Serhat TUNAR -TDO- International Monetary Fund (IMF) President Kristalina Georgieva made a statement to CNBC about the epidemic that has already taken place in world history.
Georgieva said the number of countries going through an economically difficult time due to the covid-19 outbreak is growing, with nearly half of the world's countries requesting assistance from the IMF. He added that it is not the fault of governments and that they supply funds quickly in case of demand.
In return for their economic assistance, Georgieva said, they are asking countries to pay only their doctors and nurses on time and to keep their health care systems in a constant good condition.
The IMF, which has forecast the global economy to grow by 3 percent in recent months, revised its forecast after the coronavirus crisis grew. IMF chief Georgieva also said that if the epidemic is brought under control, they expect the global economy to grow by around 6 per cent in 2021.
