Our reports on Covid-19:

  • In the West Bank, despite the coronavirus outbreak, people are starting to go back to work in a bid to limit the economic crisis. Majid Said reports from Ramallah.

     

  • In Cameroon, the near-collapse of international money transfers means many people are already struggling to pay the bills. Indira Ayuk and her team report.

     

  • In Venezuela, life in Caracas has become even more difficult during the pandemic due to a fuel shortage. This despite the fact that the country has the world's largest oil reserves. Herminia Fernandez reports.

     

  • And in Canada, essential workers are often asylum seekers or other immigrants who don't have proper paperwork. The government is now under pressure to regularise their status, as Laura McQuillan and her team report.
