As the lockdown measures are slowly rolled back the shape of the economic recovery will become apparent. Predictions range from a V to a lazy U shaped recovery. What is clear is that a raft of previously viable businesses will need continued assistance in order to ensure that they are able to continue to trade as the recovery develops.
