Retail sales posted some major declines during February and March in China, at the height of the coronavirus and they kept declining until July, although the decline was slowing considerably. In August they finally turned positive and have kept increasing since then. In fact, the pace of the increase has increased as well, putting sales to the pre-coronavirus levels. In February and march we saw some extraordinary numbers, although the Chinese New year has skewed the numbers to the upside, so let's see how April will be.
