The global COVID pandemic has had a major effect on the economic conditions in Central America. Immigrants moving to America are coming for economic reasons, according to a recent report. The overwhelming majority of people across El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala reported a loss in income or employment during the crisis.

The shutdowns have triggered a spillover effect into industries and economics, making it difficult to have a decent livelihood in Central America.
