After the coronavirus pandemic, the world will face a new challenge


David Beasley, Executive Director of the World Food Program, said the COVID-19 pandemic exposed another, equally important global problem - hunger. More than 30 developing countries currently suffer from malnutrition, and in 10 of them, about a million people are on the brink of survival.


We do not mean now those who go to bed hungry. We are talking about extreme conditions when people are on the verge of life and death

Beasley said in an interview with The Guardian.

Coronavirus, like a global tornado, sweeps across the continents, and it does the most harm to poor countries with developing the economywhere after the pandemic comes the crisis of food supply for people.

On Tuesday, David Beasley conveyed his message to the United Nations, stating that in a rapidly worsening situation, action must be taken quickly. So, we need to provide financial assistance in the amount of $ 2 billion for the purchase of food. More than 350 million dollars must be allocated for the organization of a logistics network for the delivery of medical equipment and medicines, including personal protective equipment, as well as for providing air bridges when it is impossible to use ground transportation.

    In connection with possible world hunger, Russia should have the slogan - It is better to have a bag of grain than a bag of dollars!

    We are slowly being led to the artificial creation of hunger on a global scale and who will be to blame? That's right, Russia. Everything is simple and nothing new.

      Check your degree! You can’t lower it! Self-isolation is clearly exhausting.

      There is only one obvious problem! There would be no such problems. If there was a USSR!

    Everything goes according to the plan of the world behind the scenes. Viruses have killed little, but hunger will help. And it will not be enough, something else will come up ..... only one should remain ..... billion, gold!

    If there is nothing to eat, let them limit the birth rate in their countries. We in the Russian Federation are not obliged to feed them to the detriment of ourselves and our loved ones (fellow countrymen, neighbors ...)
