Coronavirus updates - Latest updates 21 March 2020 - 

The global economy is affected badly as the coronavirus shuts down air travel and tourism, dampens trade, and forces changes to society. Besides health concern, there are so many people across the globe impacted economically such as street vendor, vegetable sellers, retailers, auto/taxi drivers whose livelihood depends on other people going out and shop.  

Most of the countries are taking stricter measures to avoid community transmission of COVID19 which should be welcomed by everyone. Social distancing is the most effective step we can take at this point of o time to limit the spread of this virus considering the fact that there is no vaccine available for COVIND19. Hence, it becomes everyone's responsibility to follow the government directions and stay at home. 

In many countries, government has announced benefits/relaxation for needy people to minimise the impact to their daily lives.
