COVID-19 has caused widespread panic throughout the world showing how globally connected we are. It’s shutting down countries and events that symbolize that connection. From sporting events, museums, theaters, clubs, social gatherings, the list goes on and on. The virus has shown us that the health and well-being of ourselves & our family are more important than sports or glamour. We are facing a global emergency according to the world health organization (source). COVID-19 cases have surpassed 1 million people around the world and the virus continues to spread with the United States leading with the most cases. We’ve even started to see shortages in essential medical supplies like ventilators which New York is currently lacking. (source) In a joint effort to combat the much-needed medical supplies Ford, GE, and 3M have announced that they will be combining both resources and expertise to get as many ventilators, respirators, and medical protective equipment to save as many people as they could.

On top of the shutting down of America’s economy, workers deemed “essential” are being asked to put their health and well being on the front lines with a bare minimum on return. The virus has caused a labor crisis forcing many workers from amazon warehouses, whole foods, General Electric, and other companies to strike, protest, and even call sick-outs. (source) With a shortage in both essential supplies and medical workers, automation has become a more desirable move for companies to continue meeting the high demand to combat the virus today.
