Lockdowns Have Devastated the World’s Poorest: 2.4 million People in Zimbabwe’s Urban Areas Become Food Insecure, UNICEF says

Over two years, between 22 March 2020 and 8 February 2022, Zimbabwe has recorded a total of 5,367 Covid deaths within a population of almost 17 million. That calculates as 16 deaths per 100,000 per year. There was never a “Covid pandemic” in Zimbabwe. However, the response to it – lockdowns and restrictions – have devastated the population, particularly the poorest.
