The Kenyan Ministry of Health announced that the Dadaab refugee complex recorded cases of the deadly coronavirus.
Due to overpopulation, the nature of congestion and poor hygiene standards in refugee camps, the announcement will raise fears of a possible rapid spread of the virus if the situation is not well handled quickly.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the Dadaab refugee complex has a population of 217,511 registered refugees and asylum seekers as at the end of March 2020.
Late last month, the Kenyan government ordered the cessation of movement into and out of both Dadaab and Kakuma Refugee camps as part of preemptive measures to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
