World at risk of “biblical” famine due to pandemic?

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) warns that the world is on the brink of global famine of “biblical proportions” due to the novel coronavirus. RISS expert Vyacheslav Kholodkov underscores that the global hunger may adversely affect only the least developed countries. “First of all, we are talking about the Central African states. The fact is that the economic growth of all countries in the world, including developed ones, have declined drastically. Each state is now thinking about how to provide enough food to feed only its population,” he said.
