Development Minister - More people die from the consequences of lockdown than from the virus
By Reuters Staff
Berlin (Reuters) - Federal Development Minister Gerd Müller (CSU) warns of the collateral damage in the fight against Corona.
“Far more people will die from the consequences of the lockdown than from the virus,” said Müller in an interview with the “Handelsblatt”. "On the African continent alone, we expect an additional 400,000 deaths from malaria and HIV this year, as well as half a million more who will die of tuberculosis." The pandemic has also "triggered one of the greatest poverty and hunger crises".
The reasons he cited were the lack of food and medicine and insufficient aid from the West. The industrialized countries were so focused on fighting corona at home that they lost sight of other problems. "Europe has decided to support its own economy programs worth around two trillion euros," said Müller, according to the preliminary report. “No additional support is planned for Africa. That will catch up with us. "
As a countermeasure, Müller advocated a stabilization program of over 50 billion euros from European loans and emergency aid. In addition, work is being done on a new EU-Africa agreement focusing on migration, climate, energy, security and economic cooperation. “25 African countries alone are facing national bankruptcy. Investors have withdrawn 100 billion in capital, currencies and raw material revenues have collapsed, ”said the CSU politician.
