225 global leaders, including Indian-origin Nobel laureate Amartya Sen and Kailash Satyarthi and economist Kaushik Basu, tried to find a mantra to deal with the damage to global health and economy from the coronavirus. They called for an urgent meeting of the G-20 countries and approved the implementation of a $ 2.5 trillion recovery plan to deal with the effects of the epidemic.
These issues have been raised in a letter signed by 225 former and current world leaders. The G-20 countries called an emergency meeting on 26 March amid the possibility of a severe economic slowdown and agreed to raise $ 50 trillion to deal with the effects of the epidemic. Let us tell you that while more than 3.75 lakh people have lost their lives globally due to the epidemic, it has also given a shock to the global economy, which has left millions unemployed.
Among those who signed the letter were Sen, Satyarthi, and Basu besides former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Tony Blair, former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, former US General Assembly President Maria Fernanda Espinosa, former Sri Lankan President Chandrika Kumaratunga, etc. are.
