Looking for products to sell during these trying times is hard as hard can be. Retailers are losing, and losing badly. However, there are many others who seem to view the coronavirus as a unique business opportunity. Several online merchants actively promotes the link between their products and Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. Howbeit with exaggeration. But companies say consumers are making the connection themselves and seeking out their products. Confusion and panic abounds everywhere you go.
Many Industries are closing business
Industries that have flourished in the last 2-3 decades are laying off people and closing business. The travel industry in particular is hardest hit with the cities in lockdown around the glove. Leisure & hospitality, airline, construction, and manufacturing, service sector goes along with it.
Here is a sentiments from a business owner:
“If I can within the government guidelines keep the doors open, even at a low sales rate, I can keep my staff whole, and they don’t have to worry about their financial wellbeing,” said a store owner, who oversees 45 employees. “If I can keep the doors open, that’s the difference between laying people off and not laying people off.”
We are all affected by this in some form or another. This is the reality of the world situation.

#1. High-tech disinfectant devices.
At the onset of the pandemic, people all over the planet went into alcohol/disinfectant panic buying mode. Some really innovative entrepreneurs in Denmark made headlines on how they prevented people from buying disinfectants more than they need:
Some companies are now marketing high-tech disinfectant guns in response to the coronavirus. One person on LinkedIn showed how he used one to disinfect his seat on an airplane.
While you might normally have disinfectant sprayed from a bottle, these types of guns make use of charged particles to ensure that a substance fully covers a surface.
“We’re going to superclean it and every surface and toy that can be in there,” said superintendent Deena Bishop.
#2. Thermal scanning everywhere
In response to the coronavirus outbreak, some companies are moving quickly to integrate or advertise their existing thermal imaging capabilities. The technology scans a person from afar and estimates what their temperature is, so some think these systems could spot fevers and ultimately infected persons. We’ve already seen this integrated into facial recognition cameras in China, but now it’s showing up everywhere, as government are scrambling to provide better capabilities for their personnel to fight the disease.

After seven years of testing more than 30 air purifiers, a purifier company believe that their product is the best covid-19 prevention machine.
One air purifier manufacturer says that there air purifier can, within 30 minutes, reduce heavy smoke pollution in a 135-square-foot, 1,215-cubic-foot New York office by as much as 98.9 percent.
