The coronavirus crisis has forced many businesses to close, but some businesses are uniquely suited to the crisis with all kinds of businesses creatively learning to adapt to coronavirus. While many companies are struggling during the coronavirus pandemic, these five industries are booming.

So, instead of complaining about why this happens to us, why not we take a look at what are the opportunity around us, life must go on, right?

The outbreak of coronavirus has contributed to an increased demand for all kind of healthcare products like face mask, hand sanitizer, thermometer, Protective clothing and so on. Almost all countries in the world run out of these products. Those manufacturers work almost 24 hours to produce the products to fulfil the high demand during this time.
