In a recent interview, EPoD's Faculty Director Rema Hanna discusses the economic impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak. She comments on the particularly devastating effects of a pandemic, such as the novel coronavirus, for developing countries. Rema's research revolves around improving the provision of public services in developing and emerging nations, particularly for the very poor.

“For developing countries, the economic impact will be particularly devastating as they have fewer resources and lower borrowing ability to raise the funds needed to provide the kinds of health and economic support their citizens need.”
