The Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has highlighted economic disparities in the global demand in the crises of global interdependence and governance challenges. Epidemics are isolated concerns for businesses and prospects for emerging patterns and vulnerabilities. According to the current pandemic situation, strict measures are required for monitoring the situation, which in turn, affect businesses causing unanticipated short and long-term effects.

Consequently, epidemics and pandemics are problems for individual market and an enhancement of existing dynamics and limitations.
