A Lasting Impact
From the Series COVID-19
In early 2020, the United States lost about 25 billion dollars a day during the economic shutdown caused by COVID-19. Millions of people lost their jobs as thousands of businesses shut down, either temporarily or permanently. How are governments helping people—and businesses—stay afloat? Will there be permanent changes even after the virus is gone? During this “Big Pause,” pollution levels have dropped in many areas of the world—but will that last? Will anything positive come out of this crisis? Learn more about the impacts of the coronavirus, as we look toward a future of hope and healing that may be very different than what we’ve known in the past.
