“Everything has closed down”...
...words everyone has heard over the past few weeks. They apply to sport, hotels, pubs, restaurants, and so on.
Yet everyone is working overtime in the supermarkets and the healthcare and home delivery sectors. Worldwide, Amazon was one of the first companies to announce the immediate recruitment of 100,000 people (and that’s just in the US). True, Amazon was already looking for staff before the corona crisis. But still.
Closer to home, the same applies to Thuisbezorgd.nl. They were already understaffed and have now seen the number of orders increase exponentially now that restaurants are closed.
