On March 11th, the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. Transport and in particular public transport, is on the one hand a vector for global and local distribution of the virus and on the other hand has yet to meet the community’s demand for travel.
TUMI-initiative and its partner GIZ invited Shenzhen Bus Group（SZBG）to join a webinar as expert speaker for combating COVID-19. As a result of SZBG’s timely and comprehensive actions and responses, it has so far avoided any major situation in operation.
