The United Nations World Food Program warns that the coronavirus pandemic could cause food shortages for hundreds of millions of people across the globe. 

The WFP said Africa is the most vulnerable continent. It added that for many poor countries, the economic consequences of Covid-19 outbreak will be more devastating than the disease itself. The UN body said import-reliant countries will mostly bear the brunt of the pandemic. It said containment measures taken to control the deadly disease have made it challenging to move commodities from the world's breadbaskets to where they are consumed.
