As a people manager, the sheer lack of clear information, advice and guidance for companies in Ireland is dreadful. Really good info here from our neighbours

For intelligent analysis and leadership, take a look at Gov. Cuomo's press conferences in New York.

The World Health Organization's Special Envoy on Covid-19 has said the agency does not believes airborne transmission is a major cause of virus spread. Dr David Nabarro repeated that the WHO believes the vast majority of cases are transmitted by droplets that come from the lungs and throat of an infected person when they cough and sneeze and this can be prevented by the two-metre physical distancing rule. However, Dr Nabarro told RTÉ's News at One that the agency is keeping an open mind as to whether, in some circumstances, further transmission is possible through airborne particles...
Dr Nabarro said there are some outbreaks of Covid-19 that are hard to explain including cases among members of a choir in the United States, where members were practising the two-metre rule. He said it was important that cases that are strange in terms of transmission pattern are reported.

First case of Covid-19 reinfection reported by researchers in Hong Kong:
Genetic sequencing of the virus showed the patient was infected twice by different strains of Covid-19... The man had no symptoms – was asymptomatic – during the second infection which was picked up by screening tests on returning passengers at Hong Kong airport.
