HOW ARE REFUGEES AFFECTED BY COVID-19?

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads around the globe, human rights organizations are warning of the disproportionate impact the coronavirus will have on the world's most vulnerable populations—including refugees.

Paul Spiegel is the director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Humanitarian Health and former deputy director for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. His research focuses on preventing and responding to complex humanitarian emergencies. He joined Johns Hopkins MPH/MBA candidate Samuel Volkin for a discussion on how refugee populations may be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This conversation has been edited for length and clarity.
