Corona update #3; Personal Care shows largest increase

The fact that we cannot have our hair and nails done at the hairdresser’s or in a beauty salon is clearly visible in the order numbers handled by the Onetrail platform. The order numbers for Personal Care devices show a significant increase in volume. Headsets and microphones are also popular, probably to make working from home as pleasant as possible for all housemates. In addition, games and sports equipment again show a remarkably large order volume.
