OREANDA-NEWS. The global economy has entered a recession due to the epidemic of coronavirus. This was announced on April 3 by the Chairwoman and Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Kristalina Georgieva.

“It is way worse than the global financial crisis (Of 2008–2009. – Ed.),” she said. According to her, a decisive response to the crisis in the healthcare sector is required. Georgieva said that a powerful blow has been dealt to developing economies. She explained that they often have less resources for self-defense in the face of this double crisis: in the field of healthcare and the economy.
