Countries adopted a nationwide lockdown as a first step to contain the coronavirus, and for that all economic activities and everyday life stopped, empty cities and streets feels like hollows. This paper discusses the global economic impact of the coronavirus and the possible outlook of the global economy after the pandemic ends.
