It’s that time again, there is mass hysteria. There is actually panic. Women in India ﬁght each other out of the store to hoard toilet paper, mouth masks can no longer be obtained and are sold at extortionate prices and KLM sees the price of its shares plummet to an all-time low.

It is of course a serious virus and the extent to which the number of victims or infected is increasing seems to spread like an oil slick around the world. Today, the death toll stands at several thousand people. That is of course terrible, especially when it concerns someone you know. Calculated fully, about 78 people die every day. And that causes panic. A lot of panic.
At the same time, more than 5,000 people die of hunger every day. Since 5,000 people have been starving every day for a hundred years, that is no longer exciting news and the whole world is holding its breath for the corona virus. Why is that?

Whether you’re in the ofﬁce or at home quarantine, it’s time for an in-depth analysis of the most current trend of the moment: #coronavirus # COVID-19.
