April 14, 2020: It’s Tuesday Newsday again! We take this opportunity to round up a few topics as we continue our heavy load of coronavirus content.

The impact of this disaster is clear but the lasting effects are not yet apparent. So much has been learned and fast-tracked during the last two months, with the healthcare sector being at the center of this. From the explosion of telehealth and other adjacent measures to the need to adapt to the dangers that we have now witnessed, it is hard to imagine institutions returning to certain systems.
