The job sectors that will likely be most impacted by the pandemic going forward.The year 2020 will go down in history as one of the most difficult years for every business. Some have seen businesses they’ve been building for decades destroyed within a matter of weeks.
Others, like grocery stores and soap manufacturers, have sold more products than ever
It seems no matter what line of work you’re in. You’ve probably had one of the most challenging years of your career. The rules and restrictions are changing every day around the world.Everyone has had to learn to adapt quickly during the pandemic.
Here are some ways that the different sectors have overcome those problems.
Keeping the most important sector running
All of the worlds efforts were towards protecting one very important sector – the health sector. There were fears that an increase of people admit to hospital with COVID-19 .
Even with the added restrictions, hospitals still had to deal with a high number of people infected with the coronavirus. Many hospitals had to be redesign. Creating special COVID-19 wards to make sure the virus didn’t pass from patient to patient. One of the main problems for people who run hospitals has been getting enough PPE equipment to keep their staff.
It’s not just the health sector that has had to change massively over the last few months. A lot of brands have seen demand for their products go through the roof since the start of the pandemic. For example, it used to be the minority of people that would wear a face mask whilst out on the street or in a store. Now many stores won’t let you in unless you’re wearing a mask or have a health reason for not wearing one. The production of hand sanitiser and things like protective screens have also had to increase rapidly.
Many brands who produce normal household goods that don’t protect you from the virus. As people began to panic buy from grocery stores, photos of empty aisles where the toilet paper is normally circulating online.
Some are still struggling
Not every industry has seen a huge increase in demand for their products or their services.Some industries have seen the demand drop so low for such a long period of time. Many high-end restaurants have even turned to offering takeaway for the first time to try and make a profit.
On the other side of the globe at London’s equivalent, the West End, some theatres are beginning to open their doors once more. Shows that require small amounts of staff and performers, such as the musical “Six”, are able to put on performances and still make a profit. Many of the big productions will still continue to be closed until 2021 at the earliest, meaning they will have spent around 9 months completely closed during 2020.
