The micro-site also provides essential guidance for people dependent industries like manufacturing, services, retail and construction.

A microsite has been launched by Aster DM Healthcare to support people to make sense of the 'new normal' way of living amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

'Our New Earth' microsite offers content that focuses on the role a person might play within society. It highlights that when an individual is mentally and physically healthy, it is easier for them to care better for family, to be a well-functioning employee or a considerate employer.

In addition, the microsite also offers advisory on the safe functioning of the top four sectors in the region which cannot operate without employees being on-site: Manufacturing, Retail, Construction and Services.

"It is vital that we make our own wellbeing the number one priority on our task list. Daily routines have been turned upside down and we are being fed information constantly from many different sources - news, friends, social media, employers. This can be overwhelming and that is why we decided to bring important content and advice that has been verified by healthcare professionals all under one roof, making it simple for people to digest and get the information they need to function positively in the world we are now living in," said Alisha Moopen, deputy managing director of Aster DM Healthcare.

"This pandemic has taught us that we need to go back to basics - whether it is washing our hands, sleeping well, eating well. This is actually a good time to cultivate better habits and nurture your health to a better place. This site will enable you to look at useful information, exercises and suggestions to take care of all our relationships which impact us, directly or indirectly," she
