The COVID-19 outbreak started in December 2019 in Wuhan (China), and it has spread to ~100 countries across the world, with the World Health Organization (WHO) stating it as a public health emergency. The global impacts of COVID-19 are being felt across several markets. Although the healthcare sector had witnessed SARS, H1N1, and other outbreaks in the last few years, the severity of the COVID-19 has made the situation more complicated due to its mode of transmission. North America has been witnessing a growing number of COVID-19 cases since its outbreak. For instance, according to Worldometer, the number of cases increased to 7,679,908 with 215,039 deaths reported in the US as of October 06, 2020. The cases are also increasing in Mexico and Canada. In Mexico, the cases have reached 761,665, with 79,088 deaths. Similarly, in Canada, there are about 168,960 COVID-19 cases, with 9,504 deaths reported so far.

Several companies are cutting their clinical trial activities in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, slashing clinical trial activity will affect the timelines for Eli Lilly's late-phase trials of mirikizumab in gastrointestinal indications. According to their listings on ClinicalTrials.gov., the phase 3 trials for mirikizumab in Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis have primary completion dates ranging from September 2020 to late 2023, which can be a confirmed delay. However, in long run, the demand is expected to increase. For instance, according to the estimates reported by Ironwood Pharmaceutical, the demand for prescription drug product LINZESS—indicated for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C) and chronic idiopathic constipation—is expected to increase by 11% from the demand in 2019. Therefore, the growing demand for the constipation treatment in North America in long-term period is likely to boost the growth of the gastrointestinal drugs market.
