In brief

This week many businesses in Asia continue to take a toll from the global COVID-19 lockdown, with mass layoffs and furloughs ensuing.

However, some businesses, especially those serving customers stuck at home, are booming, and companies are scrambling to expand at unprecedented rates and grab their market share.

Although this week China saw the lockdown lifted in Wuhan, startup giants Luckin Coffee and iQiyi have been embroiled in scandal as both companies stand accused of grossly inflating revenues.
