Hafed Al-Ghwell talks about the impact COVID-19 has had on charitable giving in the Muslim world
For more on charitable giving during the COVID-19 pandemic and what has changed, especially in the Muslim world, CGTN's Rachelle Akuffo spoke with Hafed Al-Ghwell, senior fellow at SAIS - Foreign Policy Institute at John Hopkins University.
Deaths from COVID-19 have now surpassed 130,000 in the U.S. as the total cases reach 2.9 million. Aired on 7/6/2020. COVID-19 has had some very stark and very obvious consequences.
The United States has less than five percent of the world's population, but almost a quarter of its deaths with coronavirus.
But there is also a hidden horror unfolding here and it may soon get even worse.
People with mental health and addiction issues, already vulnerable, have found themselves even more exposed.
Some have simply been unable to cope. The anti-viral drug is the first to be recommended for authorisation in the EU. The summit in Brussels heads into a second day after talks broke off on Friday with positions still far apart on financing the coronavirus economic recovery.
