Coronavirus: Half World's Workers May See Livelihood Destroyed
The International Labour Organisation's updated analysis emphasises its severe impact on people in informal work.
It says many have already suffered massive damage to their capacity to earn a living.
Without alternative income, these workers and their families would have no means to survive, it says.
The new analysis says 1.6 billion people's livelihoods are threatened by the virus, equivalent to almost half the global workforce.
