PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES/2020/Covid-19 threat hampers care for gunshot wounded in Gaza


Between March 2018 and December 2019, 8,800 people were injured with live ammunitions by the Israeli army while attending the “Great March of Return”, along the fence separating Gaza from Israel. After more than two years since the beginning of the protests, most of those people still need follow-up surgeries, prolonged treatment for infected wounds and require long courses of rehabilitation and specific care. The threat of COVID-19 is making their excruciating recovery process even harder and longer, since many medical services and activities had to be reduced or temporarily suspended. Indeed, since March 2020, MSF has had to adapt its medical activities in Gaza to be compliant with all the measures recommended by the Ministry of Health to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. But the organization is still doing its utmost to ensure the follow-up of the patients, even in these exceptional circumstances.
