“On the plus side, COVID-19 vaccines were being distributed, showing that the COVID-19 detrimental effects will be lessened dramatically later in 2021.”
On the minus side, the virus appeared to pose a danger to economic stability, especially in areas where it was already widespread, and it threatened to become a concern elsewhere if new and more virulent strains of the virus spread widely.”
Also in countries where the epidemic was spread, social distancing interventions to prevent a new outbreak had a negative economic effect, according to the study, which added that the priority for politicians was to monitor the existing outbreak, protect those who had been affected by it, and speed up the delivery of approved vaccines.
