Refugee population at (extreme) risk.

As Corona Virus spreads around the globe, little attention has been paid the to unique risk that refugees face from the virus. The virus spreads quickly in close quarters, and since there is currently no cure, the only measures that can be taken are preventative ones. In Lesvos, aid workers have long been warning of the serious risk of pandemic at the Moria camp, due to the terrible hygiene conditions, the lack of potable water, no clean toilets, raw sewage, living in tents in the rain and cold, and poor health care available.  This makes preventative measures such as regular hand washing, almost impossible.
The perfect preconditions are here for the virus to cause maximum damage, in a place that is already at a breaking point.
