What COVID-19 Looks Like in the Occupied Palestinian Territories

For Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem, COVID-19 is threatening an already strained health care system.

In those areas, Palestinian officials have reported nearly 500 cases, and just two deaths. So far, pre-existing security restrictions have played a role in preventing a more rapid spread of the virus in Palestinian communities. But officials have warned that if the number of cases rises, hospitals that serve these communities would be ill-prepared.

To learn more about health care conditions in the occupied Palestinian territories, The Takeaway spoke with Dr. Mutaz Siyam, a doctor based in East Jerusalem, and Amjad Iraqi, an editor at 972 Magazine and policy analyst for Al-Shabaka, a non-partisan think tank focused on Palestinian human rights.
