The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is spreading globally at an exponential rate, resulting in a coronavirus pandemic, as declared by the World Health Organization. Confirmed cases of the disease are doubling every 2-3 days in most countries of the world, with the concentration of new cases shifting from China, to the European Union and the USA.
To prevent the rapid rise of infections, governments of almost all countries are severely restricting inbound and outbound travel and are increasingly mandating extreme “social distancing” measures such as closure of non-essential services and office complexes. These measures are expected to ‘flatten the curve’ of new cases, allowing local healthcare facilities to better manage the impending case load. These measures, however, are having unprecedented repercussions for populations, businesses and communities across the world.
We are aware of the significant disruption and impact this may have on our employees, clients, partners, investors and the communities in which we operate. We are working hard to manage and mitigate its impact.
Below are listed some of the essential efforts we at Boolean IP are making to manage the situation:
