I have learned that it is difficult to provide food facilities to the needy people in the time of corona virus as government declare lockdown in thisno one could not go outside for anything. They are allowed if they have necessary work to complete otherwise they will be punishable. in this, they should maintain social distancing and focus on health and safety which is important(Blesh, et. al., 2019). For this, they need to maintain their health in the corona virus situation and concentrate on maintaining safety. The government announces that people need to stay with other person and maintain health and safety.
6.5 Describe any other risks associated with your project. The labour risk is main issue in which project manager need skilled and experienced for developing project. The main strategyof this threat is that they need to analyse and evaluate such employees who have skills to work in the project.
