Sizing Up the Threat of COVID-19 in East Africa

This week on The Horn, Alan is joined by Kenyan diplomat Ambassador Mahboub Maalim to discuss the implications of COVID-19 on vulnerable populations, the threat to multilateral institutions and the limits of virtual diplomacy.

COVID-19 poses an enormous threat in the Horn of Africa. Beyond deadly risks to public health and hospitals, democratic systems are already affected and critical diplomatic efforts disrupted. Outbreaks in camps housing refugees and other populations displaced by conflict could be catastrophic.

Kenyan diplomat Ambassador Mahboub Maalim joins Alan for this second special COVID-19 episode. They discuss the implications of the disease on vulnerable populations, the threat to multilateral institutions and the limits of virtual diplomacy.
