It’s been a little over three months from the time quarantine was implemented in the country, and with the dangling fear of whether or not the vaccine for COVID-19 will be discovered soon, there is a chance the entire country will be under quarantine until the vaccine is made available. For now, we are jumping from one quarantine extension to another, and even if the government decides to lift the quarantine, the experience should be a lesson learned for many businesses.
Many weren’t ready for the COVID-19 crisis. People’s health are threatened as well as the country’s economy, particularly the labor and employment sector. Almost 2.7 billion workers, which represent 81 percent of the world’s workforce, have been affected by the full and partial lockdown, according to the International Labor Organization’s monitoring report.
