ECB tells banks to review business continuity plans over coronavirus

MADRID (Reuters) - The European Central Bank has asked banks to review their business continuity plans and what actions they can take to prepare and minimise the potential adverse effects of the coronavirus spread, a letter seen by Reuters shows.

In the letter, the ECB asked banks to establish adequate measures of infection control in the workplace and ensure that they are ready for large scale remote working of staff if needed.
