There is reason to hope that the spread of the virus in the world will be limited in the near future, but a rapid return to previous economic levels is, in my opinion, unlikely. Despite the great state support, there will be irreversible damage to the economy and, for example, this summer's tourist season is likely to be lost. China's economic activity has also reached 80-90% of its previous level at best, and it is currently feeling a decline in demand from the rest of the world. Support measures in the West will mitigate the negative effects of the crisis, but other countries have very limited opportunities to support their economies. Already, 90 of the 189 member states of the International Monetary Fund have requested IMF financial assistance to overcome the crisis, and unlike in 2009, the economic downturn is also expected in developing countries.
