According to Eurostat, the GDP collapse that has affected both the Eurozone and the broader EU marks the largest recorded contraction of its kind since 1995.

Eurostat has recorded a 12.1% decline of Eurozone GDP and a 11.9% GDP slump across the EU in the second quarter of 2020, compared to Q1.

The European Union's GDP also saw a 14.4 percent year-on-year decrease in the second quarter of the year, which is the sharpest decline since 1995, Eurostat said in a press release.

According to the organisation, Spain has reported the sharpest slump (-18.5%), followed by Portugal (-14.1%) and France (-13.8%). Meanwhile, the lowest decline was recorded in Lithuania (-5.1%).

The record collapse comes in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic that forced the EU nations to essentially shut down their respective economies this spring by imposing lockdowns. Since May, the bloc has gradually started to re-emerge from these COVID-related restrictions. However, a recent uptick in new cases has forced several nations to reimpose some limitations amid fears of a second wave of the pandemic. - Sputnik -
