Responding to the potential business impacts of COVID-19

COVID-19 can cause potentially significant people, social and economic implications for organizations. This page provides information on how you can prepare your organization and respond.

The COVID-19 outbreak has been declared a public health emergency of international concern by the World Health Organization, causing huge impact on people's lives, families and communities.

As the international response continues to develop, we know that organizations are facing several potentially significant challenges to which they need to respond rapidly. We are working closely with organizations globally to help them in preparing and responding, sharing our experience having worked with companies, governments, regulators, NGOs and international organizations around the world to respond to some of the most high profile outbreaks (including Ebola, MERS, SARS and bird flu).

Implications for your organization?

Our PwC Crisis and Resilience teams across the network are experienced in working with companies, governments, regulators, NGOs and international organizations around the world, helping them to prepare for and respond to some of the most high profile pandemics, including Ebola, MERS, SARS, H1N1 (swine flu) and H5N1 (bird flu). Key areas that we provide support include:  

  • Developing and assessing crisis and response plans
