Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic started as a health crisis with a spatially uneven incidence of infections and fatalities across countries and regions, and across sections of society and age groups. A number of factors have influenced the spatial concentration of cases including population density, economic activity,
demographic and health factors. The initial socio-economic impact of the crisis has also been uneven across individual countries, regions and cities, determined
not only by the severity of the health outbreak and the stringency of the containment measures, but also by other factors such as economic exposure and
fiscal capacity of discretionary policies.
