Summary:

Rwanda is suffering from the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The economic impact was being felt even before the first confirmed case was reported on March 14. The authorities’ policy response to the pandemic has been timely, scaling up health care spending and putting in place measures to help contain and mitigate the spread of the disease. This is compounding the difficulties from disaster management outlays already underway to address the damage caused by the heavy rains in the beginning of the year. The pandemic is also dampening domestic revenue mobilization and putting significant pressures on foreign exchange reserves.
