We all are currently grappling in the fear of the unknown. And we really do not know what to do and how to deal with the situation if things (God forbid) deteriorate further.
The Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) is trying to do something about this. While majority of the urban population working from home, it has launched an online certificate course on the coronavirus. FICCI hopes this course will provide a workforce if the situation deteriorates in the country.
The name of the course - COVID-19 Certificate on Awareness and Management, is open to even those without a science background and deals with awareness and management of the outbreak.
If the situation gets worse, there will be a dearth of people with know-how about Covid and FICCI hopes that this course will arm many with the knowledge, who in turn can be hired by the Govt.
This course is free of charge and as many as 20,318 students have so far enrolled for the online course.
