shipping after covid19

wonder what to expect to world wide shipping in the recovery from this virus, that, and the us govts arm military sealift command, like the uk RFa... their budgets must be broken now, msc, has covid19 infections on a few ships, plus areal pickle they are in, the office, through unofficial channels issued a gangway up order, to which crews notified labour and they acted, now msc facing its day in the dock on this... anyone think msc will win this or crews will get a heavy compensation... if that happens, could this just bring down the roof on that agency.

I feel really sorry for crews due for payoff and there are not any flights to get them home.
After the worst of this is over I would expect a big downturn of work.
Back to the 1930's when you heard stories of ships with 6 AB's each with a Master FG certificate
Hope I am all wrong over this!
