Up to 150M could join extreme poor, World Bank says

The World Bank has said that up to 150M people could slip into extreme poverty, living on less than $1.90 a day, by late 2021 depending on how badly economies shrink during the COVID-19 pandemic. Middle income-countries, including India, Nigeria and Indonesia, are expected to have 82% of the new extreme poor. Global economic growth is expected to fall the fastest in the past eight decades.

You mean the government restrictions will force those people into poverty. The virus didn't do that!

Don't blame the Rona... It's the worldwide BS response to it and ongoing lunacy that is causing poverty.
