Description

The spread of the corona virus (COVID-19) causes not only a high number of illnesses and deaths but also enormous economic damage. For many developing countries and emerging markets, whose economic development is fragile irrespective of this pandemic, the economic consequences may be even more serious than for most industrialized nations. In the following focus paper, we explore and discuss the socio-economic outcome of the pandemic for the most vulnerable regions of the world.
