The non-COVID-19 disasters in the year 2020

2020: The Non-COVID disasters

Undoubtedly, the year 2020 will be remembered as the year when COVID-19 began to impact societies worldwide as a truly trans-boundary health hazard, manifesting the vulnerability of people in developed and in developing countries alike.  The news about the COVID-19 pandemic blurred news related to other disasters triggered by natural, technological and biological hazards.  One of those was the very large locust outbreak that began in the Horn of Africa late in 2019, and later migrated through the Middle East to Southern Asia.
