COVID-19 economic scenarios and weekly data published

Issue date:

This morning the Treasury published seven different scenarios* on the possible economic impacts of COVID-19.

We have also started weekly publication of an expanded Weekly Economic Update, which will be accompanied by a new COVID-19 Economic Dashboard each Friday.

You'll find all our COVID-19 related economic commentary and data in a new section on our website:

You can also find links to today's published commentary and the Secretary's media statement below.

* These indicative scenarios, based on assumptions and estimates, are subject to considerable uncertainty and are not official Treasury forecasts or the Treasury’s view of what will happen. They are intended to provide insight into some of the possibilities that the Government and officials will consider as they develop responses to COVID-19 and plan for a solid economic recovery.
