Many small business (especially in London where land is monopolised and rents are extortionate) cannot survive the dramatic reduction in footfall due to the corona pandemic. At the very least rental payments  need to be cancelled during this time. Otherwise such businesses risk closure which will have a negative knock on effect economically and lead to an increasingly chain owned and centralised retail landscape. Today several fantastic retail businesses in Covent Garden declared closure after just two weeks of footfall reduction. Redemption, Covent Garden and several eateries in Covent Garden Market.
