Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) update
Our Response to COVID-1924, April, 2020Yes
In our role as a global health leader, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation and taking steps to help prevent the spread of the virus as well as exploring the potential for a vaccine. For more information, please reference Johnson & Johnson’s coronavirus webpage.
Business Continuity and Product Supply
We have robust business continuity plans in place across our global supply chain network to prepare for unforeseen events and to meet the needs of the patients, customers and consumers who depend on our products. These steps include maintaining critical inventory at major distribution centers away from high-risk areas and working with external suppliers to support our preparedness plans.
We are closely monitoring product demand and supply levels across our global network to ensure adequate and effective distribution, and working diligently to meet patient, customer and consumer need.
While this remains a dynamic situation, we do not foresee pharmaceutical supply interruptions related to COVID-19 at this time.
As a leader in global health, our top priority remains our patients, customers and employees. We are partnering with global and local health authorities to address immediate and long-term health care needs, to ensure sustainable supply of our critical medicines, as well as to research potential vaccines and therapeutics.
We will remain on the front lines of this health crisis, bringing our full resources and minds to combat it.
