For many Americans, picking up a video game controller has become the way that they relax after work, or just when they feel like it. 

As many Americans are ordered to stay indoors due to the coronavirus pandemic, esports has become a way for people to stay in touch and also work off stress from being cooped up inside twenty-four hours a day. 

The U.S. has over one million of the world's three million cases of the coronavirus. 

There are over 230,000 deaths from the virus worldwide. The U.S. has around 60,000 deaths.

So, what kind of boon is esports seeing?

Ann Hand, CEO of Super League Gaming, which is a Nasdaq traded stock under the ticker  (SLGG) , joined TheStreet's Katherine Ross to talk about her company's stock and what she's seeing from her sector.

Hand also discussed how the coronavirus pandemic has really shone a light on the sector, as well as her company, which was the first esports company to begin trading on Wall Street in Feb. 2019. 

The stock is up around 30% in the past month but is down around 58% in the past year.
