SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve, which has lowered rates to zero, bought trillions of dollars of U.S. government debt and rolled out a range of lending programs to battle the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, still has tools to boost the economy, San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank President Mary Daly said Thursday.

In an interview with Bloomberg TV, Daly also said that people she speaks with do not expect a “V”-shaped recovery.
