Mitigating the Impact of COVID-19.
Covid-19 will take a toll on individuals and businesses. World Health Organization(WHO) recently pronounced that this pandemic will be with us for a while. Across the globe, nations came up with various measures to combat the virus including lockdowns, evening-to-dawn curfews and other propositions by the WHO. Whereas the measures helped in containing the virus to some extent, the continued upsurge in infections in Europe, Americas and in even parts of Africa is a sign of desperation. The impact these restrictions have put on businesses looks unsustainable and governments have had to rethink and adjust to live with the virus. Almost every government is now putting in place strategies to open up their economies. They have already reacted and put together comprehensive rescue packages that must now reach those businesses and freelancers who urgently need them at least with the aim of eventually overcoming the impact of this global crisis.
