2021 Will Be Worse Than 2020, Warns Noble UN Head

New Delhi: The World Food Program’s head David Beasley, has warned that the “next year is going to be worse than 2020″. In an interview with Associated Press, Beasley said that the Nobel Peace Prize gave a spotlight to the UN agency and a megaphone to warn the world leaders about 2021.

He claimed that without billions of dollars “we are going to have famines of biblical proportions in 2021,” as quoted by India.com.

Beasley further said, “It was so timely because we’ve been fighting to get above the choir.” In last month’s award, Beasley targetted the news that were primarily dominated by the US presidential polls and the coronavirus pandemic, and the difficulty of getting global attention focused on “the travesty that we’re facing around the world.”

He also said about his warning to the UNSC in April about the hunger pandemic. He stated that the world was on the verge of a hunger pandemic that could lead to “multiple famines of biblical proportions’, but “we were able to avert it in 2020 … because the world leaders responded with money, stimulus packages, deferral of debt.”

Beasley also cautioned the countries of another wave of lockdowns and shutdowns due to the rise in the number of COVID-19 cases and the deteriorating condition of economies, especially in low- and middle-income countries.
