A new report from the United Nations says there was a dramatic worsening of world hunger in 2020, much of it likely related to the fallout of COVID-19. Global hunger shot up by an estimated 118 million people worldwide in 2020, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, jumping to 768 million people - the most going at least as far back as 2006. The report highlights that Asia and Africa are home to the majority of people in the world who are food insecure. NDTV's Parmeshwar Bawa breaks down the details.
