  1. How my preferred institution and the WBG as a whole should support my clients to contain the impact of covid 19

The pandemic is not ending soon, and there is a need to drive for herd immunity. There is a need to make the vaccines available to everyone at scale. The WBG can support its partners by improving the availability of the vaccine to their less privileged partners. The pandemic has pushed many countries into recession. Some of these countries were already having a problem providing health care and were experiencing debt pressure. Suspension of these debts by the WBG allows developing countries to refocus their financial resources on the immediate COVID 19 response. The WBG and IFC can assist their partners by providing them with information on creating more sustainable economies that are more resilient in times of crisis. The IFC can also offer financial assistance to support the affected economies, thereby allowing these countries to provide monetary relief to affected businesses and reduce taxes paid by citizens. It is also essential that the World Bank builds hospitals to strengthen health systems in countries that are still in the deep of the pandemic.
