Netflix announces $100 million coronavirus relief fund,to help workers in the creative community

Streaming giant Netflix has come up with a $100 million relief fund that will be used to support members of the entertainment and creative community, who are struggling for employment in the wake of all television and film productions shut down due to the impact of the COVD-19.

Beyond helping workers on Netflix’s own productions, the company also wants to support the broader film and television industry, stated Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

With the entertainment industry at a standstill across countries, jobs are hard to come by, especially for daily-wage earners. The Producers Guild of India had announced earlier in the week that it would be setting up a relief fund for daily-wage earners most affected by the shutdown of film, television and over-the-top productions owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
