Global Economic impact of Corona Virus
Immediate effects of Covid-19
Since the time the COVID-19 outbreak, it has affected over 200 countries. WHO (World Health Organization) in January 2020 announce the Pandemic. All of a sudden that led to shutting down many businesses. Stores, services airports all over the world remained closed for a period of time. Estimates so far indicate that Covid-19 restrictions could trim global economic growth by 3.0% to 6.0% in 2020. Furthermore we witness a global economic recession. We witness unseen unemployment rate since the Great Depression of the 1930s.
Long term effects of Covid-19
Obviously no one was prepared for such a situation. Serious annalists agreed that economic recession was going to rise levels of poverty and increase social unrest. On the other hand global trade could also fall by 15% to 30%. Of course there will be some specific differences from country to country. However the full impact wouldn’t be known until the effects of the pandemic peak. And assuming there is not a second wave of infections.
