Covid-19, flooding and locusts, a triple whammy for East Africa

East Africa is imperiled by ’triple threat’ from coinciding calamities as the coronavirus, locusts and flooding displace communities across the region. The Red Cross said that flooding has led to the displacement of more than 500,000 and killed nearly 300 people while increasing the potential spread of Covid-19 and hampering operations against a locust infestation that has hit the region.

The UN did warn that "There will be famines of Biblical Proportions." Maybe they should have specified that flooding and locust were on the way.
