Congressional Research Service,Global Economic Effects of COVID 19. The World Health Organization WHO first declared COVID 19 a world health emergency in. January 2020 on March 11 it announced the viral outbreak was officially a pandemic the highest. level of health emergency 1 Since then the emergency has evolved into a global public health and. economic crisis that has affected the 90 trillion global economy beyond anything experienced in. nearly a century The virus has been detected in over 200 countries and all U S states 2 In early. March 2020 the focal point of infections shifted from China to Europe especially Italy but by. April the focus had shifted to the United States where the number of infections was accelerating. The infection has sickened more than 47 million people about one fourth in the United States. with more than 1 2 million fatalities At one point more than 80 countries had closed their. borders to arrivals from countries with infections ordered businesses to close instructed their. populations to self quarantine and closed schools to an estimated 1 5 billion children 3. Governments are attempting to balance often competing policy objectives between addressing the. public health crisis and economic considerations that include but are not limited to these. Confronting ballooning budget deficits weighed against increasing spending to. support unemployed workers and social safety nets, Providing financial support for national health systems that are under pressure to. develop vaccines while also funding efforts to care for and safeguard citizens. Implementing monetary and fiscal policies that support credit markets and. sustain economic activity while also assisting businesses under financial distress. Implementing fiscal policies to stimulate economic activity while consumers in. developed economies have maintained high rates of saving relative to pre. pandemic rates as households face limited spending opportunities or a form of. involuntary saving and concerns over their jobs incomes and the course of their. economies or precautionary saving, Intervening in sovereign debt and corporate bond markets by central banks and. monetary authorities to stabilize markets and insure liquidity while also raising. concerns among some analysts that this intervention is compromising the ability. of the markets to perform their traditional functions of pricing risk and allocating. Adopting fiscal and monetary policies to address the immediate impact of the. health crisis compared with the mix of such policies between assisting. households firms or state and local governments that may be needed going. forward should the health and economic crises persist. Differing national approaches to providing government funded economic support. to workers that vary between short term unemployment insurance programs to. 1 Bill Chappell COVID 19 COVID 19 Is Now Officially a Pandemic WHO Says National Public Radio March. 11 2020 https www npr org sections goatsandsoda 2020 03 11 814474930 COVID 19 COVID 19 is now officially. a pandemic who says, 2 Mapping the Spread of the COVID 19 in the U S and Worldwide Washington Post Staff Washington Post March. 4 2020 https www washingtonpost com world 2020 01 22 mapping spread new COVID 19 arc404 true. 3 The Day the World Stopped How Governments Are Still Struggling to Get Ahead of the COVID 19 The.

A growing list of economic indicators makes it clear the COVID 19 pandemic is negatively. affecting global economic growth on a scale not experienced since at least the global financial. crisis of 2008 2009 5 U S and European economies experienced the beginnings of a recovery in. the third quarter with the U S economy growing by 7 4 or an annual rate of 33 and the. Eurozone economy growing by 12 7 That recovery may be weakened by a resurgence of. infectious cases in September and October and a return to lockdowns To date the global. pandemic has affected a broad swath of international economic and trade activities from services. generally to tourism and hospitality medical supplies and other global value chains consumer. electronics and financial markets to energy transportation food and a range of social activities. to name a few In particular the health crisis is negatively affecting the economies of developing. countries that are constrained by limited financial resources and where health systems have. quickly become overloaded The International Monetary Fund IMF estimated in October 2020. the economic fallout from the pandemic could push 100 million to 110 million people in Sub. Saharan Africa and South Asia into extreme poverty reversing a decades long trend 6 However. the IMF indicated that spending on social programs to limit the impact of the pandemic could. reduce the number of people falling into extreme poverty to 80 to 90 million. Without a clear understanding of when the global health and economic effects may peak and a. greater understanding of the impact on economies forecasts must necessarily be considered. preliminary Similarly estimates of when any recovery might begin and the speed of the recovery. are speculative Forecasts have been updated several times during the first three quarters of 2020. to incorporate additional data initially reflecting worsening global and national economic growth. estimates but also reflecting more positive data in the third quarter. Efforts to reduce social interaction to contain the spread of the virus are disrupting the daily lives. of most Americans and adding to the economic costs Increased rates of unemployment are. raising the prospects of social unrest in developed economies where lost incomes and health. insurance are threatening living standards and in developing economies where populations. reportedly have raised concerns over access to basic necessities and the prospects of rising levels. of poverty 7 U N Secretary General Antonio Guterres argued in a video conference before the. U N Security Council on April 10 2020 that, T he pandemic also poses a significant threat to the maintenance of international peace. and security potentially leading to an increase in social unrest and violence that would. greatly undermine our ability to fight the disease 8.
