Where the malnutrition crisis is worse than COVID-19 crisis

Published

on

Tens of millions of people are currently going hungry in both Latin America and the Caribbean, spurred on by the continuing Covid-19 pandemic

The malnutrition crisis in the area is reaching its worst levels in decades, with the number of people living without food increasing by 30 percent in just a year, to 13.8 million.

Whilst the Covid pandemic has its own health threat, the associated economic fallout is leading to more and more homes having empty cupboards.

The United Nations found that women are going hungrier than men, with food insecurity also affecting the most vulnerable people in society.

In 2020, 42 percent of women in the region experienced moderate or severe food insecurity, compared with around 32 percent of men.

The regional representative for the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation has labeled the situation as “critical” with the pandemic mostly to blame.

Microsoft has announced a postponement in the release of its new Recall AI feature, citing significant security concerns raised during internal testing.

Pope Francis took charge of discussions on the implications of artificial intelligence for global ethics and governance, Reuters reports.

The pope said AI represented an “epochal transformation” for mankind, but stressed the need for close oversight of the ever-developing technology to preserve human life and dignity.

“No machine should ever choose to take the life of a human being,” he said, adding that people should not let superpowerful algorithms decide their destiny.
“We would condemn humanity to a future without hope if we took away people’s ability to make decisions about themselves and their lives, by dooming them to depend on the choices of machines,” he warned.
