As brick-and-mortar businesses shut down, restaurants are struggling, but small efforts are afoot to salvage whatever they can.
·         Salons and Beauty parlours: Every industry has been impacted by Corona virus shutdowns, but for hairdressers and other hands-on beauty service providers, it has been devastating. About 72 percent of hair salon workers polled said that they either live paycheck-to-paycheck or have only about a month’s worth of cash reserves to live on. About 23 percent reported having no health insurance. Many salons laid off their workers quickly after the shutdowns, allowing them to apply for unemployment benefits.

·         Food delivery applications: Customers are wary whether the food they order from online delivery platforms like Swiggy and Zomato is safe or not. Among the concerns are the health of the delivery partner and the hygiene conditions of places where the food is made. The food delivery platforms have begun an outreach programme assuring their customers about the safety of ordering food online. They are informing customers about the best practices being followed in order to win back their trust.
·         Automobile manufacturing companies: The automotive industry is disrupted by the four megatrends connected, autonomous, electric and shared driving, causing an unprecedented technology and business model transformation. Amid this transformation, the COVID -19 outbreak is putting additional stress on the industry. After initial supply and manufacturing disruptions, the industry is now experiencing a demand shock with uncertain recovery timeline due to shelter -in -place regulations. Decrease in market capitalization will likely accelerate industry consolidation and without securing additional funding, some players risk going out of business.

Drivers worry it won't be enough to avert a wave of bankruptcies in the industry.

Less Affected Businesses by Covid-19:

Pharmacists globally are providing services amidst pandemic, including TRIAGE services, seeing patients and reducing the patients’ burden on health care facilities such as hospitals and GP practices. Pharmacists are also working to providing home deliveries, as well as dealing with the increasing number of patients coming through to pharmacies with the other ailments.
·         Graphic and web designing: In times of crisis, graphic design and visual messaging is more important than ever and there is a wider scope for it as well. Graphic design could be a crucial way to reach out and reassure more vulnerable communities during the coronavirus.
·         Online tutoring: COVID-19 caused schools and colleges across the globe to be closed and over 1.2 million children in 186 countries are affected by school closures due to the pandemic.

As a result, we could see a spike in hiring for all kinds of technologists skilled in e-commerce. There is every chance that the demand for technologists with e-commerce abilities will only grow over the next year and beyond.
