The COVID-19 health emergency and the lockdown measures to respond to it are deeply affecting the economy and the banking sector. Access to capital markets is becoming more difficult, foreclosures and non-performing exposures are increasing. Banks have started to apply moratoria to family and small firms in difficulties and other measures to contain losses. The banking regulatory package is expected to provide banks with the necessary flexibility to continue supporting the economy. Is this sufficient? Does it entail risks for financial stability? What needs to be done to sustain the recovery? When return to (a new) normal can be envisaged?
