Bill gates had famously expressed in a 2015-TED talk video that, “If anything kills over 10 million people in the next few decades it’s highly likely to be a high-infectious virus rather than a war. Not missiles, microbes.”
The world is simply ill-prepared to deal with diseases, especially the virulent flu that have been impacting the human race on a global scale. What this spells for HR is very sobering – of the many things that might disrupt supply chains like no other in recent history, by far the most likely is an epidemic.
In this alarming health crisis, more than 1 billion people worldwide are subjected to isolation and quarantine. Companies are seeing demand spike for certain items and plummet for others. Access to parts and labour from around the world is being severely disrupted and as viruses know no borders, businesses worldwide are grappling with the disruptions, unbeknown to them the impacts that might continue to spiral.
