Another Palestinian refugee has died of the novel coronavirus in Lebanon, aggravating the state of panic overwhelming the cash-stripped Palestinian refugee community as a result of the unabated virus outbreak.
Palestinian refugee Emad Kaadan Abu Issa, who had been sheltered in AlJalil camp in Baalbek, after he fled Yarmouk Camp in Damascus, is another victim of the deadly virus among the Palestinian refugee community in Lebanon.
According to data by the Palestinian Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Ministry, COVID-19 has claimed the lives of nearly 400 Palestinian refugees in the diaspora since the pandemic outbreak.
