Never Waste A Good Crisis

What we’re experiencing as a result of the pandemic is unprecedented in many ways, all the countries are restraining the unnecessary business activities. Such like restaurants, schools, tourism, shopping malls and such behavior is definitely slowing down the economy and therefore the demands were suppressed as well.
