The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting most of the countries and businesses around the world. The governments across the many regions have taken an array of actions to protect their citizens and contain COVID-19’s spread but confirmed disease cases numbers are still high, especially in Americas (USA, Brazil), India and Russia.
COVID-19 has officially been designated a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). It has gone global with cases in over 150 countries. As of mid-June, 2020, more than 7.6 million COVID-19 confirmed cases over time have been reported worldwide with a death toll of more than 420,000.
Estimates of the expected recovery in 2021 are equally uncertain, with outcomes depending largely on the duration of the outbreak and the effectiveness of the policy responses. Aside from the obvious health risks, there is and will be an economic impact as well.

Keeping the fact of an inevitable economic impact in mind, it is most important for the vast majority of companies, operating in the Vehicle Telematics industry, to find a way to contribute to society and clients in target markets and to keep the business afloat.
