More than a month into our nation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic – the stay at home measures, increased emphasis on proper hygiene and physical distancing, regular media briefings and updates, and a rise in the use of virtual channels to do everything from schooling and work to banking/commerce and interacting – one can’t help but wonder: Where are we in the course of turning the tide in our favour? Have we done all that we can to achieve the desired outcomes? Have we made all the right calls?
