Where are we now?

World Health Organisation

With Covid-19 spreading globally across every continent, WHO characterised COVID-19 as a pandemic on March 11, 2020.

What does this mean? 

A Pandemic is “an outbreak of a new pathogen that spreads easily from person to person across the globe”.

 

This is essentially the highest level classification that can be used to describe a disease outbreak under the International Health Regulations.

What are the implications? 

The WHO’s announcement does not formally trigger any new funding, protocols or regulations

  • It is an acknowledgement of the disease spreading across several continents
  • While the word may evoke fear, it describes how widespread an outbreak may be – not its deadliness
  • The last time the WHO declared a pandemic was during the 2009 H1N1 swine flu, and it triggered aggressive actions such as millions in spending to buy vaccines.

Responding to COVID-19

ACT NOW

  • Enact business continuity and crisis teams in affected areas.
  • Communicate awareness and monitoring to employees, key third parties and customers.
  • Consider implications of and tolerance levels for high absenteeism on critical processes.
  • Balance service delivery.

PRIORITISE

  • Ask functional leaders to reconsider 2020 forecasts.
  • Increase liquidity and financial backstop.
  • Implement employee awareness campaign on personal hygiene.
  • Assess key third parties for resiliency in the face of high absenteeism.
  • Establish a plan for handling the backlog of work once you are back to “normal.”

AVOID

  • Implementation disruptions of key strategies and priorities.
  • Reputational damage from misinformation about the organisation’s response to COVID-19.
  • Short-term over reactions by functional leaders.
  • Difficulties with working capital availability.
