Food Insecurity in Africa spiked early in COVID-19 pandemic

In #EIn #Ethiopia and #Nigeria, two countries in which data were available from the early months of the pandemic, the rate of moderate food insecurity reported by households increased from about zero to between 30% and 70% by June 2020. In #BurkinaFaso and #Malawi , where data was available beyond 2020, researchers observed gradual declines in food insecurity.
