Abstract

In this paper, we evaluate the impact of Wuhan COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) on four strategic sectors - i.e. tourism, air transportation, international trade, and electricity consumption of the Chinese economy. To do so, we develop and apply a new model - the economic crisis from massive contagious infection diseases simulator (ECMCID-Simulator). The simulator deploys a macro-dynamic analysis under different possible scenarios to evaluate the impact of a massive contagious infection disease on the short-run economic performance of a country.

Keywords: economic simulation, contagious disease, China, trade, tourism, air transportation, electricity consumption

JEL Classification: I15, I18
