Coronavirus can “drive” into poverty half a billion people, UN report




The UN believes that the financial crisis that triggered the coronavirus can have worse consequences for humanity than the pandemic itself. Half a billion people will be below the poverty line.





Experts at King's College London and Australian National University drafted a report for the UN that said global poverty would increase for the first time in 30 years. It is reported by the BBC.

Experts predict that from the economic crisis, the number of poor can grow by 400-600 million people. This jeopardizes the UN's goal of eradicating poverty by 2030.

If a pandemic grows and provokes an economic crisis, the countries of East Asia, the Pacific, and Africa will become especially vulnerable.
