The effect of this global pandemic on the economy is unprecedented and intertwined with the health of communities and individuals. However, the priority must be placed on public health and each human life. The economy can come back, but death is irreversible.
- The World Bank has the latest on the effects on the global economy.
- The UN has launched the UN framework for the immediate socio-economic response on COVID-19.
- The UNDSG, Ms. Amina Mohammed, has launched the ‘Rise For All’ Campaign to support the UN roadmap for the socio-economic recovery from COVID-19.
“The economic impact is and will be severe, but the faster the virus stops, the quicker and stronger the recovery will be.”
