NEW DELHI – India’s economy is on a sharp decline with its gross domestic product (GDP) shrinking by at least 7.7%, lowest since 1952.

新德里报道:印度经济急剧下滑,国内生产总值(GDP)下降了至少7.7%,是1952年以来的最低水平。


The Indian Ministry of Statistics admitted that the “estimates may undergo sharp revisions due to disruptions caused by steps to contain the pandemic.” data collection was suspended coinciding with a nationwide lockdown.

印度统计局承认:"由于控制大流行措施造成中断,这一预测数字可能会大幅修正。”在全国封锁期间,他们暂停了数据收集。

Despite one of the strictest coronavirus lockdowns, India is now home to the world’s second-highest virus infections — which at more than 10.4 million, has kept the government from fully reopening the economy. The contraction in the nation’s GDP will also be the first since 1980, when the economy shrank 5.2%, and is set to be the worst slump in South Asia.

尽管印度是冠状病毒封锁最严格的国家之一,但目前印度的病毒感染人数是世界第二高的——超过1040万,这使得印度政府无法完全重新开放经济。该国GDP也将出现1980年以来的首次收缩——当时该国经济萎缩5.2%——并将成为南亚最严重的一次衰退。
