Norway pleads for more aid to help Palestinians tackle coronavirus

 Russia to limit flights to and from EU, Switzerland and Norway ...
Norway called on Friday for more money to help the Palestinian Territories get through the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Although there has only been one death and 161 reported cases of the coronavirus in the Palestinian Territories, the outbreak is expected to worsen there.
 
Globally, cases have now passed 1 million, with more than 53,000 fatalities, with most in the United States, Italy and Spain after the initial outbreak in Asia.

"We need to work together to prevent this from being a bigger humanitarian and health disaster than we think it can be, especially in Gaza, but also in the West Bank," Norway's Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Soereide told Reuters.
 
"We are urging donors to step up their efforts both through the World Bank and also directly to the Palestinians," she said.
 
Norway chairs the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee (AHLC), which is the donor group to the Palestinians.
The Palestinian Authority estimates it needs $120 million to respond to the coronavirus outbreak, but Soereide expects the needs to grow and the measures already taken to limit the spread to hit the Palestinian economy and budget.
