in-depth information so that they can support our customers with the most up-to-date and relevant advice.

Evidence based information
We still refer to details about the spread to your local authorities. Countries and even cities are taking different approaches and actions which vary from day to day. Therefore, it’s important that you follow these guidelines and recommendations locally.

 

Authorities and WHO (World Health Organization) work to increase the awareness of infection spreading. Please read more about the virus, how to minimize and prevent the spread on WHO website: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019

 

There are also videos, news updates and Q&A: https://www.who.int/news-room/q-a-detail/q-a-coronaviruses

 

To quote the Director of WHO;
WHO will continue to provide evidence-based guidance to help countries and individuals to assess and manage their risk, and make decisions. There is no one-size fits all approach. Different countries are in different scenarios.
