DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues to spread across the globe and the United States, T-System Inc. is providing complimentary T Sheets to healthcare providers worldwide to help them efficiently serve their communities.
The World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11 declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic with 118,000 cases and more than 4,000 deaths.
