Back to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) is having a significant impact on every aspect of our lives in Ukraine and in other countries. Declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organisation in March 2020, everyone’s primary concern is to minimise the spread of the virus, to mitigate its effects.

Businesses and organisations have a role to play and a responsibility to their own people. They also confront a wide range of practical, commercial and legal challenges associated with the spread of the virus.
