More on the second wave
According to reports, the second wave has begun swarming Africa. And it could threaten the food supply. But, according to the The New Humanitarian, the coronavirus pandemic could impact relief efforts.
The New Humanitarian said: “While farmers had already harvested most of their crops by the time the first generation emerged, the latest swarms are coming at the start of the planting cycle, and as new seedlings — which locusts prefer over mature crops — begin to sprout.”
