WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) PANDEMIC?
■The COVID-19 pandemic is new for everyone and every day is a learning experience when it comes to patient purchasing behaviour, stock control and ordering, keeping within pharmacy budget, making the most of local resources such as hand sanitizer, face mask when stocks are diverted to more needy countries;
■During this time it is encouraging to see majority people heed of advice from authorities and practising proper hygiene, however, there are times when they have to reminded because this situation is something we are not used to;
