One of the fears of the spread of the COVID-19 virus is that when it starts to spread in developing nations, the toll on their citizens' health and economy will be enormous. That will, in turn, continue to have a negative effect on the developed economies in the world, and I've seen speculation that it could cause a 'rebound' of the spread of the virus back to the developed countries that are currently most affected.
The UK government and Unilever have announced a public-private partnership to put hundreds of millions to producing and distributing sanitary products in developing countries to help stem the spread of the coronavirus. This is an impressive partnership that's looking to help the greater good by helping others. We can accomplish so much more together than we can separately . . .
“Many people in the poorest countries lack access to basic handwashing products, such as soap, or are not aware of the urgent need to change their behaviour. The UK government’s partnership with Unilever, will make a real difference, helping to protect both developing countries and the UK from infections.”
