WELLINGTON (Reuters) – Governments around the world need to look at unified approaches to managing COVID-19, the Group Chief Executive of Malaysian budget airline AirAsia Group Bhd Tony Fernandes said at the APEC CEO Summit.

Fernandes said leaders in the Asia-Pacific region were being “over-sensitive” with COVID-19 and needed to be braver and more standardised in dealing with the pandemic.
