Measures to Save the Economy


The Covid-19 pandemic has caused a severe blow to the global economy. Governments of all the countries of the world are working day and night towards its control and solution. India was trying to recover from the economic downturn of the previous year, when Covid-19 struck and put an end to its industrial and commercial momentum.
