Zika virus unlikely to impact business

The World Health Organisation has declared the Zika virus an international public health emergency, with Brazil the worst-hit area. Fortunately, as Benedict McKenna, VP Operations, Claims Manager at FM Global, reveals in this StrategicRISK article, the risk to UK business is likely to be low as it is spread by mosquitos rather than human-to-human contact. For any organisation concerned about exposure, however, FM Global’s Advantage Policy is available for communicable diseases for those working in affected regions.
