Clinical observation

Some are taking the suspended season harder than others. As with the Coronavirus itself, the question isn't if you will get infected, but when will you get infected.

Moral issues

Yet, a group of employees depend on a specific source of income and are being ignored by most.

As always, stay safe, follow recommendations from health experts and follow our site, FB and IG, for all relevant news.
