# The number of COVID-19 cases has been increasing at an alarming rate in the US. The need for improved patient care and the adoption of drugs such as vitamin C, multivitamins, and antivirals, to improve immunity levels, have surged as a result.

# The normalization of the global economy is expected to proceed slowly, with a gradual increase in the manufacturing and transportation of raw materials and associated equipment; this will lead to market growth from Q1 2021.
