Oxfam has warned that, by the end of the year, "12,000 people per day could die from hunger linked to Covid-19 - potentially more than will die from the disease itself".

The charity says a number of factors will cause an increase in hunger, including mass unemployment, food producers dealing with lockdowns, and difficulties distributing aid.

Their report identifies 10 "hunger hotspots": Yemen, DR Congo, Afghanistan, Venezuela, West African Sahel, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Syria, Sudan, and Haiti.

The report also identifies three emerging hunger hotspots (all with lots of Covid19 cases): Brazil, India, and South Africa.
