More than 3.9 billion people, half of the world's population, have been confined.
The world just very unexpectedly encountered a massive Black Swan Event.
A Black Swan event is defined as an unpredictable event that is beyond what is normally expected of a situation and has potentially severe consequences.
Black Swan events are by definition impossible to predict due to their extreme rarity, and yet have catastrophic consequences.
It is crucial for businesses to always assume such events are a possibility, whatever it may be, and to plan accordingly to the best of their abilities.
