U.N. World Food Program (WFP) Executive Director David Beasley warned this week that the coronavirus pandemic, which originated in China, could have a devastating impact on world hunger and could push well over 100 million people to the brink of starvation. Beasley also warned that there was a “real danger” that more people could die from the economic fallout than from the actual virus.
“This sounds truly shocking, but let me give you the numbers: 821 million people go to bed hungry every night all over the world, chronically hungry, and as the new Global Report on Food Crisis published today shows, there are a further 135 million people facing crisis levels of hunger or worse,” Beasley said. “That means 135 million people on earth are marching towards the brink of starvation. But now the World Food Program analysis shows that, due to the Coronavirus, an additional 130 million people could be pushed to the brink of starvation by the end of 2020. That’s a total of 265 million people.”
Now…was this their goal — to get us to sacrifice the elderly and the ill for the economy.
