It's not a secret that GDP represents an important indicator that demonstrates the economic activity of a country. Thus, the fall of 5% announced during the previous release indicated the weakening US economy. The reasons behind that plunge were, of course, connected with Covid-19, shutdowns, and uncertain economic outlook. Since then, the situation has got better with restoring business activity and employment. However, the outlook is still uncertain and the coronavirus cases in the US keep rising. Will we see the advance GDP growth rate for the previous quarter going down or stabilizing?
