Adverse economic or social conditions have not historically tended to affect the general application and enforcement of antitrust rules. 

This remains the overall position in the circumstances of Covid-19, with many antitrust authorities expressly stating that they will continue to actively monitor business behaviour and take strict action against infringements.

Nevertheless, some authorities have announced that, in certain limited scenarios, they will apply exemptions from, or relaxations of, the rules.

See our overview for an indication of the different approaches being taken by authorities around the world.
