  3. Abstract:
    This material aims at a brief analysis of the economic and social realities and perspectives in the extremely complex conditions of the health crisis caused by the pandemic generated by SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. After 2019 having been a complicated year, both politically and economically, with profound changes at the political, economic and geopolitical level, 2020 promises to be full of challenges from the economic, social and political perspective. The European and global economic relaunch was estimated at the end of 2019. The USA presidential elections of November 2020, with Donald Trump at the forefront, and Great Britain exit from the European Union entailed at great fears for a complex year. The 2019–20 pandemic of coronavirus, also known as the Wuhan coronavirus, began on December 12th, 2019 in the center of Wuhan, China, when a group of people with unknown pneumonia was reported (an event mainly related to stall owners working at the Huanan fish market, who also sold live exotic animals). Subsequently, Chinese scientists isolated a new coronavirus, called 2019-nCoV, which was found to be at least 70% similar in the SARS-CoV gene sequence2. Therefore, 2020 became a year marked by a unique global health crisis in the past one hundred years.
