Although the epidemic situation in China has been developing in a positive direction through the concerted efforts of the country and its people, the weather has turned cooler and the Chinese New Year is approaching, so the situation is still serious.

A no-touch economy under the epidemic

Under the severe impact of the epidemic, the flow of people going out for shopping and travel has been reduced, 'killing' many brick-and-mortar shop owners who were caught off guard. Last year, at this time, what should have been a hot sales point for offline brick-and-mortar shops spent a cold and clear winter because of the ravages of the new coronavirus, with a significant drop in business income. A year on, although most factories and businesses have resumed production and normal operations, there are still many brick-and-mortar shops that have not come out of the gloom of the recession.

Traditional physical shops, in addition to personnel costs, but also to pay high shop rent, wear and tear costs, the cost is already sky-high, coupled with the uneven service personnel, manual service inevitable errors, etc., maintaining the shop is difficult.


Faced with the impact of the epidemic, telecommuting, community e-commerce, online education and other online industries are rapidly expanding, and the trend towards digitalisation and intelligence in the industry is evident, showing strong vitality and vigour. The 'non-contact' services it brings have significantly changed the public's consumption habits, while helping to boost the pace of digital transformation in all industries.
