In Somalia, the U.S. military has carried out more airstrikes so far this year than it did during all eight years of Barack Obama’s presidency. U.S. Africa Command says it carried out 39 attacks in Somalia since January 1, even as the coronavirus continued to spread. Somalia has confirmed 286 cases of coronavirus, but testing remains extremely limited. Somalia’s healthcare system is one of the poorest in the world, with just one doctor for every 100,000 people.
