COVID-19 impact on global health site traffic 2019-2020

Digital health platforms have undergone a ten percent global traffic increase between January and April 2020. Overall, health and medicine websites generated 581.37 million visits in May 2020, up from 459 million global visits in January 2019. This is of course due to the global coronavirus pandemic which has forced millions of people to stay at home in order to stop the spread of the virus. Big pharmacy chains such as Walgreens or CVS have increased their online audience reach, and telemedicine startups have also benefitted from the explosion of online orders of prescription drugs and OTC medicines.
