STAY SAFE, MINET SECURING AFRICA’S FUTURE

COVID-19 RESPONSE SITE

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness (World Health Organization – www.who.int)

COVID-19 is affecting everyone, from individuals and local businesses to global enterprises. Whilst one cannot predict a pneumonic outbreak like this, one can prepare for the impact of the same. As the effect of COVID-19 is felt across the world, our focus at Minet is to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, our clients and our partners across the African continent by offering support during these challenging times.

The purpose of this response site is to 1) offer insights, guidance and information to help understand COVID-19, 2) monitor its impacts on businesses, individuals and the communities we serve, and 3) assist in responding to and planning for the risks COVID-19 may represent for the resilience of people and operations. Due to the dynamic nature of this outbreak, we do encourage you to access this site for new insights and services. We are here to help. Stay Safe. Minet, secure tomorrow.
