The US economy grew less than anticipated in the last quarter of 2020, with most economists attributing a resurgence of coronavirus cases as the mitigating factor.

US gross domestic product grew at an annualized rate of 4% over the last three months of 2020, according to data from the U.S. Commerce Department’s Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) released this week.

The downshifting of the GDP comes after a record 33%-plus annualized gain in the third quarter, which was attributed to the reopening of the economy in the summer after business lockdowns to combat the pandemic in the spring.
