CBO-Interim Economic Projections for 2020 and 2021-continued

May 19, 2020--CBO estimates that real gross domestic product will contract by 11 percent in the second quarter of this year, which is equivalent to a decline of 38 percent at an annual rate, and that the number of people employed will be almost 26 million lower than the number in the fourth quarter of 2019.
The Sudden Drop in Economic Activity

The pandemic has disrupted the lives of millions of people. To mitigate the contagion, many households, businesses, and governments have taken measures collectively referred to as social distancing, which peaked in April 2020. The pandemic and social distancing have widely disrupted economic activity, causing a wave of job losses and ending the longest expansion since World War II.
