Item Type: Article


Many are of the view that the Covid-19 pandemic spread like a burst pipe imposing a devastating and continuing impact. However, there was clear evidence that the lessons learnt from the Spanish flu Pandemic of 1918 were not heeded and the pandemic pipe has since systematically leaked Influenza in 1956, SARs in 2003, Swine Flu in 2009 and MERS in 2012. The antiphasis is that whilst developed economic leaders acknowledged the WHO concerns, they have done little to both avoid or prepare for the current pandemic. In direct consequence to Covid-19, approximately 38% of the UK working population were instructed to work from home. Ten months later and calls for a second national lock down in 2021, the question remains concerning the impact on home working.
