This year's COVID-19 pandemic is the most serious global health crisis since the Spanish
Influenza, and it's on track to be one of the most devastating economic disasters of recent times.
The purpose of this page is to present an overview of COVID-19's influence on the world's
economies, as well as the processes through which the pandemic has affected them, such as shifts
in supply and demand.
The current pandemic differs significantly from previous pandemics in two important
ways, both of which are linked to globalism: 1) disease transmission has been much faster than in
previous pandemics, prompting large-scale containment policies to be implemented almost
simultaneously around the world, and 2) value chains have been abruptly disrupted, resulting in a
global economic halt. The epidemic of Covid-19 has had a significant impact on people's lives and
livelihoods. It has also interrupted global economic activity as a result of this. In particular, in
2020, global merchandise trade flows will decrease by 7%. Because of the pandemic's direct health
impact and accompanying behavioral changes, the repercussions of government attempts to
prevent the virus from spreading to third nations, and the pandemic's impact in third countries are
all likely to disrupt international trade.
A quick jump in worldwide demand for COVID-19-related medical products, which
exceeded existing domestic production levels, resulted in increased import demand and price
increases as a result of the novel coronavirus pandemic's immediate trade impact. Export limits
imposed by large economies facing shortages have resulted in price rises of up to 20.5 percent in
the case of surgical masks, according to the World Bank. Pandemics, on the other hand, have a
long-term negative impact on overall demand. On the demand side, the pandemic works through
multiple transmission routes such as reduced household spending and increased company
uncertainty about future demand which depresses corporate investment, according to Correia,
Luck, and Verner (2020). As a result, the true cost of COVID-19 will be far higher than the direct
health expenses of treating cases. In fact, the disease's indirect costs will significantly outweigh
the price of testing, treating, and hospitalizing people. The extent of these indirect costs, including
economic damage, will be determined by the duration of the pandemic, the steps taken by
governments to contain it, the impact of and public adherence to government-imposed behavioural
measures such as physical separation, as well as the amount of financial assistance governments
and development agencies are willing to provide during the pandemic's immediate aftermath.
