COVID-19: No Longer A Global Emergency

On the 5th of May 2023, the WHO declared the end of the global emergency status for Covid-19. So we discussed how the pandemic has affected our lives, and what it means to come out of the other end of a global emergency. In our discussion, we had several stakeholders chip in their experiences and thoughts, and of course, we hear from you, our listeners.

Some of the people we heard from include:

  • Nadge Ariffin, Tourism Consultant and Heritage & Gastronomy Historian
