The coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has brought about unprecedented challenges of human suffering, uncertainty and major economic disruption on a global scale. This can create environments that are ripe for corruption and bribery. For this reason, state and private sector responses to this crisis should include mechanisms for preventing, detecting and prosecuting corruption and bribery. Some corruption risks are immediate due to the actions taken to mitigate the health and economic crisis. Other risks will emerge in the medium to long term as the consequences and impact of COVID-19 emergency measures take greater effect. Under these circumstances, the progressive decline of citizen trust in public institutions and business will become even more evident. Identifying and addressing corruption risks will thus be crucial to protect trust in public institutions and business, and to galvanise public confidence in the governments’ ability to mobilise an effective crisis response.
