"We have never been in a problem this big with a type of enemy like this one," OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría said in an interview from Paris on “Bloomberg Markets: European Open”, while calling for a co-ordinated response to the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, writes the OECD.

The coronavirus presents the global economy with its greatest danger since the financial crisis, according to the OECD’s latest Interim Economic Outlook. The OECD calls on governments to act immediately to limit the spread of the coronavirus, protect people and businesses from its effects and shore up demand in the economy.

The OECD advises countries on how to meet future demand for health professionals and how to manage the supply of health workers. This report describes recent trends in the international migration of doctors and nurses in OECD countries.

Telehealth is not a substitute for seeing real doctors, but can play a valuable role in patient-centred healthcare and in closing the rural-urban divide as well. But it will require investment and determined policies.

International merchandise trade in the G20 countries continued downwards in Q4 2019, as exports and imports slid to their lowest levels in two years. Disruption to Asian supply chains in particular, related to Covid-19 (coronavirus) suggests that this trend could continue in Q1 2020. Ageing and long-term care, access and health expenditure, pharmaceuticals and new technologies, quality of care, anti-microbial resistance: these are just some of the key health care issues addressed at the OECD as we help make better policies for better lives.
