The United Nations warned, on Wednesday, that Libya is extremely vulnerable to the spread of the coronavirus epidemic, given the levels of insecurity, poor health system, and the high numbers of migrants and IDPs.

Spokesman for the Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric announced at a press conference the suspension of humanitarian operations in Libya, due to the continued military attacks in Tripoli.

The UN official pointed out that the ongoing clashes and restrictive Covid-19 measures in Libya hinder the delivery of aid to humanitarian organizations.
