In December 2019, the first alarming messages about the appearance of large quantities of locusts began to come from the coast of the Red Sea. The situation there, with the exception of the countries of East Africa, was tolerable, however, forecasts for the development of the situation were frightening.
And now the forecasts have come true – the locusts invaded Yemen, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia:

The bulk of insects came to the Arabian Peninsula from India and then to China, where there are news that 100,000 geese were released to help the situation there:

In fact, geese are dying from bird flu by entire farms. Some farmers slaughter them, others simply release them into the wild, which implies much less labor:
“And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth,
and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth.
They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them…”
Apocalypse, ch. 9, Art. 3-5.
