India and Australia are among the countries calling for an urgent meeting of the Group of 20 nations to better co-ordinate the world’s response to the coronavirus. The next G20 leaders’ summit is not due to be held until November. Prime Minister Scott Morrison says that as well as needing to hold a meeting of G20 leaders soon, there needs to be another meeting of the G20 finance ministers given the subsequent economic deterioration since the last one was held less than a month ago. He said any meeting would need to be held by videoconference, given the current travel bans.
