Chart of the Day: Global Food Prices Are Soaring

China vowed to ensure continuous food supply at stable prices after an outcry over shortages of produce in the coronavirus hotspot of Xi’an city in Shaanxi province, officials said at the State Council’s press conference on Saturday, while reiterating the government’s zero covid policy.   

The northwest epidemic center of Xi’an, which has been in lockdown for two weeks, has struggled to deliver daily necessities to its 13 million residents. Officials on Saturday expressed confidence that they would provide adequate supplies and would solve delivery problems after several shopping apps stopped functioning because of pandemic controls.
