COVID-19 IS CHANGING THE ROUTE OF ILLICIT DRUG FLOWS, SAYS UN REPORT

A news release from the UN Office on Drugs and Crime on 7 May says that measures implemented by governments to curb the COVID-19 pandemic have led to drug trafficking routes by air being disrupted, along with drastic reduction or increased interdiction in trafficking routes over land. Some drug supply chains have been interrupted and traffickers are looking for alternative routes, including maritime routes, depending on the types of drugs smuggled.
