Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus (World Health Organization (WHO). My contract in BC start has been delayed because of Covid-19.
WHO has some guidelines that can be followed on this page – Q&A on coronaviruses (COVID-19). Of particular interest for protection and prevention is the Question What can I do to protect myself and prevent the spread of the disease?
Covid-19 does not practice discretion as to who it attacks. Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus, Director-General of WHO noted:
A major advantage to the contract delay is I will be here to support my wife during these troubling times, and I will not be exposed and maybe expose more vulnerable people to Covid-19. It is unfortunate. The misfortune pales in comparison to that of those who will be stricken by the virus.
