On February 19, AmCham hosted a webinar hosting Prof. Keiji Fukuda on Zoom. This is the Chamber’s first online (and complimentary) event under the COVID-19 series and was attended by many of those who worked from home. Below are some of our key takeaways if you miss it.

- COVID-19 is not yet a global pandemic situation and it is premature to say we are nearing peak either. However, the coming 2-4 weeks are critical in light of data from China and community outbreaks in other countries.
- Social media poses to be the greatest challenge for medical professionals and governments worldwide to communicate effectively.
- There is no magic answer as to when business can resume normal life. The trend in the coming few weeks will tell whether we are out of the “danger zone”.
- Respiratory droplets and person-to-person contact is the key medium of transmission. It is important to wash your hands and wear masks when you are unwell.
