On Thursday, March 26, the G20 summit is taking place. For the first time - in an online format. And naturally, the main topic of the meeting is the coronavirus COVID-19.

G20 leaders have pledged to fund the development of coronavirus vaccines, as well as to make efforts to spread safe systems for diagnosis and treatment for COVID-19. This is stated in the declaration adopted at the end of the virtual summit, Interfax reports.

“We will try to ensure that all people have easy access to these drugs,” the statement said.

The G20 leaders admitted that the coronavirus pandemic has hit hard on the economy and the lives of ordinary citizens in general. The economy is slowly recovering, but the pace remains uneven.

The spread of the virus is still a threat. The G20 called on development banks to step up efforts to support the economy.

In addition, during the virtual meeting of the Big Twenty, it was decided to extend the debt freeze of poor countries for another six months so that they could channel resources to fight the coronavirus.
