The distributors are connected with large mail order comic book services here in the U.S. (Discount Comic Book Service and Midtown Comics).

I think what DC is trying to do is make new comic books available at a time when they (DC) don't want to lose momentum / readers. The longer this goes on without new comic books, the greater the chances of people losing interest in reading and buying new comic books in the future. Plus, here in the U.S., the entire country is not shutdown. All those requirements were put in place by the different states, theoretically based on things like how serious the situations were where they are located. (There's also a lot of politics involved, too, but let's not get into that.) Some states still have stricter requirements as to what businesses can or cannot be open, while others have already started allowing places like hair salons and tattoo parlors to reopen.
So by DC having these alternative distributors provide comic books to stores, stores that can be open will have new product that can be sold to customers. That means more potential sales for those stores, and it could help some stores stay in business. Plus, it allows DC to employ writers, artists, etc. who otherwise might not have any new income coming in.
As for other countries, I don't know all the logistics involved with those, but if DC is making new comic books available for here in the U.S. (and possibly in parts of Canada?), I'm assuming alternatives could eventually be put in place to provide comic books to stores that are open for business in other countries.

I think your analisys of the situation is absolutely correct, I hadn't considered those elements.

That's completely true and important, MajorHoy  Wink

I  had also read somewhere that Dc basically told LCS outside North Am to continue ordering at Diamond for now, we'll see what will comes out next 20 May. Cool

This is so true that another U.S. historical comic book shop, San Diego Comics (after Lee's Comics last month) can't wait for Diamond to restart distribution and will close permanently in a few days... Crying or Very sad

Well, they could also have been a victim of decreasing interest in new comic books from (former) collectors who aren't satisfied with the current (pre-coronavirus) output / current cover prices.
