Global impact of COVID-19 pandemic

Over 70 million cases of COVID-19 had been confirmed worldwide by mid-December 2020,
and the disease had claimed more than 1.6 million lives. According to a joint statement
issued on 13 October 2020 by ILO, FAO, IFAD and WHO “the COVID-19 pandemic has led to
a dramatic loss of human life worldwide and presents an unprecedented challenge to public
health, food systems and the world of work. The economic and social disruption caused by
the pandemic is devastating: tens of millions of people are at risk of falling into extreme
poverty, while the number of undernourished people, currently estimated at nearly 690
million, could increase to over 800 million by the end the year”. 1  In addition, the wide socio-
economic impact of this pandemic has threatened the sustainability of all sectors of society
all over the globe, impacting mental health, the food supply, medical services, education,
and energy, among many other aspects. 2
This statement highlights the important, but often overlooked, fact that healthy nutrition
supplying a full spectrum of micronutrients is the foundation of our immune system function
and provides effective protection against infections, including COVID-19.
