All news still seems to be about Corona, and worldwide the number of people struggling with the consequences of the disease and the number of deaths related to Corona is still increasing. The only “good” news seems to be that in the countries that were the early targets of the virus the worst seems to have passed and society is slowly being opened up.
Here in the Netherlands the number of people being admitted to hospitals due to Corona seems to have peaked and discussions have started up concerning how the country can be “opened up” again. Key news that will have long-term consequences for the (commercial) healthcare sector are:
- Hidden disaster in nursing homes as Corona-related deaths increase. What will be the long-term consequences for the sector?
- Financial directors in the healthcare sector expect hard times. Will important investments be delayed?
