Hi. Given regulatory demand for more granular analyses on impact of Covid19 on the economy, I would like to request for data on reported business closures and affected employees covering March 15, 2020 to August 15, 2020. Said information will greatly help in my work as risk analyst in scoping the depth of the impact of lockdowns and Covid19 on the economy. Thank you so much.
