WASHINGTON DC - The second wave of the coronavirus pandemic has hit the “poorest and most vulnerable” hardest in Myanmar, according to a new report from the World Bank.

In the latest issue of its twice yearly Myanmar Economic Monitor (MEM), the World Bank says the country's most vulnerable people had been forced into 'negative coping strategies', including cutting back on essentials and going into more debt, to make ends meet.

The report reveals that the proportion of households experiencing moderate to severe food insecurity more than doubled, from 12 to 25 per cent, between the months of August and October.
