This paper first introduces a short discussion of general trends affecting emerging economies, which have emerged during the Covid-19 crisis. It discusses how seven major emerging economies, including China, India, Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia, Turkey, and Argentina, have dealt with the Covid-19 crisis so far. It focuses on both public health policies to restrict the spread of the virus and reduce death ratios, and economic policies to mitigate economic consequences and keep businesses afloat. The discussion includes reflections on how growth trajectories of specific economies have been altered by the pandemic and what the global economic hierarchy might look like in the post-pandemic world.
