In cases where a customer is able to show that statements a salesman made are fraudulent, salespeople accused of fraud regularly invoke various legal rules and contract clauses to shield themselves from liability. Franchisors often use these rules and contract clauses to defend themselves when franchisees claim the franchisor misrepresented the terms of a deal.

That will most probably be due to “seasonality”, that is a reduction in transmissions similar to that seen with influenza with the onset of summer.hould Deal with the Impact of COVID-19.
