Coronavirus: Half a billion people could be pushed into poverty, says UN study

Half a billion more people worldwide could be pushed into poverty amid the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic unless developing countries receive urgent help, according to a United Nations study and Oxfam International.

The figure represents eight percent of the world's population, the report says, adding that a setback on this scale would be the first time that global poverty had increased in 30 years.
