    Dont forget dental. Most dentists are closed in the UK.. I think there should be a law or something put in place that in time of crisis if you have redundant medical stuff i.e dental, cosmetics etc they should all be re-deployed to aid either via basic nursing or in some other capacity. I'm not saying that's not the case now it may very well be - but there's not much mention of other departments pulling together to work as one (aside from the obvious)

    They are being redeployed as far as I know from friends and family. Those that can are being given quick training on ventilators. Students in similar field are being asked to volunteer to cheer up the elderly as well as take them to the loo etc.

    I think everyones trying their best to pull together where possible offer help to those needed

    The Department of Homeland Security has just classified the agriculture industry in America as a Critical Service. it has been part of the Critical Infrastructure since the Bush admin., but in light of current events, it got a promotion.

    https://fas.org/sgp/crs/RL32631.pdf

    Health services are in that PDF file I linked as well, and I'm sure they will do the same there as they did with agriculture. As in, put a finer point on it by determining specifically which parts of the medical field are critical services and which are not.

    So sorry ladies.....no fake boobs for awhile. ;)

    Online poker is much much juicier right now. All tables, over all limits, pots are bigger and way more players per flop. Which indicates to influx of tons of inexperienced players (loose with their money). While as I understood people gamble way less in the time of a crisis but doesn't seem like it affects poker tables. Then again poker isn't true 'gambling', you aren't guaranteed to lose, unlike when you're playing against the house.

    There is an industry that will never know the word crisis and that is for several fundamental reasons: currency trading. 30k in January just reached 250k, based on COVID-19 market sentiment. While I am sure many others mentioned here have their own solid piece of the pie, this one makes me very satisfied! Cheers, and stay safe!

    Pharma and healthcare are the obvious ones. I think digital marketing too has taken a hit

    Apart from the ones listed above I'd suggest you take a different approach. Launching a new site takes time as does building rank. Any business suffering from the lockdown is a target on the basis that you should sell a well performing web solution can gather sales regardless of the lockdown. As there are likely to be future waves of the Covid19 virus they perhaps cannot do much about the current situation but could be better prepared for the next. You sell on building that new solution so they are better prepared for the future and should be generating online sales wherever possible.

    Offering consultancy so that professionals like hypnotherapists, psychologists and psychotherapists (you get the drift) can take their work online instead of face to face. Set up website with payment portal via Stripe or Paypal and get Zoom (or similar) so patient and consultant can chat in virtual face to face then enter a session. Do a local biz search near you...they are all quitting and sitting home doing nothing as they are in isolation. Ride to rescue and bank. Think of all those suffering from anxiety etc who need help right now....

    I'm surprised no one mentioned the Federal Reserve, or your local Central Bank's printing mint.

    Forever... Free money .. from trees.. approved and legal business!
