The Ecommerce News Roundup – 21 September 2020

We are going to stick our necks out and declare that we don’t think there will be another lockdown.The only number which really matters is hospital admissions and these are not growing at anything like the rate they were at the beginning of the pandemic. Even in Spain, a spike in admissions looks to be just that – a spike and there are consistent signs that they are now reducing not growing.

Back to the world of facts – the economy is bouncing back with 6% growth reported last month and this is led by our not-so-little eco-system of digital marketing and ecommerce.
