Crime drops across the world as COVID-19 keeps people inside

As the COVID-19 pandemic forces people across the world to stay indoors, crime rates globally have dipped. In Chicago, one of America’s most violent cities, crime declined 10% after the crisis struck. Across Latin America, crime is down to levels unseen in decades. El Salvador reported an average of two killings a day in Mar. In South Africa, reported rapes have been down 85% year on year.
