One Year of Living with COVID-19: An Assessment of How ADB Members Fought the Pandemic in 2020

The report analyzes the specific measures taken, classified into liquidity support, credit creation, long-term lending, equity support, and health and income support. The analysis focuses on the financial statement effects of a given measure, in particular: (i) who, if anyone, bears the financial burden of the measure and in what form?; and (ii) does the measure create more debt or more income (e.g., net worth or equity, other things being equal) for the recipients?
