Here is the latest by world leaders on Coronavirus

  • “When you have a big shock, you need to think in terms of discontinuity. Your behaviour needs to handle discontinuity, otherwise it won’t work. Crisis management has always shown that, when you have a big crisis, if you anticipate and manage the discontinuity, then you’re OK. That’s what we need to do on every topic.”  – Jean Pierre Mustier, CEO, UniCredit
  • “It’s very clear that once this crisis is over many people will be unemployed, many companies will have filed for insolvency and a huge economic cost will have been incurred. On the way there, people will look for who is responsible and if we’re not very careful there will be a blame game. That is the big danger.” – Bernhard Spalt, Erste Group
  • “In San Francisco alone, there are over 12,000 small businesses that employ more than 350,000 people. The coronavirus pandemic is threatening to permanently close many of these, leaving staff unemployed and owners at-risk. But one concrete, meaningful way that we can help is by purchasing gift cards. It’s a seemingly small gesture, but it means that the business gets income today to stay afloat through the crisis.” – Mike Krieger, Cofounder of Instagram
  • “I’m the only board member not working from home and I feel very safe in the office because I’m more or less on my own. If I’m lucky I meet maybe two people in a 12-hour day! But I don’t want to leave the office totally. I still can’t accept that the whole building could be empty!” – Johann Strobl, CEO, Raiffeisen Bank International
  • “Four years into operation, we have to address the formidable challenge of coronavirus which has now evolved into a pandemic, visiting its wrath on many countries in this world. This is the litmus test to our ability to deal with a crisis and emergency. This is the time for us to demonstrate our adaptability, resilience, responsiveness and relevance.” Jin Liqun, President, AIIB
  • “I was struck by the work these organizations are doing and while everyone’s priority right now is to stay safer at home, I know there are many of us looking for ways to help.” Oprah Winfrey – American media executive
  • “If we make the right decisions now—informed by science, data and the experience of medical professionals—we can save lives and get the country back to work.” – Bill Gates, CEO and founder of Microsoft
