Euro zone economy may rebound strongly if vaccination speeds up, ECB’s de Guindos says

EU finance and economy ministers hold informal meeting in Berlin

FRANKFURT (Reuters) – The euro zone economy could be in for a strong rebound in the second half of the year if a large proportion of the population is vaccinated against COVID-19 in the summer, European Central Bank vice-president Luis de Guindos said on Thursday.

“If a high percentage of the population is vaccinated and immunized in the summer, this will have a very positive impact and lead to a second half of the year in which there could be a very strong rebound in activity,” de Guindos told an online event.
