The outbreak of corona virus is increasing in the world. Now, the International Labour Organization (ILO) has warned that it could lead to an economic crisis around the world and that nearly 25 million people could lose the jobs if governments do not take any effective steps.
What the ILO said:
“The corona virus COVID-19 epidemic could trigger a global economic crisis and if governments do not take swift steps to protect workers from its impact, nearly 2.5 million people worldwide can go to jobs,” the ILO said on Wednesday.
These measures have to be taken:
However, the ILO also said, “If coordinated international policy measures were taken in the same way as it was during the recession of 2008—09, unemployment could be reduced.”
The International Labour Organization (ILO) has called for urgent, large-scale coordinated measures to protect workers at workplaces, accelerate the economy and stimulate jobs and incomes.
