The Coronavirus, or COVID-19, is spreading rapidly across international borders. It has now reached countries with weak health systems which are less prepared to combat the disease. Vulnerable populations and those living in crisis will be hit the hardest by this outbreak.
The International Rescue Committee is responding around the world in countries impacted by Coronavirus, including Syria and Yemen, where conflict has devastated healthcare systems. Our health teams are working around the clock to rapidly detect, respond and prevent further spread of the disease.
The COVID-19 pandemic is a powerful reminder of the world’s inequalities, and how we are only as strong as our weakest health system. We can fight this virus, but we need to do it together.
