Pound Higher As PM Johnson To Detail Reopening Plans

The pound appreciated against its major counterparts in European deals on Monday, as U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to outline plans to reopen the economy and the resumption of international travel later in the day. The PM is expected to set out further details on resuming foreign travel from this summer.

The authorities are considering to use a special traffic light system which would categorize possible destinations into green, yellow and red.

The government is mulling to allot the coronavirus passports to U.K. residents to access public events. All retail, outdoor hospitality and hairdressers will be reopened on April 12 under the current plan unveiled in May. European markets are closed on account of Easter Monday.

The pound rose to 0.8472 against the euro, its biggest since February 2020. Next key resistance for the pound is seen around the 0.82 region. The pound firmed to 1.3074 against the franc, a level unseen since December 2019. If the pound rises further, it may find resistance around the 1.33 level.

The pound jumped to a 2-week high of 1.3869 against the greenback, after falling to 1.3813 at 2:00 am ET. The pound may test resistance around the 1.41 level. The pound approached 153.37 against the yen, registering a 3-year high. The pound is poised to find resistance around the 156.00 level. Looking ahead, U.S. ISM services PMI for March and factory orders for February are scheduled for release in the New York session.

Covid-19 is a particularly vicious disease. While a significant number of people remain asymptomatic, other patients could go on to develop what researchers are calling post-Covid-19 syndrome. Americans suffering from the condition are running into financial problems due to the inconsistent nature of the U.S. health-care system.

CNBC spoke with three people about their experience battling Covid and paying for their treatment. Watch the video above to learn how coronavirus treatment costs add up long after patients leave the hospital.

'Seluruh dunia berdepan kekangan kewangan'​


KOTA BHARU: Pandemik COVID-19 menyebabkan seluruh dunia berdepan kekangan kewangan dan defisit besar sehingga mencecah 15 peratus ketika ini.

Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri (Ekonomi), Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed, berkata masalah itu turut ditanggung negara pengeluar minyak disebabkan krisis ekonomi dan kesihatan.

Keadaan itu, katanya, menyebabkan Malaysia terpaksa berhutang berikutan hasil negara berkurangan.

"Itu realitinya hari ini dan perkara ini bukan boleh disorok. Ini cabaran ekonomi terbesar dengan apa yang melanda Malaysia dan negara lain.

"Semua negara menghadapi defisit sehingga 15 peratus dan Malaysia mencatatkan defisit daripada Keluaran Dalam Negara Kasar (KDNK) enam peratus.


"Kita berhutang disebabkan hasil jatuh namun pada masa sama, keperluan kita meningkat. Kita perlu berbelanja lebih kerana keutamaan kerajaan adalah menjaga keperluan rakyat," katanya.


Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang media selepas mengadakan lawatan kerja ke Jabatan Perangkaan Malaysia (DOSM) Kelantan berhubung Sesi Libat Urus Banci Penduduk dan Perumahan Malaysia 2020: Status Pembancian Peringkat Negeri Kelantan di Wisma Persekutuan di sini, hari ini.


Beliau berkata demikian ketika diminta mengulas kenyataan Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, yang mengakui kerajaan tidak mempunyai banyak wang kesan perbelanjaan yang perlu disalurkan berkaitan COVID-19.


Mustapa berkata, ekonomi dijangka pulih antara enam hingga 7.5 peratus tahun ini.


Dalam apa juga keadaan, katanya, kerajaan tetap bekerja keras untuk memulihkan ekonomi negara dengan merangka pelbagai strategi terutama mewujudkan peluang pekerjaan dan memperkasa perusahaan mikro.


Mengulas mengenai lawatan kerja berkenaan, Mustapa berkata, seramai 15 juta orang atau 46 peratus daripada 32.7 juta anggaran penduduk pada 2020 sudah selesai dibanci.


Katanya, empat negeri yang mencatat kadar respon melebihi 60 peratus ialah Putrajaya (100 peratus), Johor (65.4), Kelantan (60.9) dan Perak sebanyak 60.8 peratus.


"Lima kaedah bancian digunakan termasuk talian, bersemuka menggunakan pen dan kertas, bersemuka menggunakan telefon bimbit dan meninggalkan borang bancian.


