We are writing this message to you as concerned citizens about the impact COVID-19 could have on you and everyone you know.
At Qode Media we are concerned about the COVID-19 virus and the impact it will have on you and everyone within your circle of influence. Here at Qode Media, you, our loyal clients are at the heart of what we do and why we do it. We’re committed to being both responsive and responsible, navigating these times with everyone’s safety in mind.
Our team is committed to working diligently on your accounts, continuing our social media efforts through monitoring, social listening, posting, performing community management and account building. More than ever, we need to focus on the importance of our online communities and come together during this difficult time. We must remember that we need social solidarity, not social isolation. Rest assured that we are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation very closely. As always, our clients come first and we will strive to produce the highest quality standards.
We have learned many lessons from the situation that is occurring in Italy with patients over the age of 65 being turned away from life support due to lack of ventilators. It’s possible that we could also face the same type of healthcare crisis across North America as there is a potential to put an unprecedented strain on the healthcare network beyond its current capacity.
While some individuals are downplaying the risks that the virus is presenting, please understand that the situation is urgent and we need to act quickly. With only finite healthcare resources at our disposal, we can make sure that we will be able to provide the necessary healthcare for everyone. This includes patients that require other types of healthcare that are not related to COVID-19.
The government continues to implement only a reactive approach to the crisis without taking proactive steps to make sure the virus can be slowed down and effectively contained. This is concerning and makes it more important than ever for all of us to ensure we are doing our part to help keep the virus under control. Social distancing is a key factor relating to the spread of COVID-19 so we must all, as a community, get together and put it into practice. Other important steps that we can take including the following:
- Avoid large gatherings
- If possible, work from home
- Avoid shaking hands
- Frequently wash your hands
- Close businesses, daycares, universities and schools that have people congregating in close proximity to one another
- Avoid contact with the elderly – especially those that have compromised immune systems
- Avoid any type of travel
When we work together collectively we can do our part to alter the trajectory of the COVID-19 pandemic. While individual risks may be low, society is facing immeasurable risks.
We must be strong and let others know that we can make a difference. Spread this message through your social media networks to friends, family and associates and encourage them to get the word out to others as well.
