The International Monetary Fund (IMF) announced on Monday, March 9, that all employees will work from home on Friday to test systems in case the spreading coronavirus epidemic makes working remotely a necessity.

The World Bank, too, has been testing remote work procedures on a smaller scale, spokesman for the Bank said.

Last week, the IMF and World Bank announced that their Spring meetings in April would become a virtual event amid the spread of COVID-19 which has sickened 110, 564 people in 100 countries and killed 3,862.
