Covid-19

In Madagascar, the pandemic is deepening food insecurity

In Madagascar, the pandemic is exacerbating an already precarious situation. As of July 31st, over 10,000 COVID-19 cases were recorded in the country. This is a worrisome progression in a country where sanitation facilities are lacking and the testing capacity is limited. As early as March, many began to flee the capital city of Anatanarivo for their villages or agricultural areas due to fears related to the virus and a steep rise in the cost of food.
