#CovidCrimeWatch is a new initiative by the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organised Crime that explores the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on illicit economies across the globe. Every week it will publish a selection of stories from across the world that examine the relationship between the global health crisis and organized crime. From a slowing down of the drugs trade, to an increase in counterfeit goods, the spread of the virus will have dramatic consequences for the world of organized crime. Be sure to check out the report "Crime and Contagion: The Impact of a Pandemic on Organized Crime."
