Just like trends and breakthroughs in the 20th century have always been divided into the pre-war and post-war, COVID-19 has left a similar effect on businesses and the way of living.
But a common dialogue that works as an obstacle for most businesses is that people are waiting for the pandemic to be over and things to go back to the traditional way of business.
