From 23rd March onwards, Peerbits’ top management decided to declare work from home for all our employees thus abandoning all the routine activities at our company’s premises. This step was taken in response to the threat posed by the COVID-19 coronavirus.
The whole world is on a break right now due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic that broke out earlier in Wuhan, China. The roads and streets that used to be filled with swarms of humans are now suddenly empty.
There’s a ghostly silence everywhere, even the most crowded places in the world like Times Square New York, Opera house Sydney, St. Peter’s Square Vatican City, and many more are completely empty making it as an unprecedented event in modern history.
The thing that makes novel coronavirus scary is the fact that it’s an airborne disease. According to WHO, The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes, so it’s important that you also practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow).
The best possible way to combat coronavirus is by social distancing and self-isolation. And Peerbits’ decision to work from home has been taken considering the exact same thing.
