The current pandemic has largely changed the world across all sectors of the society. In this paper, we shall specifically look into the effect Covid-19 has had on Chinese social and commercial sector over the time of its existence. Things that normally occurred physically, have taken a toll and nowadays occur virtually thanks to the presence of web connections and streaming platforms. Precisely, our focus in this case is on the Chinese spring festivals and the impact coronavirus has had on the attendance and normal activities. Firstly, physical meetings to celebrate the festivals were entirely done away with by the Chinese government meaning people had to change and their modes of attendance. With this, the festivals generally took place virtually such that online streaming of events surged. The number of virtual attendees in hand with the demand for streaming services therefore grew tremendously and such developments has a number of implications. For example, revenue earned by the corporations that offer streaming services generally increased and for celebrities that took part in the festivals in terms of performance had their income secured. Therefore, COVID-19 largely affected a number of social activities in China for example shifting to online sales and purchases alters consumer culture but still, there are a number of positive developments
