COVID-19 pandemic

TagLast edit: 15 Jul 2022 9:37 UTC by Lizka

The COVID-19 pandemic tag can cover posts about any aspect of the pandemic (biological, social, economic, etc.).

Cost of the pandemic

The Institute for Progress estimates that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused between $10 and $22 trillion dollars in economic damage and monetized health and life loss in the United States alone (which accounts for about 20% of gross world product and about 4% of world population).[1]
