Indian River Consulting Group’s weekly Pandemic Revenue Index for the work week of July 20-24 indicated a 7.6% decrease compared with the same week a year ago.
IRCG’s distributor Pandemic Revenue Index gives distributors a weekly quantified view into how other distributors in the industry are faring as the global COVID-19 pandemic progresses.
“The index has presented an unnerving sense of stability during the month of July, and this is probably what we can expect until COVID-19 is behind us. However, we’re closer to going back into lockdown than we were last week, and federal stimulus is still a big question mark. Hopefully, we’re not about to drop off our current plateau,” says Mike Emerson, IRCG partner.
