ECB's Lagarde: We are still in midst of crisis

President of the European Central Bank, Christine Lagarde described on Tuesday the current moment in time as "the other side of the [COVID-19] crisis," but went on to warn that the outbreak is not over yet, nor has the negative impact of the pandemic been mitigated.
