Coronavirus – Turnover halved, social distancing now a priority (Agoria) Almost three weeks after the first measures against the coronavirus were taken in our country, the turnover of the technology companies has been halved compared to March of last year. This is shown by a new survey of 190 technology companies conducted by the technology federation Agoria. Marc Lambotte, CEO of Agoria: ‘If you notice that the drop in turnover is caused by a decline in demand and reduced availability of employees, it is clear that the measures of social distancing are strictly necessary to keep our economy running. This is the only way to contain the virus and to keep our healthcare and economy afloat. So I call on companies and people at home to keep a distance and save our jobs. We are all in the same boat, and must all assume our responsibility.”
