Nevertheless, if serious and preventive management is not provided, in short term, the turbulences that the novel virus would create over the global economy could be irreversible. In view of these issues, the present report is an attempt to illustrate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global economy and the measures that have been taken or should be taken in the face of this crisis.
