The spread of COVID-19 demands global cooperation among governments, international organisations and the business community. This multistakeholder cooperation is at the centre of the World Economic Forum’s mission.
The new COVID Action Platform will focus on three priorities:

Protect people’s livelihoods and facilitate business continuity.
Mobilise cooperation and business support for the COVID-19 response.
Change Grow Live’s Integrated Recovery Service in Halton has confirmed the successful 'micro-elimination' of the virus.
To achieve micro-elimination the Recovery Service had to:

support 75% of the people diagnosed with Hepatitis C to start treatment.
