Amazon’s business was booming at the beginning of the coronavirus epidemic. For example in France, the coronavirus epidemic hit Amazon. The company had to close some of its warehouses in the country during the first lockdown.
But as the epidemic intensifies, people are starting to rely on online shopping. The company said they were working on adequate hygiene.
Face masks are being provided among the staff. They even increase the cleanliness of the office building. They also launched a pilot scheme for covid-19 testing of workers in the UK.
From July to September in this year Amazon sold $96.1 billion, a 37 percent increased from the same period in 2019.
The profit has been a record $6.3 billion dollars. However, it is not right to take so much income without any expenditure.
According to Amazon, the company’s Covid-19 related expenses at the time were $2.5 billion.
