E​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​mployees, managers and other organisational stakeholders are experiencing considerable uncertainty due to the

 emergence of the Omicron variant of Covid-19. With this development in mind, explain why it is difficult to make accurate predictions about the future under conditions of uncertainty. 

Then discuss the ethical problems that arise when – in a state of uncerta​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​inty – a member of a profession or an

 opinion leader (e.g. a CEO, an economic forecaster, a politician, or a journalist) makes predictions about the course

 of the Covid-19 pandemic that can have a detrimental effect on other people. Give examples from the media

 commentary on the pandemic. To what extent, if at all, can symmetrical ethics overcome these ethical prob​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​lems?
