We’ve seen people in China worn their neighbours and whole buildings go on self-isolation for weeks just to try and contain it. We’ve seen Italians singing on their balconies to cheer each other up and keep their spirits high while the country is on lockdown. We’ve seen younger citizens (who are less likely to suffer complications) offer to shop for older neighbours so that those more at risk wouldn’t have to go out and risk getting infected.
And while Europe is facing a shortage of hand-sanitizer we’re now seeing luxury conglomerates step in and do their best to help. LVMH, a French multinational corporation that specialises in luxury goods is switching gears and using their facilities to make sanitiser and alcohol-gels. Their factories that previously made perfumes for Dior, Givenchy and Guerlain will now be used to make anti-bacterial hand sanitizers, which will then be distributed free of charge to hospitals and medical facilities.
