Poor countries are ‘on a ledge with no safety net’, according to David Milliband, who is in conversation with Lyse Doucet and UN Relief Chief Mark Lowcock in this free live online event.
In rich countries, the implications of the coronavirus outbreak seem to be always in people’s lives: poor health, the loss of freedom, and economic reverberations. It’s easy to forget that the most devastating effects will be most acute in countries already suffering from conflict, poverty, and famine.
Those who register for this 60 minute event will be able to submit questions, the best of which will be asked by Lyse Doucet to David Milliband and Sir Mark Lowcock.
