It's one thing enforcing quarantine (in many cases voluntary) when you're in holiday mode. Coming back to work is another thing entirely.
As pointed out in my previous post, this outbreak will be a breeding ground (pardon the awful pun) for innovation as companies balance their need to keep working, while keeping their people safe.
For now, one thing that's changing is the way you come to work, as you can see in this video found on Douyin, the Tiktok of China.
This company has figured out a pretty foolproof SOP (standard operating procedure) for getting to work. The Chinese spirit cannot be conquered. Chinese people remember the struggles of their ancestors, and they remember that endurance and hardship are just part of the journey to greater success.
Wuhan, jia you! | 武汉，加油！
China, jia you! | 中国， 加油！
