La economía estadounidense se contrajo en el primer trimestre a su ritmo más acentuado desde la Gran Recesión, dado que las severas medidas para frenar el avance del coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 prácticamente paralizaron al país, dando fin a la expansión más prolongada en su historia.

El Departamento de Comercio dijo este miércoles que el Producto Interno Bruto (PIB) de Estados Unidos bajó a una tasa anualizada de 4.8% en el período enero-marzo tras crecer un 2.1% en los últimos tres meses del 2019.

Analistas consultados por Reuters habían previsto una contracción de 4.0%, con estimaciones de hasta -15 por ciento.
