The coronavirus pandemic has created a crisis of monumental proportions. While it has cost thousands of loss of human lives, the effects on the global economy and the sustainable development prospects might be worse. It is said that the economic impact of this pandemic could increase the global poverty and pushing half a billion people into poverty based on one research by the United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER). The fundamental weakness in our global system has been left exposed by this pandemic. The prevalence of poverty, weak health systems, lack of education, and a lack of global cooperation have all exacerbated this crisis.
