France Faces Worst Recession Since 1945 Due to COVID-19 - Finance Minister

French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Monday that the COVID-19 pandemic would cause an economic recession in the country in 2020, one worse than what France experienced at the end of World War II.

"The worst numbers of growth France has shown after [the crisis of] 1945 was in 2009 after the big financial crisis of 2008: -2.2%. We will likely be far below -2,2% this year," Le Maire said, while addressing the economic affairs commission of the French Senate on Monday.
