COVID-19 Smashes Europe's Economic Sentiment In March

European Commission says confidence drops dramatically both in eurozone, EU due to new coronavirus.

The COVID-19 pandemic dropped economic confidence sharply both in the European Union and the eurozone in March, the European Commission announced on Monday.
In March, the Economic Sentiment Indicator (ESI) fell by 8.2 points to 94.8 in EU27 and 8.9 points to reach 94.5 in the eurozone, according to a press release issued by the commission.
The eurozone/euro area or the EA19 represents member states that use the single currency -- euro -- while the EU27 includes all member countries of the bloc.
The statement noted: "Also the Employment Expectations Indicator (EEI) plummeted (by 10.9 points to 94.1 in the euro area and by 9.7 points to 94.8 in the EU)."
The strong ESI decline in the euro area stemmed from "slumping confidence among consumers and in all the business sectors."
"The collapse was particularly strong in services and retail trade," it added.
Amongst the largest euro-area economies, the ESI decreased mostly in Italy by 17.6 points, while Germany (-9.8 points), France (-4.9), the Netherlands (-4) and Spain (-3.4) followed it.
Italy and Spain, with nearly 180,000 cases and more than 17,500 deaths in total, are the countries where the virus has suffered the most.
"Importantly, in many countries, the vast majority of survey responses were collected before strict containment measures were enacted to combat the spread of the coronavirus," it added.
The novel coronavirus was first detected in Wuhan, China in December. There are currently nearly 725,000 cases worldwide and over 34,000 reported deaths with more than 152,000 recoveries, according to U.S.-based Johns Hopkins University.
Despite the severity of the virus, most people experience mild symptoms and recover. -
