IRC warns up to 1 BILLION people could be infected with Covid-19

A prominent charity organization has warned that up to ONE BILLION people across the world could be infected with the new coronavirus if immediate action is not taken.
The International Rescue Committee said crowded refugee camps in Syria, Greece and Bangladesh were among the most threatened places. The US-based charity singled out Yemen, Jordan and Iraq as other countries most at risk. It said these countries lack the financial resources to fund stay-at-home campaigns and the infrastructure and jobs that would allow people to work in isolation from home. The I-R-C noted that trading barriers has slowed the delivery for protective equipment, halted vaccination and disrupted supplies for malnourished children.
