The article indicates that the year 2020 is a worse global recession that could be even worse than Financial Crisis (2008 – 2009). This happens due to the disease known as coronavirus that started in Wuhan, China in 2019. These viruses killed people’s lives which we do not know how we got infected by this kind of disease. The coronavirus or COVID-19 not just only presents a significant threat to humans in terms of health but almost killed the businesses throughout the world. We can see from the news almost all the countries been lockdown to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Most of the company has to be temporarily closed, some of the factories need to be temporary shutdown, a small business cannot operate and most of the activities had to be postponed in dealing with the crisis.
