The international mobility of people and goods remains highly impacted by cross-border restrictions, which have had a devastating impact on international travel and economies across the globe. The economic consequences of these, and other decisions were wide ranging and deep.
The current health crisis persists, but there is a high probability of an endemic state for COVID-19 in the near future.

These measures could serve as the building blocks for a more resilient global health system aimed at responding more efficiently to future health emergencies.
