In Italy, the economy is expected to shrink this year by 9.5%, and the rebound forecast for 2021 is to be 6.5%. In Spain, GDP is expected to fall by 9.4% this year and increase by 7% in 2021. In Greece the GDP is expected to decline by 9.7% this year, and next year rebound by 7.9%. 

Meanwhile, the EC forecasts that in 2020 Poland's GDP will shrink by 4.3 percent - this would be the best forecast among EU countries.
