IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva predicts the onset of a deeper recession than in 2009 due to the coronavirus pandemic. She stated this in her video address on March 27, following a meeting of representatives of the IMF governing body, the International Monetary and Financial Committee.

“We have revised the growth prospects for 2020 and 2021. Now it has become clear that we have entered a recession - the same bad or worse than in 2009,” the head of the IMF said.

According to her, the Fund is working on a project to restore economies in 2021. At the moment, it is important to localize the coronavirus, and to prevent the transformation of liquidity problems into a solvency problem. The main concern of the IMF is the risk of a wave of bankruptcies and layoffs that can not only undermine recovery, but also destroy the structure of society.
