The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) surprised the public health community and caused the whole world in panic. The Covid-19, a zoonotic disease, is recognized as a pandemic by the World Health Organization on 11 March 2020. As of this writing, more than three million cases of Covid-19 have been reported and the number of confirmed cases and deaths keep increasing every day. Initially, the outbreak of Covid-19 triggered a supply and demand shock in China. However, as this infectious disease spreads rapidly across the world, it has now caused a global shock.
Significant economic pain seems unavoidable in all affected countries and the risk of financial instability is high. The biggest immediate economic costs of Covid-19 are primarily due to the policies implemented by the governments to prevent the spread of infection. The lockdown action hits a country’s supply and demand. The closure of businesses and services, along with the travel and movement controls will have outsized impacts on domestic consumption and business investment. When all the affected countries in a region follow the similar action, this is amplifying the mutual shocks through not just flows of trade and tourists, but also finance and the other sectors.
