El estado de alarma ha alterado nuestra vida cotidiana. Salir a la calle ahora está limitado; la compra de alimentos es una de las excepciones para hacerlo. Aunque, no está recomendado salir a la calle para evitar la propagación del coronavirus.

Es por eso que los servicios de entrega de comida a domicilio se están sometiendo a una creciente demanda, lo que provoca que los trabajadores de estos servicios estén enfrentándose a grandes riesgos.

El lunes, la empresa anunció que contrataría a 100 mil trabajadores y aumentaría temporalmente el pago en dólares por hora para mantenerse al día. Solo acepta envíos a sus almacenes de productos esenciales como comestibles, suministros médicos y alimentos para mascotas de comerciantes independientes que venden artículos en sus sitios web.

El minorista en línea tiene que equilibrar la satisfacción de la demanda del consumidor al tiempo que mantiene a los trabajadores seguros, una tarea difícil cuando cosas como desinfectantes para manos y toallitas son difíciles de encontrar.

This isn’t business as usual, and it’s a time of great stress and uncertainty. It’s also a moment in time when the work we’re doing is its most critical.

We’ve changed our logistics, transportation, supply chain, purchasing, and third party seller processes to prioritize stocking and delivering essential items like household staples, sanitizers, baby formula, and medical supplies. We’re providing a vital service to people everywhere, especially to those, like the elderly, who are most vulnerable. People are depending on us.

I’m not alone in being grateful for the work you are doing. I’ve received hundreds of emails from customers and seen posts on social media thanking you all. Your efforts are being noticed at the highest levels of government, and President Trump earlier this week thanked this team profusely.

Across the world, people are feeling the economic effects of this crisis, and I’m sad to tell you I predict things are going to get worse before they get better. We’re hiring for 100,000 new roles and raising wages for our hourly workers who are fulfilling orders and delivering to customers during this period of stress and turmoil. At the same time, other businesses like restaurants and bars are being forced to shut their doors. We hope people who’ve been laid off will come work with us until they’re able to go back to the jobs they had.

Much of the essential work we do cannot be done from home. We’ve implemented a series of preventative health measures for employees and contractors at our sites around the world — everything from increasing the frequency and intensity of cleaning to adjusting our practices in fulfillment centers to ensure the recommended social distancing guidelines. We are meeting every day, working to identify additional ways to improve on these measures.

We’ve placed purchase orders for millions of face masks we want to give to our employees and contractors who cannot work from home, but very few of those orders have been filled. Masks remain in short supply globally and are at this point being directed by governments to the highest-need facilities like hospitals and clinics. It’s easy to understand why the incredible medical providers serving our communities need to be first in line. When our turn for masks comes, our first priority will be getting them in the hands of our employees and partners working to get essential products to people.

There is no instruction manual for how to feel at a time like this, and I know this causes stress for everyone. My list of worries right now — like yours I’m sure — is long: from my own children, parents, family, friends, to the safety of you, my colleagues, to those who are already very sick, and to the real harm that will be caused by the economic fallout across our communities.

Otro punto de interés, dicen en el mercado, es la situación de las empresas de telecomunicaciones (Entel es el principal actor del mercado que cotiza en bolsa y ayer sus acciones subieron 3%), actual sostén de las comunicaciones entre personas y el comercio electrónico.

Sobre esto último, Castro indica que se ha visto un aumento en las ventas de e-commerce. Además, indicó que en los casos específicos de compañías que ofrecen servicios de Internet y televisión por cable “se podría ver un aumento en las ventas producto de los mayores GB de tráfico que ocupen los clientes”.

Otro escenario corresponde al de los supermercados, que también han visto incrementada su demanda online e incluso han debido tomar medidas para evitar el desabastecimiento.

El analista de renta variable de MBI Inversiones, Sébastien Fresard, aseguró que “las empresas de retail tienen un escenario desafiante, y deberían mostrar resultados dispares entre sus negocios. Por un lado las tiendas por departamentos y el sector de mejoramiento del hogar deberían verse afectados, pero los supermercados deberían tener un desempeño positivo”.

Desde Vector Capital advierten que este efecto podría ser a corto plazo. Look at more info. “Una vez que se arregle y se vuelva a la normalidad, estos servicios deberían volver a los niveles precuarentena. Debiera ser un efecto netamente ligado a esto”, expresaron.

Putting the brakes on

While Apple hasn't made any official announcement yet, 9to5Mac has spotted a reduction in video quality in Europe in recent days – quite an aggressive reduction in fact, though it may even out over time.

Netflix and YouTube were the first streaming services to fall in line with the EU directive, though it now appears that everyone with a video platform is going to be taking steps to tackle the huge increase in people stuck at home.

While network operators have said they are confident that there's enough spare capacity in the system to cope with everyone becoming habitual binge watchers, it would appear that no one wants to take any chances.

As yet there's no sign of similar movies in the US or elsewhere.  At the same time, tech companies are busy pushing out trustworthy coronavirus information through apps and sites that are easy to access.
