The Coronavirus is having an impact on absolutely every element of our lives. For people living in war-zones, the virus is just one more threat when you’re already dealing with so much suffering. Faced with immediate threats to life, such as gunfire, shelling and bombings, and lack of life-saving health care, it’s a real challenge to prioritize how you’re going to deal with it all.
So with this episode, we are starting a new series of shorts that hear from different ICRC delegations and focus on how a global pandemic affects some of the world’s most vulnerable populations. We’ll begin with a look at the threat of a new pandemic entering detention centers, where once inside, it is very difficult to contain. Hosted by Niki Clark.
