I spent the first week of March in New York City at Adweek’s Challenger Brands summit, held right across the street from the World Trade Center. Before I left, my wife encouraged me not to go. The novel coronavirus had landed in the US by then, and the news was growing more alarming. But there were very few cases in New York at the time, and still a lot of misconceptions about its severity and how it spread, so I went.
As I watched commuters exit the Cortlandt Station at the World Trade Center, I couldn’t help but think how difficult controlling the spread of the coronavirus would be if it took off in New York.
