A virtual meeting of the United Nations is being held today to discuss financial support for emerging economies hit hard by COVID-19.

Over a dozen world leaders will participate in the meeting to review efforts for possible debt relief being provided to poor countries in the face of coronavirus pandemic.

UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed while briefing the reporters in Geneva said many developing countries lack sufficient funds to fight the pandemic and more efforts are needed.
