Annual Prime Day has been postponing by Amazon in both India and Canada because both these countries worse suffering from the wave of Covid-19 disease. Thus the organization confirmed delaying this two-day discount event in these countries, but yet not provide any other rescheduled date in either country.
In 2015 Amazon released Prime Day. The discount event is apparently designed to protect new Prime members, promote their own services and products of Amazon, and serve a sales boost in year’s middle.
Over the past few months, India has a sharp uptick in covid cases reported, with the nation accounting for 46% of new Coronavirus cases worldwide in the last week. The country transcends over 20 million reported Covid-19 cases earlier this week, and according to news media reports, burial grounds and crematoriums are completely overwhelmed with Covid-19 dead bodies.
This is the reason why most of the states in the country have accentuated restrictions in the last few weeks, like curfews and lockdowns. In April, the rate of new Coronavirus infections in Canada overtook that of the U.S. for the very first time while this pandemic began. Canada has gone through lagging vaccination rates in comparison with the U.S.
Outside of India and Canada, Amazon announced Prime Day will conduct in other nations including the U.K., U.S., France, Germany, China, and Spain. In the first quarter of earnings results, Amazon declared that Prime Day will happen in June of this year.
