The Covid-19 pandemic, which will throw the global economy into a deep recession this year before an economic rebound expected in 2021, is at the top of the agenda. G20 leaders are concerned that the pandemic might further deepen global divisions between the rich and the poor. To do that, the European Union urged G20 leaders to quickly put more money into a global project for vaccines, tests and therapeutics called Access to Covid-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator. Extending the temporary debt relief could encourage some additional countries to ask for forbearance, experts say, but private sector creditors must also agree to participate. Debt relief for Africa will be an important theme of the Italian presidency of the G20 in 2021.

Debt relief for Africa will be a main theme of the Italian presidency of the G20 in 2021. The change of U.S. leadership also raises hopes of a more concerted effort at G20 level to fight climate change. Under Trump, the United States pulled out of the Paris Agreement on fighting climate change, but the decision is likely to be reversed by President-elect Joe Biden. To help finance the fight again climate change the EU will push for the G20 to agree common global standards on what constitutes “green” investment.

BRUSSELS/BERLIN (Reuters) - The World Health Organization (WHO) should be quickly overhauled, get more powers to handle pandemics and expose its member states’ shortfalls in health emergencies, European Union officials said on Friday. REUTERS/Fabrizio Bensch/File PhotoThe comments were made at a video conference of EU health ministers that endorsed an EU document on the reform of the U.N. agency which outlines a series of sweeping changes needed to boost WHO’s powers and resources, as exclusively reported by Reuters in September. “It is extremely important we move ahead with this reform,” EU Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides told the same news conference. “Transparency on who complies with the rules is fundamental,” Kyriakides told ministers at the video conference, according to her speaking notes. The draft document also says WHO countries should allow independent epidemiological assessments on-site in high risk zones during health crises.

Americans are experiencing three pandemics right now, according to wellness expert and best-selling author Deepak Chopra. The first is the Covid-19 pandemic and loss of life associated with the virus, he said. "The third pandemic is anxiety and stress and fear of death," said Chopra, founder of both The Chopra Foundation and Chopra Global. "If you have stress in you right now, anger, hostility, grief, which is happening, then you're going to compromise your immune system," said Chopra, who recently launched a new meditation app, Chopra Meditation & Well-Being. "Adrenaline and other hormones go up, cause inflammation, make it more likely that you'll have a cardiovascular disease or metabolic syndrome," he added.
