Not to make light of the corona virus pandemic, as any loss of life prematurely is a tradgedy,but according to the F.A.O.25,000 people will lose their lives today because of starvation and malnutrition..that is over 9,1 million people a year,,,many of them children below the age of five. Where is the media maelstrom and world wide outrage on this issue!chirp...chirp...chirp from hollowwood,,I mean hollywood

Anthony, I know what you mean, what has become of all the other news, probably important news to know, and not saying news about Covid 19 is not important news but there are other things happening, like climate change, wars, and starvation etc etc

Well, to answer your question, I'm guessing because the vast majority of those deaths are in Africa, Asia and Middle East. We wouldn't tolerate that scale of human suffering in the west but we look the other way in the third world. We're all too self-absorbed and busy on our iPhones.
