Least Protected, Most Affected: Migrants and refugees facing extraordinary risks during the COVID-19 pandemic was officially launched for an external audience in Geneva today (10 September) by IFRC President, Francesco Rocca.

Speaking to journalists in Geneva, President Rocca, said: “COVID-19 has been cruel for all of us. It has been catastrophic for migrants. They face even more restrictions in terms of accessing basic services in ways that contribute nothing to public health. They are disproportionately impacted by border closures. They face heightened risk of detention and deportation. They are increasingly scapegoated for the pandemic.”
