This is the largest monthly decline of the economy on record, and this contraction happened during the peak of coronavirus lockdown in April. 

The economy of the United Kingdom is a highly developed social market and market-orientated economy. It is the sixth-largest national economy in the world measured by nominal gross domestic product, ninth-largest by purchasing power parity, and twenty second-largest by GDP per capita, comprising 3.3% of world GDP.  But this decline would make the UK economy world ranking drop significantly.
