The Best Analysis Regarding the Business Impact of Coronavirus COVID-19

The Corona Virus is already causing significant business impact across every sector of the economy, with disproportionate impact against sectors like transportation and hospitality.  At OODA, we’ve been tracking all new developments and consulting with our expert network to derive essential elements of information that can inform your decision making process.  The document below represents the best single-source of analysis on the global business and health impact of COVID-19 we have encountered.    On February 13, we queried OODA Network Expert Dr. Peter Katona, who has spent 30 years working these issue in a medical, academic, and public health capacity.  We asked him what three metrics OODA analysts and our OODA Network members should be tracking to assess the global impacts of COVID-19. He indicated those three metrics should be:

  • Degree of contagiousness
  • Severity of illness
  • Spread to the southern hemisphere

The most comprehensive and informative analysis on COVID-19 was provided by the global consulting firm McKinsey and Company.  We’ve included a PDF copy of the report below, but you can also visit their special Coronavirus Page.  If you only have time to read one document, we recommend this one.
