Across many countries where the coronavirus (COVID-19) has infiltrated; it’s made more of the same impact of isolation and social distancing as severe measures have been put in place by individuals, businesses and governments.

It’s not a secret that most businesses, primarily retail & restaurants, are not selling at all or are completely shut. As more countries are affected; this is being replicated everywhere.

In Lebanon, we’re into week 3 of the governmental lockdown and now a curfew is being put in place. It’s safe to say this is not going to change anytime soon. So a lot of businesses will unfortunately have to shut down as they struggle.

But some will survive, and those are the ones that adapt fast to this crazy new world we’re living in.

The Internet comes to the rescue. Online shopping surges for COVID-19 infected regions.

Italy has witnessed a great surge ever since their own lockdown as people avoid malls and shopping centers. And this trend is seen across other countries.
