The Current Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The COVID-19 epidemic has disrupted all of our daily routines in countless ways. From border closures to local shutdowns, quarantines to closed stores, COVID-19 has changed our lives in some fashion.
As of this writing, there is a strong desire for a "return to normal". Business operations are recovering, stores are re-opening, and customers are returning to their favorite shops and restaurants. While these are all great signs of economic recovery, there are specific challenges that are presenting themselves as we battle against the further spread of COVID-19 and its variants.
Many industries are facing supply shortages, from fast food to advanced electronics. The logistics of returning the global supply chain up to speed has not come without its fits and starts. A lack of containers for container ships, a scarcity of raw materials, and a temporary labor shortage has affected the economy as a whole during this period of recovery, coupled with increased demand across the board.
