Gaza’s chronic sufferers see no light at end of tunnel

The Gaza Strip is slowly and gingerly emerging from another full pandemic lockdown.

But the pain is far from over, especially for those suffering chronic illnesses in an area in which the health sector has been systematically undermined over 13 years of Israeli blockade and is now staggering under the weight of the coronavirus pandemic.

But this has deprived chronically ill patients from accessing regular checkups and treatment.
