Poll results: impact of a virus

The human toll is rising. So is supply chain uncertainty.

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Since HBSDealer posted its poll question on the topic of the coronavirus a week ago, confirmed cases of infection have risen from 17,000 to more than 31,000. The death toll has increased from under 400 to almost 640.

Beyond the human impact of the virus, the impact on industry is growing. Equipment manufacturer Deere has temporarily shut down facilities in China, and others have followed suit.

HBSDealer readers were asked: “What’s been the impact of the coronavirus on your business?” Here are the responses, after more than 120 votes:

  • Supply chain uncertainty: 39%
  • No impact: 34%
  • Boosted sales of masks: 14%
  • Travel disruption: 13%

The poll remains open on the right side of this page (or scroll down your mobile device).
