Bird flu business thoughts: I know it's morbid but...

With the Hong Kong Flu Watch in full swing, I can't help but imagine what the business environment would look like. One thing is possible if this happens: much greater need for home delivery. As we saw from SARS, people were loath to go out, and retail pretty much ground to a halt. People still need to eat. All entertainment will likely be at home. Country parks or anything outdoorsy still possible, but people will avoid any places of congregation. Hence I would be bullish on home delivery food and grocery services. If HK had something like Netflix then I'd be keen to follow it too. I wouldn't be surprised if people all of a sudden decided to up their broadband bandwidth provisioning too...from 3Mb to 6Mb or higher. Time to cocoon!

Good post. There are a lot of new (and old) businesses which will sprout as a result of a bird flu pandemic. Home delivery will be one of them.

We need to keep pandemic preparedness at the forefront of every business manager's mind. It won't go away so better start preparing.

For free references, resources and to join their free pandemic preparedness eCourse certification program, go to Bird Flu Manual Online or, if you need more comprehensive tutorials, tools and templates, consider Bird Flu D-I-Y eManual for your influenza pandemic preparedness.
