Moreover, Russian Navy’s cutting off grain movements to and from Ukrainian ports could cause food shortage in low-income countries.

The AFP report, citing Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria Executive Director Peter Sands said that the weakened immune system to fight disease could play a role in deaths due to diseases and not by starvation.

Peter further said that governments should focus to minimize the effects caused by food crisis. He added that 1.5 million people could not receive or received less treatment for TB during COVID-19 causing their deaths.

Sands added that looking at the pattern of 1.5 million deaths by TB in 2020, thousands of people could die due to infectious diseases.

On the other hand, the Russian Government has said that supplies were being hampered due to western sanctions.
