With the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak in early January 2020, the situation worsened.

The fall in growth was sharp in industrial sector which fell to 0.9% y-o-y from 4.9%; moderation in services sector (growing at 5.5% compared to 7.7% in the previous year), which was offset by an uptick in the growth of agriculture sector (growing at 4% against 2.4% in the previous year) due to healthy precipitation. 1
