UNITED NATIONS (Xinhua) – UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned on Monday that many more people could slip into hunger this year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He sounded the alarm in a video message on the launch of “The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2020” report, which says almost 690 million people went hungry in 2019, up by 10 million from 2018, and by nearly 60 million in five years.

“This year's State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World report sends a sobering message. In much of the world, hunger remains deeply entrenched and is rising,” said Guterres in the video message.
