Abstract

SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is wreaking havoc around the world. This unprecedented pandemic has led to illness, death, and economic destruction. The pandemic has challenged health care systems globally for a range of reasons. In developed economies the focus on non-communicable diseases rather than infectious diseases have caught us short. A period of complacency and a lack of focus on potential pandemics has meant that documented shortages of personnel, workforce and equipment has limited healthcare delivery.
