Lockdown business impact and the Next Normal, it rise as the topic, as we saw from partial to total lockdown practice is ongoing one after another. Due to the new COVID-19 variant it makes a stronger spread in the new wave. From Brazil, UK, South Africa then India. And Vietnam is reporting that a new kind of variant that seems to have evolved from the UK and India variant is starting to get public awareness across the globe.
For those who have done it before will know lockdown, whether from partial to total, is two edged sword, it will slow down the virus spreading but at the same time will kill the business sector and economic lifeblood for the nation (if nationwide lockdown).
As a well known fact, the airline and travel industry and related sector, physical retail and shopping continue to decline. You saw how many luxury cruisers and “floating hotel and resorts’ ‘are being parked for recycling, you know what those sectors are currently facing, and they are doing all that is necessary to slow down the bleeding or cut loose.
Depending on the nation and culture, and how disciplined and well executed the government is, the partial or total lockdown brings various kinds of results, its balancing act of attempting to contain the COVID-19 and at the same time make sure it does not impact the business sector that eventually declines. This is out from everyone expect despite we are continue for the vaccines rollout, but we do not expect to see the condition will turnaround in the short term period yet.
Despite we see initial for health passport initiative from the travel industry, but due to involved various country want to control it, and with the continue for partial to total lockdowns from here and there, the next normal will take longer time than usual. If Vietnam discovers that the newly evolved COVID-19 is indeed able to spread via the air, then we are expected to make a massive change to combat the virus at the global scale.
