The United Nations said on Friday that the number of people displaced by wars and crises in the world has doubled in the past ten years, reaching 82.4 million, a record number despite the Corona virus pandemic.

“82.4 million… a ninth year of continuous rise,” Filippo Grandi, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, explained during a presentation of annual trends. This is exactly double the number recorded ten years ago.”
