Alert! Insurance Companies Start Writing 'Ebola Exclusions' Into Policies!
Can you agree with it?
As Ebola spreads further from its current epicenter in West Africa, American and British insurance companies have started to adjust their standard policies for hospitals and other vulnerable businesses to exclude the virus.
According to insurance industry insiders, companies needing to insure business travel to West Africa or to cover losses following a quarantine may now deal with revamped policies that will likely increase in price based on the latest Ebola outbreak, which has killed nearly 5,000 people in West African countries like Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone.
"What underwriters are doing at the moment is they're generally providing quotes either excluding or including Ebola - and it's much more expensive if Ebola is included," Gary Flynn, an event cancellation broker at London’s Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group Plc, told Reuters.
As for me, anyway, I cannot accept these companies' action about the insurance of Ebola. I think companies should pay more attetion to corporate social responsibility (CSR) in order to fulfil their responsibilities about society.
