covid-19 crisis

The global COVID-19 crisis hit the occupied Palestinian territory in early March 2020, when the first cases of people having the virus were confirmed. This triggered the declaration of a state of emergency by the Palestinian Prime Minister and the imposition of restrictions to contain the spread. The humanitarian community is supporting the authorities in managing the crisis.
