Crime and the Coronavirus in Latin America - Update 2020

According to the Strifeblog Organization the COVID-19 pandemic not only represents a global public health crisis but has also created serious political and security challenges. In Latin America, legal and illicit economies alike have been hit hard by a massive slowdown in global production and consumption, leaving most organized crime groups unusually vulnerable and exposed. These conditions offer opportunities for governments to deal a considerable blow to these criminal networks that wield enormous amounts of power in their territories.

However, evidence from the region shows that criminal are rapidly adapting to the challenges of the pandemic and are in fact taking advantage of the overwhelmed state authorities to consolidate their power.

Lockdown measures have led to a general reduction in street crime and robbery as criminals become more conspicuous and their targets more scarce. El Salvador, the country with the highest homicide rate in the world, reported two days without murders immediately following the imposition of obligatory quarantine measures.

Lockdowns and border closures have also created new illicit business opportunities. The closing of borders on key migration routes has increased the demand for human smuggling services – and their profitability.

Elizabeth Gonzalez said on January 10, 2019 " What does 2019 have in store for Latin America’s economy? More uncertainty. A December report from the UN’s Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) warns that deteriorating financial conditions, global trade tensions such as the U.S.-China trade war, and a drop in crude oil prices will affect the economic prospects of emerging markets across the board. That said, Latin America’s GDP growth is expected to improve, from an estimated 1.2 percent in 2018 to 1.7 percent in 2019. But 2018 fell below ECLAC’s initial 2.2 percent projection for the region. The economies expected to perform the best this year are the Dominican Republic and Panama, with GDP growth at 5.7 and 5.6 percent, respectively. Venezuela will once again be the region’s worst performer, with a 10.0 percent GDP contraction. The other two countries that experienced a recession in 2018, Argentina and Nicaragua, will see drops in their GDP again of 1.8 percent and 2.0 percent, respectively, in 2019. "
