Starvation Poses Threat During Pandemics, But Occurrence Difficult To Predict, Study Says

New York Times: Starvation Timetable in a Pandemic
“Starvation is a real threat during an extended pandemic, but it is very hard to predict when and where it will start, researchers report in an unusual new study. … Researchers at EcoHealth Alliance, a New York research group, used mathematical models to gauge the effects [of pandemics on starvation] under various scenarios. Their study was published this month in the Journal of Environmental Studies and Sciences…” (McNeil, 6/19).
