Editorial: Together we are one.

In a matter of only a couple of weeks, our world as we know it has literally stopped. The Covid-19 pandemic is spreading across the globe with unprecedented speed and determinism. Measures taken by governments are massive and already having a huge effect on regional, national and global economies.

While some sectors will face fewer problems than others, it is fair to say that we all, from individuals to companies, from cities to governments, are and will be affected one way or another. The crisis is also unprecedented in the sense that we are all in the same boat. We are in this together, and we will also prevail together.
