Covid-19: Red Cross chief laments inability to hug

Mar 27, 2020 20:17 IST

The President of the International Federation of the Red Cross has lamented the lack of human contact that the Covid-19 virus is enforcing on him and his workers. In an emotional video call from Milan on Friday during a UN briefing, Francesco Rocca said that the inability to hug each other and provide physical comfort during this time of social distancing was proving particularly tough. On Thursday, The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement appealed for 850 million US dollars to assist the world's most vulnerable people in fight against Covid-19. (SOT)
