Oxford Economic report rates Bolivia’s vulnerability to a pandemic at 7.1 out of 10

A report by Oxford Economics shows that Bolivia is the country with the most significant social and economic vulnerability to the effects of the pandemic. It places Bolivia on a scale of 7.1 out of 10, followed by other emerging economies such as Nigeria (7.0) and Peru (6.8). The research supports its analysis on three central axes: the collapse of the health system, the government system and the shock of economic activity. Each shows three subgroups, where Bolivia shows weaknesses: The first is commodity dependence, followed by a fiscal deficit and a deficient health system.
