Латинская Америка: коронавирус и новый политический ландшафт

Латинская Америка. 2020. № 10. С. 39-53.

Abstract. The article focuses on the first steps taken by the governments of the Latin
American countries in their attempt to check and fight down the spread of the new coronavirus
infection (COVID-19). A new alignment of political forces is considered in the
light of the next cycle of the presidential election. Latin America has sunk into that crisis
having a number of frankly weak points. These points might turn out to be a kind of
“levers” starting the undermining of the political, economic and social spheres in the
region. The current situation is getting complicated by the unsteady and shattered political
landscape that has come to being in the region in the last years. The article exposes a
forecast of the possible changes that could take place in the economic map of the region
as the outcome of the actual global crisis.
