At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, ASEAN region responded relatively well to the crisis compared to other parts of the world, with travel restrictions and country-wide lockdowns keeping the spread at bay.
As of April 2021 the ADB forecast 4.4% GDP growth for Southeast Asia in 2021 which would take the region back to pre-COVID-19 levels.
However, in recent months many countries are facing a second and stronger onslaught of the pandemic, and are being forced to return to tighter controls and try to roll out the vaccine as soon as possible to get the situation under control.
