To curb the spread of the virus, many global leaders declare we are “at war” with coronavirus. Referring to the pandemic in military terms is their way of communicating the gravity of this brutal public-health crisis.
The world is facing an unprecedented health crisis in terms of magnitude, gravity and speed of propagation. It creates a huge disruption in the global economy, impacting millions of businesses, causing mass unemployment and altering the life of billions of people.
You’re incessantly reminded of the severity and scope of this extremely disorientating situation. While the news has seldom been so unrelenting, so unsettling, one aspect of this crazy and unexpected disruption might be a bit less obvious:
The Power Of COVID-19 To Accelerate Human Cooperation On Our Planet
Cooperation is always crucial in a time of global crisis like this. The scale of global Cooperation and Collaboration sparked by Coronavirus has no parallel in history. Heads of State, the Scientific Community, international financial institutions, civil society, the private sector, research and learning Organizations are all mobilizing and exchanging information in the response to the pandemic.
Equally extraordinary is the reach of data exchange initiatives underway. Facilitating access and exchanging data will be critical to speed the resolution of this unrivaled global health crisis and mitigate its repercussions. With more than 100 vaccine projects across the world, we all have a good reason for optimism.
A long-needed conscious awakening hinting at A Revolutionary “New Normal”
During peacetime, many of us tend to become a bit complacent. Now, all of a sudden, you feel your life is threatened by this virus. It can be quite scary. It’s your survival, after all.
Now, consider this:
The whole Scientific World is mobilizing to find a cure for the virus.
A combination of superb Scientists, unmatched Resources and unheard-of Technology.
You’re not being asked to mobilize, as in an actual war, but to stay home.
Sure, the forced quarantine can make you feel like a bird cooped up in a cage.
And it forces you to leave your comfort zone.
You’re also being teleported to a world where you have more time. Plenty of time to evaluate your own life and business from a new perspective. An excellent opportunity to discover the many possibilities that might not be immediately visible.
While you wait for a cure for COVID 19, you can find your own cure for that daily, boring grind – if you feel that way. Instead of just fighting for survival, you can take effective action to weather this storm and start working on a better and stronger post-crisis future. Without spending a dime.
The best time to start working is the day before yesterday. The second best time is now.

Some years ago, when the best source of international research available in Rio de Janeiro, was the library at the American Consulate. I often went there to collect basic data about suppliers and prospective clients.
During each pre-scheduled session, would spend at least 2 hours, browsing through the Thomas Register of American Manufacturers and other specialized publications to discover the information needed.
Don’t have a website yet but, thanks to what I’ve learned and practiced with all the Resources from these remarkable Professionals, I’ll be busy for the next few months.
I always start each Integrated Communication Project with extensive research. In some cases, my first step is to conduct science-based research in English, French, German, Italian and Portuguese.
For example, using the following demographics of languages and population, I begin to identify the most pertinent data:
French: 279.8 million
Portuguese: 234.1 million
German: 132.1 million
Italian: 67.8 million
Total nr. Speakers: 713.8 million
Based on real numbers and information, it’s possible to collect the insight to start developing Conversion-Focused Campaigns for my Client. I write the first targeted articles in English and Portuguese and posts in English, French, German, Italian and Portuguese. For publication in their favorite Channels. And they can now present their Solution to a wider Audience in at least 3 Continents with Calls to action in 5 languages to the website in English. That’s how I can help to leverage the Global impact of the Brand.
