UN to create global coronavirus fund, Norway foreign ministry says

 The United Nations will create a fund to support the treatment of coronavirus patients worldwide, Norway’s Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Soereide said in a statement on Monday. 

The ministry said the purpose of the fund is to assist developing countries with weak health systems in addressing the crisis as well as to tackle the long-term consequences. A formal announcement could be made later this week, it said.

Almost 340,000 people have been infected by the novel coronavirus across the world and more than 14,500 have died, with deaths in Italy surpassing the toll in China, where the outbreak began, according to a Reuters tally.
