World Bank: Up to 115 million people extremely poor because of Corona | message


WASHINGTON (dpa-AFX) – Triggered by the corona pandemic, the number of people living in extreme poverty worldwide is increasing by up to 115 million people, according to World Bank expectations. The proportion of extremely poor people is increasing this year for the first time in more than 20 years, it said in a statement on Wednesday. According to this, 150 million people could have to live on less than 1.90 dollars (around 1.60 euros) per day by 2021. 9.1 to 9.4 percent of the world population is expected to be extremely poor; Corona affects 1.4 percent more than originally expected.

The German Development Minister Gerd Müller said: “This year up to 115 million people will fall into extreme poverty. That will destroy much of the progress made in the last three decades.” The CSU politician demanded: “Corona is now leading to an increase in poverty and hunger in the world for the first time in years. Now we have to stick to the goal of a world without hunger and poverty.” / Max / DP / he
