A systematic Input-Output methodology is used to set out the socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the State of Kuwait. The project assesses the direct, indirect and induced economic repercussions of the activity that is not undertaken by businesses during the outbreak of the pandemic. As a key metric to quantify the scale of the economic impacts, the gross domestic product is evaluated in this study to represent the negative impacts resulting from the pandemic on the economy.
