The World Bank has approved an increased US$14 billion package of fast-track financing to assist companies and countries in their efforts to prevent, detect and respond to the virus. In the US, President Trump has signed the largest-ever national financial stimulus package, worth US$2 trillion, while Europe's economic rescue packages have a combined worth of €1.7tn, showing the mammoth efforts made, as countries grapple with the coronavirus pandemic.
