Virus outbreak could spin 'out of control' in South Sudan

Published Mon Jun 22 2020 07:03:12 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
South Sudan was never going to be ready for COVID-19. Five years of civil war and corruption stripped away much of its health system. Nearly half of the population was hungry before the pandemic. Deadly insecurity continues. Now three workers at the country's only lab testing for the virus have been infected, along with more than 50 health workers. Some people have died waiting for rapid-response teams to arrive. And the WHO is investigating respiratory-related deaths at a camp for displaced people. One doctor says the situation could spin "out of control at any time.”
