COVID-19 intensifies persecution against Christians
Michael is joined by Jocelyn Goto, Open Doors Australia & New Zealand Chief Of Staff, regarding a new report that finds the COVID-19 pandemic has intensified the persecution and discrimination of at least 340 million Christians around the world.

The report, which studies the most dangerous countries to be a Christian across the globe, once again found North Korea to be the most dangerous country for Christians for the 20th year in a row.
However, for the first time ever, all countries in the top 50 score levels of at least “very high” persecution.
