COVID-19-related measures are likely to continue to affect households through the prohibition of movements – as 65% of the respondents reported these restrictions as challenging. The continued increase in food prices is likely to increase the levels of vulnerability among households in the Metro, especially among the 49% of the households that reported lack of money to purchase food and non-food items. Over-reliance on purchased foods with rising food prices is likely to diminish household purchasing power.
