Zero-Covid strategy and co-exist strategy, will be two sides of the current standing among the countries, the rest hybrid of it in the middle ground. Zero-Covid strategy may not be sustainable, in particular for the widely and rapidly spread COVID-19 variant Omicron.
On the other hand, more and more countries after 2 years of lockdowns and economic decline, finally realise the best approach is to co-exist with Covid-19. What matters most is to get the balance and let the economic sector continue to run and at least disrupt as possible. Some countries are even proactive to encourage tourism and no need to quarantine policy hope to recover, in particular for those who are dependent on tourism to bring in tourists to spend in the country.
What if we have another round of new Covid-19 variants that are even worse than the current Omicron? If you adopt the zero-Covid strategy, most of the citizens will suffer first, viruses may not kill them, but they can not make enough income to survive in the first place.
As you can read from the various news across the globe. Mass resignation is ongoing. Some of the corporations after 2 years setback, or Covid-19 as the accelerator, whatever wrong decision they made, such as over expansion, all it now comes to surface. Some decide to chop off some business they decide no more to fund, as the Covid-19 does not seem to let the world recover anytime soon.
While we can expect it will be a repeat of the Delta variant like last year, we expect the infection will reach the peak and then slow down. But we do not know whether another round will come after that. As such, zero-Covid vs co-exist strategy, it is too obvious for the balance within them based on the actual local context.
For those who are still thought the world will continue allow remote to work from home forever, and do not know what is going on in the global scale, and you are yet to possess what make you so unique and be one of the people your enterprise want to keep you, you better to start to acquired and demonstrate your unique value proposition, it always relative concept. With more digital technology and automation adopted, the less needed for the excessive workforce before Covid-19, the next normal feature mass resignation, you think in depth about it, you know, we are now living in a completely different business landscape compared with the past. Are you ready for Covid-19 response, recovery and reset?
