>Global economy contracts sharply
IMF称全球经济将萎缩3%

The global economy is on track to contract "sharply" by 3% in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, much worse than during the 2008-09 financial crisis, according to a World Economic Outlook report released by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Tuesday.
国际货币基金组织(IMF)14日发布的《世界经济展望报告》称,由于新冠肺炎全球大流行,预计今年全球经济将萎缩3%,衰退程度远超2008-09年金融危机期间的经济下滑。

"The world has changed dramatically in the three months since our last update of World Economic Outlook in January," IMF Chief Economist Gita Gopinath said at a virtual press conference, noting that the latest projection is 6.3 percentage points lower than the previous estimation.
IMF首席经济学家吉塔·戈皮纳特在视频新闻发布会上表示,自1月IMF发布上一版《世界经济展望报告》以来,三个月内全球形势急剧变化,最新的世界经济增速预测较1月下调6.3个百分点。

Calling it the "deepest recession" since the Great Depression of the 1930s, Gopinath said the cumulative global output loss across 2020 and 2021 is expected to reach about $9 trillion, greater than the economies of Japan and Germany combined.
戈皮纳特称,这是自上世纪30年代大萧条以来最糟糕的经济衰退,2020年和2021年全球可能会累计损失约9万亿美元的产出,这一数字超过了德国和日本的经济总量的总和。

>Trump halts funding to WHO
美国停缴世卫组织会费

US President Donald Trump announced Tuesday a suspension of US funding to the World Health Organization (WHO).
美国总统特朗普14日宣布,美国暂停向世卫组织提供资金。

Trump said at a news conference in the White House Rose Garden that his administration is withholding the US contribution of $400 million to WHO and will conduct a review of the global organization's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
特朗普在白宫玫瑰园的记者会上表示,美政府将暂停向世卫组织缴纳4亿美元的会费,并将评估这个全球性组织对新冠肺炎大流行的应对措施。

"With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have deep concerns about whether America's generosity has been put to the best use possible," Trump told reporters, also claiming that "WHO failed to adequately obtain, vet, and share information in a timely and transparent fashion."
特朗普对记者说:"随着新冠肺炎疫情暴发,我们非常关心美国的慷慨是否物尽其用。"他还说,世卫组织未能以及时和透明的方式充分获取、核实并分享信息。

The announcement came as Trump is aggressively defending his own handling of the COVID-19 crisis after his administration has been increasingly scrutinized for downplaying the threat from the coronavirus early on and is being faulted for delays in testing.
近日,特朗普政府因在美国暴发新冠肺炎疫情早期淡化威胁而面临愈加强烈的究责声浪,其延误检测的做法也引发不满,特朗普正为自己应对新冠肺炎疫情的表现激烈辩护。
