No Work in Europe Thanks to Lockdowns

The coronavirus has dominated all of our lives in recent months. Radical paths were taken by politicians in the form of lockdowns to contain the pandemic. But we should recognize that even if the coronavirus is a (major) challenge for us, we always have to keep a holistic view of world events. Just as there are epidemiological factors to consider in this crisis, there are also economic, social, cultural, political and other health factors at play. It is precisely these other factors that are so often forgotten in the panicky reporting, in the constant, manic tracking of the current infection numbers, that we want to take a look at in our series “The Costs of Coronavirus Lockdowns” in the coming weeks.

As we have seen in previous entries of our The Costs of Lockdowns series, lockdowns tend to particularly hurt those who are already in a precarious situation, such as small businesses, children, drug addicts, the poor that are close to starvation. Another group of people that has seen unfortunate consequences from the prevailing Corona politics have been women, who have been much more hurt economically by the drastic measures taken to curb the pandemic than men.
