With the recent global pandemic of SARS COV2, citizens worldwide have been requested to remain within houses to prevent further spread of infection. As hospitals are overburdened with newer patients and the number of available patient beds decline, many non-critical patients are sent back home to recover. However, often such patients require immediate medical attention as symptoms worsen. Paramedics are therefore required to show up at patient houses and administer immediate treatment. As houses are remote settings with limited medical resources, paramedics carry specialty bags that enable them to tote essential medical supplies when needed. The demand for medical specialty bags is therefore expected to see an upsurge owing to the increased frequency of house visits by paramedics in covid-19 affected regions. We are working to account for this surge in our estimates. The updated report will account for Covid-19 as a key market contributor.
