Developing countries are expected to lose $ 2200 million in revenue

The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) says developing countries are expected to lose more than $ 220 million in revenue in the wake of the growing crisis of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The UN Development Program press release said that the crisis affected the developing countries not only in the short term but also as disproportionately affected by the catastrophic social and economic crisis in the coming months and years.

It is estimated that 55% of the global population does not have access to social security; this loss will affect education, human rights in the re-spreading societies and in the most serious situation the problem of basic food security and nutrients will also be encountered. 

The UN's development program said it was likely to overpower hospitals with poor facilities and poor health systems. Cases may also increase in this regard as at least 75% of people in developed countries lack soap and water facilities.

Additional social conditions such as urban planning and overpopulation in some cities, poor waste disposal services and even access to health care facilities can all lead to increased cases, including traffic congestion.

Achim Steiner, a UN recruitment program manager, said the epidemic is a health crisis but not just a health crisis. The epidemic will leave deep scars in vast areas of the world.

"Without the support of the global community, we are risking massive benefits over the past two decades and if not in life, at least the entire generation is lost in terms of rights, opportunities and dignity," he said.

The United Nations Development Program, working with the World Health Organization, is helping various countries prepare for, cope with and cure the Corona virus, and focuses on the most vulnerable and affected countries.
