Thinking ahead

International flows of goods and people have become an integral part of our global world. In addition to all the positive aspects, however, these flows also entail an increased risk in the development of epidemics or pandemics. Pathogens such as the influenza A virus H5N1 ("bird flu"), the influenza A H1N1 virus ("swine flu"), SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV or COVID-19 ("coronavirus") have highlighted the impact that an epidemic and pandemic can have on our economy and daily life.

Such a plan should include the analysis of internal structures, identify the need for needed resources and include preparatory measures for an epidemic and pandemic phase. It is absolutely necessary to develop a mature information policy when an acute epidemic and pandemic phase occurs in order to ensure rapid and complete capacity to act.

In addition, the education and training of employees and the preparation of hygiene and flow charts are also essential.

Companies, state and public institutions can reduce the personal consequences of such an outbreak by means of a profound and comprehensive epidemic and pandemic management.
