Best and worst performing economies during Covid

The Covid-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the global economy with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) projecting that the GDP of the G20 nations will fall by a combined 4.1% in 2020.

However, as certain countries have borne the brunt of the pandemic, so too have certain economies. The OECD has released its GDP projections for 2020 and 2021 see http://oecd.org/coronavirus/en/#data . They have found some countries will see their economic output decimated, while others have been less badly affected.
