Hunger Could Kill More Than COVID-19, Oxfam Warns

More people could die from hunger as a result of the coronavirus pandemic than from the disease itself, an international charity warns.

Oxfam says the crisis has disrupted harvests, food supplies and remittances in the poorest countries.

It says middle-income countries such as South Africa, India and Brazil, have also been badly hit, with many people losing their jobs during lockdowns.

According to official figures, there have so far been more than 500,000 virus related deaths around the world. About 12 million people have been infected.

The charity has tweeted a link to its report:
