(FILES) In this file photo taken on January 23, 2020 the headquarters of the European Central Bank (ECB) is pictured prior to a news conference following the meeting of the governing council of the ECB in Frankfurt am Main, western Germany. Christine Lagarde is expected to stress the European Central Bank's commitment to cheap money on April 22, 2021, as Europe's biggest economies battle a surge in coronavirus infections that could slow the eurozone recovery. After calming jittery markets last month by promising to "significantly" step up the pace of its pandemic emergency bond purchases, analysts say the ECB's 25-member governing council is under no pressure to take fresh action. Instead, president Lagarde is likely to use her 2:30 pm (1230 GMT) press conference to reiterate the message that there will be no premature end to "favourable financing conditions" until the crisis is deemed over and the rebound is firmly on track. / AFP / Daniel ROLAND
