Covid: Gaza health system ‘days from being overwhelmed’ (BBC)

BBC: Covid: Gaza health system ‘days from being overwhelmed’. “Rising numbers of coronavirus cases in the Gaza Strip threaten to overwhelm the Palestinian territory’s healthcare system within days, experts warn. Of Gaza’s 100 ventilators, 79 are already taken up by Covid-19 patients, said Abdelraouf Elmanama, of the enclave’s pandemic task force. Densely populated Gaza, with two million residents and high levels of poverty, is vulnerable to contagion.”
