Regrettably COVID-19 or “Coronavirus” has become a global pandemic. This is new territory for all of us. We are navigating this together – summoning all the information we have, sharing what’s new in real-time and asking everyone in our global community to recognise that we will get through this together – with resolve, compassion and care. This is an extraordinary time, a time when as MTN we need to stand up and be counted on to do the right thing. COVID-19 is affecting nations and citizens all around the world.
We have taken a series of precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our stakeholders. Unfortunately, all indications are that it is going to continue to spread across the world and in our markets – and we need to be prepared for that. We have taken a series of precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our stakeholders including employees, customers, communities and suppliers from the pandemic. Furthermore, we have and continue to develop communication to keep our various stakeholders informed of how we are responding to the pandemic.
