Good News from Ecommerce & Business - 16 November 2020

18 November 2020

Well...this week there is good news everywhere we look. Vaccines seem to be sprouting up everywhere. The hospital admission rate appears to be levelling off, and in parts of Spain they are even reporting a R0 of 0.78. We are not sure if that means the government will reinstate Christmas but let's hope...

Meanwhile, in the world of business, we still see a determined and well-funded push to instigate, optimise and grow further on-line channels - and that requires people.
