We’re sure nobody ever imagined 2020 to be such a disastrous year. Who would’ve thought we’d be locked up in our houses? On a normal day, I would’ve loved to work from home and have a relaxed day; but COVID has completely changed my perspective on WFH. I would rather go to the office and work there.
A lot of people have filed for unemployment and some businesses have filed for bankruptcy. The truth is, we weren’t prepared for a disaster like this. Most businesses usually plan ahead for disasters like this but not everyone expects it to become a reality.
The industries that have been impacted by this the most are the hospitality industry, travel industry, and constructions. As all countries follow social distancing and lockdowns, these industries have been suffering the most mainly because of the fact that these are industries that require people physically present.