"Bancian di penempatan Orang Asli dan kawasan terpencil di pedalaman Sabah serta Sarawak dilaksanakan secara bersemuka.


"Kita jangkakan proses bancian dapat disiapkan pada Jun tahun ini sebelum maklumat lengkap dijangka diperoleh pada Ogos," katanya.

The global economic devastation that has accompanied COVID-19 has been especially severe in Argentina. Its already struggling economy shrank by nearly 10 percent in 2020, the third straight year of recession. Al Jazeera's Teresa Bo travelled to Greater Buenos Aires to find out how people are coping with the twin health and economic crises.

COVID-19: Separuh penduduk dunia terjejas pendapatan​

NAIROBI: Kajian menunjukkan satu daripada dua orang di seluruh dunia berdepan pengurangan pendapatan akibat COVID-19, dengan penduduk di negara berpendapatan rendah paling teruk terkesan apabila kehilangan pekerjaan atau tempoh bekerja dikurangkan.

Itu adalah hasil kajian badan kaji selidik berpusat di Amerika Syarikat (AS), Gallup, yang menjalankan kajian membabitkan 300,000 responden di 117 negara.

Kajian itu mendapati separuh daripada mereka yang bekerja mengalami pengurangan gaji selepas COVID-19 mencetuskan gangguan dalam ekonomi, bersama dengan 1.6 bilion orang dewasa di seluruh dunia.

"Di seluruh dunia, julat peratusan ini adalah daripada yang tertinggi iaitu 76 peratus di Thailand kepada yang paling rendah iaitu 10 peratus di Switzerland," kata badan kaji selidik itu dalam satu kenyataan.

Di Bolivia, Myanmar, Kenya, Uganda, Indonesia, Honduras dan Ecuador, lebih 70 peratus responden mengakui mendapat gaji lebih rendah berbanding sebelum krisis kesihatan global berkenaan.


Di Amerika Syarikat (AS), jumlah itu berkurangan kepada 34 peratus. Krisis COVID-19 memberi kesan kepada golongan pekerja seluruh dunia, khususnya wanita, yang mewakili sejumlah besar dalam sektor berpendapatan rendah seperti peruncitan, pelancongan dan perkhidmatan makanan.


Pada Khamis, badan kebajikan antarabangsa, Oxfam memaklumkan kajian pihaknya mendapati pandemik itu menyebabkan golongan wanita di seluruh dunia kehilangan pendapatan berjumlah AS$800 bilion (RM3.2 trilion).


Gallup juga mendapati lebih separuh daripada responden terpaksa berhenti kerja buat sementara waktu, yang bersamaan kira-kira 1.7 bilion orang dewasa di seluruh dunia.


Di 57 negara termasuk India, Zimbabwe, Filipina, Kenya, Bangladesh dan El Salvador, lebih 65 peratus responden terpaksa berhenti kerja selepas penularan wabak itu.


Kira-kira satu daripada 10 yang memiliki pekerjaan di Austria, Switzerland dan Jerman pula memaklumkan terpaksa berhenti kerja buat sementara waktu.


Di AS, angka itu bertambah kepada 39 peratus. Kaji selidik itu juga menunjukkan satu daripada tiga responden kehilangan pekerjaan atau perniagaan akibat pandemik, yang bersamaan lebih satu bilion penduduk seluruh dunia.


Angka itu berbeza antara negara berpendapatan rendah seperti Filipina, Kenya dan Zimbabwe yang mencatat 60 peratus responden hilang pekerjaan atau perniagaan, berbanding tiga peratus di Switzerland dan 13 peratus di AS. - AGENSI

The world will bounce back sharply from #coronavirus, but rebuilding the #economy and #confidence will take time. That's the view of our guest Robin Bew, Managing Director of the Economist Intelligence Unit. He says that in light of the catastrophic situation in India, as long as the threat of new outbreaks remains – for example in Africa – economic uncertainty will continue. He also underlines that the economic crisis caused by the pandemic is "massively larger" than the one sparked by the financial crisis back in 2008.
