As the COVID-19 pandemic effortlessly spreads across the globe, it has been stretching healthcare sectors to their limits and forcing governments and healthcare institutions to rethink the strategies for delivering their services.
As the dreadful virus ravaged the world, all but essential services were closed. The world stayed in, trying to stay safe. Businesses, including restaurants, had to close down and as it was across the hospitality industry, many lost their jobs.
I was opportune to have a quick interview with a New York-based restaurateur, Mogan Anthony.
Mogan’s restaurant wasn’t spared, as he had to close down his small neighborhood restaurant group in Westchester, New York.
But with challenges comes ingenuity.
In the fight to curb the wide-spread of the virus, Mogan discovered a smart new way to use hand sanitizers. While maintaining good hygiene has been at the core of the restaurant industry, the challenge of the coronavirus raised the bar a notch higher.
“The need to keep safe and stay Germfree led us to develop a smart new way to use sanitizers. Firstly, the idea was for us to use it in-house as we worked out ways to deal with the virus, but seeing the needs of others, we decided to launch the product into the mainstream market,”
“The idea is for all to have access to a smart sanitizer pouch that reduces the incidence of contracting harmful germs while reaching for the conventional sanitizers,”
