World Bank: 21 Million to be free from Covid-induced poverty

World Bank, COVID-19:– The World Bank reduced the Covid-induced poverty estimates to 21 million by September 15, 2021.

Highlights

  • The World Bank also stated that the world may be turning the corner in terms of pandemics in 2021.
  • It warned that Covid’s background of poverty was still unheard of.
  • This estimate has the following implications: global poverty is expected to fall. The pace of reduction is also returning to pre-pandemic levels.
  • According to the World Bank in 2020, the covid-19 epidemic led to 97 million more people falling into poverty. This number was 21 million lower than the previous estimate.
  • The rate of decline is comparable to the pace expected before the pandemic. The recovery that is taking place in 2020 will not be enough to close the gap caused by the pandemic.
