Covid-19 Scenario-

– The covid-19 outbreak has led to inconsistent and interrupted supply chain activities and lack of human resources. This has created numerous challenges for the industry.

– The lockdowns imposed to curb the spread had resulted in shutdown of neurological wards and clinics across several countries.
