Coronavirus: what is the economic impact?
09-03-2020 | STATEC


The appearance and spread of Covid-19 occurs in an already difficult global economic context and is an additional factor of slowdown. At the beginning of March, little data is available to judge its real economic impact, particularly regarding the measures taken to prevent the spread of the contagion. Nevertheless, the new virus represents a threat that could significantly reduce global, European and national activity in the short term, especially if the epidemic spreads rapidly.

This outlook anticipates certain results of the medium-term forecast to be published by STATEC on Wednesday 11th of March 2020.
