Research by Roy Morgan has found that 60 per cent of Australian businesses have now been affected by the coronavirus pandemic, compared with just 15 per cent in mid-February. The survey of more than 1,100 businesses also shows that 17 per cent of businesses have been affected ‘a great deal’ by the virus, up from two per cent in mid-February. Roy Morgan CEO Michele Levine notes that more than 70 per cent of businesses with turnover of at least $1m have reported being affected by the coronavirus, at a time when the economy is still recovering from the bushfires. She says the federal government’s stimulus package will need to be significantly increased to avert a devastating recession.
