In an incredible show of both solidarity and generosity, Netflix has established a coronavirus relief fund that will distribute $100 million to entertainment industry workers who have lost their jobs amid the industry-wide shutdown stemming from the coronavirus.

Trade reports have indicated that at least 120,000 people are expected to be affected by the current global pandemic, which has far-reaching consequences beyond Los Angeles. The crisis has begun to catch up with Hollywood talent agencies as well.
In Netflix’s case, the mega-streamer produces as much original programming as any company out there, so the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on its workforce, who will be the primary beneficiaries of the relief fund.
