In its latest June Economic Projections Report, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) underscored concerns over the global economic outlook in 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic has triggered the most severe economic recession in nearly a century.
It gave forecasts for a scenario where there is a single hit from the coronavirus crisis, and for a second scenario where another wave of rapid contagion erupts later in 2020, per Reuters.
