Pandemic casualties as retail stores have to close due to China Virus lockdowns



Here is a list of just some of the stores who have been affected by the lockdowns that have taken place as a result of the China Virus. I am sure that the Biden tax hikes on many of these businesses making over $400,000 is not going to help either. A record 10,000 more retail stores may close their doors in 2021 (Forbes). Small businesses casualties from the China Virus number over 100,000 (Washington Post)
