The Coronavirus pandemic caused severe economic disruptions last year as households, governments, and businesses adopted a variety of mandatory and voluntary measures—collectively referred to as social distancing—to limit in-person interactions that could spread the virus. The impact was much more severe on particular sectors of the economy, such as travel and hospitality, and job losses were accelerated across most sectors.
Over the course of this year, vaccination is expected to greatly reduce the number of new cases of COVID-19. As a result, the extent of social distancing is expected to decline.
In this webinar we shall discuss the regional projections on a macro and micro economic level focusing on Uganda. We shall also look at how best businesses can recover from the earlier effects of the COVID19 pandemic. Keeping in mind that the challenge could be a permanent one.
