Cinemas struggle amid coronavirus pandemic


Los Angeles (US)/Beijing (China), Oct 20 (EFE), (Camera: Javier Romualdo/Sebastião Moreir).- Without any major releases scheduled between now and the end of the year, cinemas are dying on their feet. James Bond’s latest, No Time To Die, Black Widow, West Side Story and Dune has all been slated to premiere this fall but their respective studios have decided to put the release on hold due to the pandemic. Only Wonder Woman 1984 is due to hit the silver screen this Christmas period after being postponed several times. A number of films destined for cinematic releases will now be offered on digital streaming sites instead. Although countries like China have managed to somewhat recover the industry with the pandemic largely under control, the rest of the world is wondering what will be left of it once Covid-19 subsides.

  • US Banks Decide On Closure Strategies Amid Covid Surge

    According to Business Insider, as coronavirus cases continue to increase, US banks are evaluating their branch closures based on a location-by-location strategy. Although none of the four largest banks in the U.S. have announced closures, smaller banks are making big changes. Some are limiting in-person banking to appointments only, opening drive-thru service, and even closing branches if they are located in COVID hotspots. However, new shifts in consumer habits may allow banks to close during the surge, and even permanently in the long term. According to Business Insider, there is an uptick in digital banking. It's up over 73%, with an expected increase to over 79% in the next five years.
