The coronavirus outbreak could damage international economic growth this past year, the IMF mind mentioned on Sunday, but a sharp and quick economic collapse could follow.
"There might be a cut which we're still hoping would maintain the 0.1-0.2 percentage area," the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, Kristalina Georgieva, informed the International Women's Forum in Dubai.
She said the complete effects of the spreading disease that has killed more than 1,600 individuals would depend on how fast it was included.
"I advise everyone to not jump to early conclusions. There's still a whole lot of uncertainty. We function with situations, not with projections, ask me in 10 days," Georgieva said.
In its January upgrade to the World Economic Outlook, the IMF reduced global economic growth prediction in 2020 with a 0.1 percentage point to 3.3 percent, after a 2.9 percent increase the prior calendar year, the lowest in a decade.
Georgieva said it was"too premature" to evaluate the entire effect of the outbreak but acknowledged it had affected industries like tourism and transport.
"It's too premature to say because we do not yet quite understand what's the nature of the virus. We do not understand how fast China is going to have the ability to include it. We do not know if it is going to propagate to the rest of the planet," she explained.
In the event the illness is"comprised quickly, there may be a sharp fall and a very quick rebound", in what's called the V-shaped effect, " she said.
When compared with the effect of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) at 2002, " stated China's market subsequently made up only 8.0 percent of international market. Now, that amount is 19 percent.
She stated the trade arrangement between the USA and China, the world's first and second markets, had decreased the disease's effect on international market.
However, the world ought to be worried"about slow growth" affected by doubt, " said the IMF main.
"We're now stuck with reduced productivity growth, reduced economic growth, low rates of interest and low inflation," she told the Dubai forum, attended by US President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka and former British prime minister Theresa May.
