The global distribution of medical goods has become the primary focus of efforts to keep essential supply chains open during the coronavirus pandemic. As globalization has increased, the world’s supply chains have become substantially more interconnected and goods often have more stages to pass through before reaching the end consumer.

From national lockdowns to closed airspace and borders, Covid-19 has resulted in unprecedented disruption to the mechanics of most economies, regardless of their size or stage of development. In particular, the erection of these barriers has placed a major strain on the world’s supply chains, including essential linkages relating to food and medicines.
