Several months into the COVID-19 pandemic, countries around the world continue to struggle in mitigating the immediate impacts of the virus. It has deeply affected the economic and social sectors of many nations, driving hospitality industries into the ground and depleting societies of needed resources. Even the most advanced healthcare systems are overwhelmed by the severity of the disease, causing deaths not only to those infected but also to the people that might not have contracted the virus yet lacked medical attention. Further complicating the issue is the fact that multiple countries have enacted drastic measures that include social distancing and quarantines, severely impacting businesses and causing mass unemployment. The US, for example, have recorded a surge of people filing unemployment insurance totalling upwards of 22 million, suggesting an unemployment rate of higher than 15 percent, the highest since 1933. Apart from those considered ‘essential’ services, businesses are either relegated to producing medical devices or facing closures.
