COVID-19 Consumer Monitor

As COVID-19 continues to spread across the planet, we are seeing disruptions in many aspects of life.

The tracker is currently being run in UAE, KSA, Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong,  Indonesia, India, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Norway, Philippines, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, UK, and the US.
