THE END OF LOW COST TRAVEL

After the crisis ends, air fares will inevitably return to the high levels of many years ago. It is definite that after the crisis passes, the global civil aviation industry will be completely different from what it has been up until now.

Even if not many airlines go under, most of the survivors will be in desperate straits, and the competition laws will therefore also be changed. Companies like Ryanair will not be able to continue selling tickets at low price.

MAJOR INDUSTRIES EXPECTED TO THRIVE AFTER THE CRISIS

  1. Medical education: Replacement of in-person medical classes by recorded lectures or live-streams. Interactive learning groups, such as small group case-based learning and team-based learning through webinars and teleconferences provides an insight into how medical school will look going forward. Implementing technology into medical education in a unique way will allow students to develop collaborative skills and improve adaptability.

PROACTIVE SECTORAL LOBBYING IN FULL SWING AT EU LEVEL

  1. Car makers and parts producers: They oppose environmental standards. They say they won't be able to comply with existing and future EU laws and regulations within the applicable deadlines set in the regulations. Some of these regulations include the much-discussed new standards for CO2 emissions.

OIL SHOCK ON PRODUCING COUNTRIES

U.S. ECONOMY IN FREE FALL

  2. GDP to contract at 40% annual rate in the second quarter
  3. Federal Budget Deficit: $ 3.7 trillion

NEW ERA OF AIR TRAVEL

  1. The recovery period could take two to three years.
  2. Customers may be subject to pre-flight health checks (temperature checks, health certificates) that may differ from country to country could be time-consuming and complicate flying schedules.
  3. The wearing of masks might reassure passengers, but keeping middle seats empty would be challenging and reduce maximum seat capacity to below break-even levels.
  4. Half of the airlines are bound to fail in two to three months without government help.

HUNGER IN THE WORLD

The coronavirus pandemic will push an additional 130 million people to the brink of starvation. When added to the 821 million people already chronically hungry, that scenario would push more than 1 billion people into dire situations.

These are the hungriest countries in the world.
