Confronting the pandemic and crisis cost the country $6 billion

Confronting the pandemic by the new coronavirus and the imposed health measures and the crisis had a fiscal, monetary and financial cost until July of some six trillion dollars, equivalent to 15% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). With the latest measures, such as the Employment Plan, this effort will increase further. This cost includes social bonds, subsidization of essential services, deferment of credits, tax relief, injection of resources from the Central Bank of Bolivia (BCB) and others.
