No industry has remained unaffected by the novel Coronavirus outbreak. So far, the United States is the worst-hit nation across the world. Among 1.54 million people infected with the virus, more than 30% belongs to New York.

Like other affected countries, the US government has declared a lockdown of the non-essential companies until the situation gets under control. The government of New York has declared a state-wide lockdown with the strict stay-at-home orders.

COVID-19 Financial Impact on Workers

Not only has this viral infection wreaked havoc on human health, but it has also affected businesses and the economy. The industries that belong to the service sector have been closed for more than 2 months. This includes restaurants, cafes, barbershops, tattoo parlors, beauty salons, clubs, bars, and other non-essential retail shops.

The abrupt closure of the service sector, mainly SMEs, has led to unexpected growth in the unemployment rate in the country. The unemployment rate in the US has taken a leap from 3.6% in January 2020 to 4.4% in March. The employees working at restaurants, pubs, cafes, and small stores have applied for unemployment benefits. While it gives some sort of relief to the jobless individuals, research suggests 30% of the applicants have not received the unemployment benefits. It is either because their application is rejected or it is not yet reviewed by the authorities.

Some employees have started to receive the usual payroll as the federal government has provided financial help to retail businesses. As much as reliving it sounds, that may not prove helpful in the long run considering the fact that millions of people in the nation have become jobless with the closure of retail stores. The sad part is not even the government has the idea of how long this pandemic is going to last and how soon will the businesses reopen.

Death Wish Coffee

One such small yet popular business that is affected by the Coronavirus pandemic is the Death Wish Coffee store. Located at the Saratoga Springs in New York, Death Wish Coffee is especially famous for its extensive range of coffee products and multiple coffee shops.

Death Wish Coffee understands the trouble of the service sectors and employees who have been jobless since March. The company has decided to provide financial help to all these unemployed people working in Saratoga Springs in New York. 

The company has collaborated with the Saratoga Country Chamber of Commerce. They aim to generate $75,000 by selling their new T-shirt brand. All the revenues they make will straight be donated to the employees affected by the COVID-19 lockdown.

The coffee shop has come up with two unique t-shirts. Melanie Lucia Clarke has designed one t-shirt while the other one is inspired by a meme. Both t-shirts are available in different sizes and are priced at $25. They are available for online purchase. Customers can buy it from here http://www.deathwishcoffee.com/notbusted.

And China must have taken necessary actions to control it within its territory.

In addition to this, Trump has said that the US had just signed a big trade deal with China and soon COVID-19 started spreading. Due to this, the relations between the US and China are going through the worst phase of all time. And there is no scope of improvement in the near future.

Donald Trump raised his voice against China during the “Spirit of America Showcase” in the Grand Foyer of the White House. Recently, the US president also decided to make July “Pledge to America’s Workers Month by signing a proclamation.

The US is the worst affected country in the world due to COVID-19 and different states in the country are witnessing a hike in the number of COVID-19 cases. Things are not settling well since the states have announced their reopening. Many public health experts have already issued a warning about the jump in the coronavirus cases that different US states could see in the future.

It is not for the first time that Trump has attacked China for the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the world. He had also done it a couple of times in the past. And earlier, many Asian-American had reacted to his act of blaming China for COVID-19 without any solid proof.
