SARS-CoV-2 (“Coronavirus” / “COVID-19”) Update

Logo - Living SafelyA message from the Managing Director of Recalls Direct, a global health initiative of Living Safely:

Our regional health teams, in-house clinicians and medical advisors recognize this is a difficult time for people dealing with the global SARS-CoV-2 (“Coronavirus” / “COVID-19”) pandemic. We further recognize this is a very serious, emerging and rapidly evolving situation requiring global agency cooperation. We fully support the efforts of the World Health Organization and regional heath authorities in this pandemic. If you a clinician or other heath care provider, please visit the WHO site for technical guidance here: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/technical-guidance-publications.

In turn, this reduces the level of reporting that we can provide to you and the thousands of other people who visit us and companies and organizations who consult our site every day.
