The economic crisis was intimately linked to the health crisis. It necessitated containment measures that caused a significant economic cost. The de-confinement initiated by The Senegal was designed to obtain a quick economic recovery but was also accompanied by a number of new barriers to the activity (physical distanciation internet activities etc…). Unfortunately, a second wave appeared. Once again, the question of a new lockdown has been asked. There is a trade off between lock down or not in terms of economic and sanitary impacts. On this point, some countries have chosen to not lock down their economy. Using a multi-agent model elaborated as an epidemiological model, we will evaluate the effect of government policies to counter the pandemic. Then we use a CGE model to evaluate the economic impacts of those policies. Those two models are combined as a top down approach. Finally, we discuss on the opportunity of different scenarios when a pandemy appaears in the economy.
