The North is empty. The doors are shuttered and every day new ‘for rent’ and ‘for sale’ signs are going up. Some of the business owners I spoke with said they would be extremely challenged to make it until Christmas if this isn’t over.
On the one hand, many countries opening up have citizens who have done the hard yards to eradicate COVID19, by following extreme measures. It’s not over in many of these countries, but they have a better sense of where they are, and a commitment to doing what is needed to end the crisis in their countries.
