COVID-19 and Data Centres

We need to try and provide a timeline of risks graduating from immediate to longer term, and also identify which of these are sector specific and which are not. Immediate risks include staff access for critical functions. Short to medium term risks may involve supply chain, replacement parts etc. Then there are second tier risks like availability of gasoil if operators need to run on standby for long periods.   

This question was discussed on our last call and we are thinking about how to present risks, what timelines to use.  In the document below are a couple of starters for ten to start us thinking.  Please let me have your thoughts.
