The Health sector is currently the most affected, but it is also gaining, given the demand for pharmaceutical products and medical equipment.
The transport sector also, on top of the drop in the price of oil barrel.
The agricultural sector has never sold as much as now, in general, the food and essential goods sector.
The digital sector has never worked as hard as it does now. Online sales soared.
Many industries assigned to these sectors are working above their capacity and still well, otherwise it was even more catastrophic.
The service sector, some are on the rise.
The demand is brutal.
These sectors will fit billions and billions. We are grateful for their collaboration, however, it is hoped that in the end they will also contribute to the economy and still compensate those who are working, given that they are collaborators on whom we totally now depend and they are exposed.
In a global crisis like this, we all have to contribute, especially those who are winning more, even at risk. For the good of Humanity.
But there is Hope.
Anyone who does not sell now because it was mandatory to retire at home, given the imposition of many governments in an attempt to prevent the spread of the virus among humans, take the opportunity now to Plan your Sales when this situation begins to normalize.
After this terrible period you will probably sell like never before.
It is in these moments of crisis that we have to see the light at the end of the tunnel. That light exists!

By the way, with this social isolation, many divorces may arise, but at the same time a new baby boom may also come, which will not be bad at all. The world needs young people to work.
I'm afraid the next race war for the sale of miracle vaccines will take place. We all hope for the good of the Human Race.
I wish you success!
It is in your hands.
