COVID-19 in Developing Economies

Edited by Simeon Djankov () and Ugo Panizza

in Vox eBooks from Centre for Economic Policy Research

Abstract: At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was hoped that warm weather and younger populations would shield many developing countries from the virus. This hope has not been realised. While the pandemic is mostly under control in many advanced economies, some developing countries in Africa and Latin America are registering an increase in the number of cases and may suffer long lasting consequences from the pandemic. This eBook, Co-published with the International Development Policy journal at the Graduate Institute in Geneva, summarises the early work focusing on developing and emerging economies.
