Smaller-sized businesses have been battered during the six months of the coronavirus pandemic but are feeling confident about their ability to withstand a second wave, according to a survey released Tuesday.
While some 63% of small and midsized businesses said they are likely to lose at least a quarter of their revenue this year, some 78% overall said they feel at least somewhat confident they can handle another surge in Covid-19 cases in the fall and winter, the Comcast Business survey of nearly 600 small and midsize businesses showed.

Comcast Business is a subsidiary of Comcast, the parent company of NBC Universal and CNBC. KEEP READING
