''Coronavirus-Lockdowns, Secondary Effects and Sustainable Exit-Strategies for Sub-Saharan Africa''
( 2020, Vol. 40 No.3 )
Pandemics and the reactions to pandemics increase the general problem of scarcity. Scarcity induced trade-offs are particularly relevant for countries in Sub-Saharan Africa as (1) the region suffers more than other regions from diseases whose death toll may increase substantially due to lockdowns, (2) economic effects of lockdowns affect the region more negatively because citizens in Sub-Saharan Africa have limited economic resources compared to more developed economies, and (3) weak institutions may increase the adverse societal impacts of the pandemic.
Keywords: Pandemics, General health, Economic effects, Institutions; Sustainability
