After all, with all the media coverage, the way we speak about the Coronavirus is very important in terms of addressing the outbreak and worries/anxiety around it.

For example, crisis communication skills are becoming more and more useful in a wide variety of contexts, so it’s important for businesses to build that muscle for the long term,”
