China's economy has been driven by online livestreaming, as livestreaming platforms and ecommerce are prospering despite the fight against COVID-19.
With the emergence of new sales methods, livestreaming host has become a new profession.
About 3,000 livestreaming hosts have been promoting their products, especially seafood, from dawn to dusk in Haitou county of Lianyungang, East China's Jiangsu province.
