Articles

The report on world food sufficiency and nutrition jointly compiled by the UN FAO, UNICEF, WHO, IFAD and WFP on 12 July mentioned that as food deficiency rose up due to conflicts, climate change, COVID-19 pandemic and decline of the economy across the world, the one-tenth of the world population faced food deficiency in 2020.
The report continuously said that a total of 2.4 billion of the global population did not have nutritious foods in 2020, increasing 320 million of the population more than the previous year.
The Worldometer stated that variant COVID-19 rises up infection rate in many countries. Up to the end of July, some 190 million of the global population have been infected by the pandemic while over four million of the people have lost their lives in the outbreak of disease.
The situation of the disease under control is impossible till today. While the outbreak of disease is still in momentum, food deficiency and high prices of commodities become a heavy burden on the people. That is why authorities need to ease the tension from the people who face challenges in the period of COVID-19.

Hence, the authorities need to adopt the correct decisions so as to overcome the challenges of the COVID-19 as well as the food deficiency for the people.

In the daily life of the people, the food supply is of importance. The food deficiency may cause health weakness, shortening of life expectancy, declining of productivity and lesser capability of learning among the youths.
At present, the local authorities restricted the workplaces as long holidays. In fact, less production may cause shortages of foodstuff. As such, the authorities need to review the work process so as to ease the restrictions of workplaces for the resumption of productions to meet the demand of the people.
On the other hand, utmost efforts must be made for the prevention, control and treatment of the COVID-19. But emphasis must be placed on the production of foods for the people. If not, shortage of food will be deficiency among the people and they may not endure the attacks of the pandemic in the long run. It is because the pandemic is expected to still be alive across the world in the coming years.
Hence, the authorities need to adopt the correct decisions so as to overcome the challenges of the COVID-19 as well as the food deficiency for the people.
