G20 countries pledge over $21 billion to fund fight Covid-19 pandemic

Member countries of the Group of 20 on Friday pledged more than $21 billion to fight the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. The announcement comes after the G20 countries injected more than $5 trillion into the global economy in late March to fight the virus and its economic impact. The G20 members had also asked the International Monetary Fund and World Bank to support the countries that are in need of instruments required in the fight of COVID-19.
