It’s been 12 23 days since the World Health Organization proclaimed the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. In the U.S., as of March 23 April 3, there have been approximately 38,500 245,000 cases and over 400 6,000 deaths due to the virus.

Building materials and assets in a construction site are typically high-priced and sometimes, even unprocurable if exported from a different country.
