Abstract

Major global outbreaks, including Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), had a heavy impact on food and nutrition security in the affected countries. While the long-term effects on countries' food systems will depend largely on the unique course of COVID-19, this pandemic will be no exception.
