CAIRO – 3 June 2020: A recent study by the Egyptian Center for Thought and Strategic Studies warned of an acute food crisis in the African continent due to the coronavirus.

The study, which was published on the center's website, confirmed that the potential global food crisis will have dangerous effects on the countries of the African continent.

The study added that these countries will suffer from the deterioration of economic capabilities and the failure to implement development projects in the areas of food security, as well as the difficulty of delivering humanitarian aid to those who deserve it.

The head of the International Monetary Fund said that Africa still needs $44 billion to combat the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis, according to the study.

He stressed the need to implement a strategy to stop the fighting in some countries adopted by the African Union within the vision of Africa 2063, in order for the countries of the continent to face the challenges after coronavirus.

He also emphasized that priority should be given to achieving health security and implementing food security initiatives as pillars in support of African national security.
