COVID-19: Economics


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 economic impact is and will be severe, but the faster the virus stops, the quicker and stronger the recovery will be.”

– Kirstalina Georgieva, Managing Director, International Monetary Fund
