The OECD released its latest Economic Outlook earlier this week, revealing the projected impact the COVID-19 pandemic will have on global GDP in 2020.

When assuming there will be no second wave of infections in 2020, gross domestic product is currently expected to be down by 6 percent on last year; but, as Statista’s Martin Armstrong notes, should we encounter a ‘double-hit’ scenario however, this is forecast to increase to a 7.6 percent drop.

Adding further context, the OECD writes:

“The COVID-19 pandemic is a global health crisis without precedent in living memory. It has triggered the most severe economic recession in nearly a century and is causing enormous damage to people’s health, jobs and well-being.”

As this infographic below shows, when looking at the ‘single-hit’ scenario, no country is projected to be hit harder than the United Kingdom. There, a fall of 11.5 percent is being predicted.
