Description (excerpt):

In the three months since it began, the global pandemic precipitated by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has sickened 1.7 million people and counting, displaced and jeopardized vulnerable populations worldwide, and shut down large parts of the global economy. The converging public health, human rights, and economic crises spurred by the pandemic are forcing governments to act worldwide, including by adopting some of the largest public investment measures the world has ever seen.
