If the governments of the countries fail to take the necessary measures, the difficult situation caused by the coronavirus will hinder the supply of food to the world. Such statements were made by representatives of the United Nations (UN), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) on April 1.
“Uncertainty about food availability could lead to restrictions on exports, which could lead to food shortages in global markets. . .
Until closing borders due to COVID-19, efforts should be made so that commodity flows can move freely so as not to create food shortages” – the joint statement said.
