During these times of hardship where COVID19 is on one side, the near-recession is looming on the other. Businesses have taken a hit with minimal demand. 

Even though more and more people are adapting to “digital lifestyle” and are spending more time online, the revenues are nowhere nearer to what they used to be. Brands have cut down on ad spends and E-commerce are not doing any sales due to the supply chain situation.
