October 17 is the international day for the eradication of poverty. /CFP
Since the start of the pandemic, millions of people around the world have been pushed into poverty.
This year, between 143 and 163 million people – mostly in South Asian and Sub-Saharan countries - are expected to join the 1.3 billion people already living in poverty before the crisis began.
And they are not alone. In 2020, between 88 and 115 million people were in the same position. Many of them were negatively impacted by the necessary restrictions put in place to combat the virus.
To mark this year's international day for the eradication of poverty, CGTN Europe has created a quiz about poverty around the world and the organizations combating it.
This quiz is part of our series on alleviating poverty. You can find more here Innovation, action, change
