Covid is surging in Europe and worries the world, it is a strong sign that the rest of the world might see resurgences follow what happens in the European continent. Since it doubled last month, the worrying trend has continued where winter begins. Most of the countries are rolling back from endemic back to pandemic response with various kinds of lockdowns reintroducing and closing the borders. Some even enforce lockdown for the unvaccinated, since they have a higher chance for being infected compared with those already vaccinated.
Lots of places are introducing Covid restrictions, including the mandatory requirement to wear masks in public places. Enforce citizens to show vaccinated health passports to enter premises. It is again a hospital capability for most of the countries. This round those who are unvaccinated are the one being blamed. Statistically higher case rates will translate into a higher health toll.
Winter is coming where most of the activity takes place indoors, and the coming Christmas holidays season is just a month away. Shopping malls, if being prohibited to be accessed, are for sure very difficult for most of the retail shopping business to survive that depend on window shopping. Not all the items you will buy via 24×7 online shopping, some items are classes you need to see before you consider the basis. This round of the testing is also about whether with high ratio of vaccinated populations, are they new mutations of the COVID-19 virus Delta plus variant (or technically it name as AY.4.2, a mutation of the SARS-CoV-2 delta variant or in short Delta Plus variant for more easy to remember).
For this coming Christmas and new year, if we can not see good progress for Covid endemic, for sure the global COVID-19 response, recovery and restart initiative will slow down, and will take longer time than everyone expects. For those who are still refuse for digitalization, make use of internet, web and cloud technology where be the part of the new next normal norm, you most likely will be outperform by your competitors who proactive adapt it for the good. Digital transformation (DT) takes various means and ways, it matters to have a good master plan and know where you want to go, before all the change programs to support it.
