Chile to create $2bn fund to help informal workers hurt by virus

Chile's president said the 'emergency measures' would benefit 2.6 million informal workers.

Chilean President Sebastian Pinera on Wednesday announced a fresh two-billion-dollar fund to help support the country's informal workers as the coronavirus outbreak continues to batter the South American nation's economy.

Chile's government had previously announced a nearly $12bn stimulus package, worth nearly 5 percent of all goods and services produced in the country, aimed at saving jobs and protecting small businesses.
