Statista dossier on the impact of the coronavirus on the retail industry worldwide

This dossier provides some of the most recent data relating to the impact of the ongoing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic on the global retail market. In an attempt to slow the spread of the virus many countries have entered a state of lockdown, with temporary closures to schools, bars, restaurants, and non-necessity retail stores, bans on large public gatherings, and people working from home where possible. To provide an understanding of the impact of the coronavirus on the global retail sector, there is a market overview as well as chapters covering consumer behavior and the following selected retail markets: U.S., China, Italy, Germany, and the UK.
