BACKGROUND
The COVID-19 public health emergency was declared a global pandemic on March 11, 2020. After recording its first confirmed case on February 27, Nigeria has reported 44,129 confirmed cases across 35 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) (August 5, 2020)[1]. On April 22, the first confirmed COVID-19 case was recorded in Nigeria’s north-eastern Borno State, and to date, has reported 613 confirmed cases, presenting serious concerns for the spread of the virus in congested internally displaced person (IDP) camps and host communities. Borno State remains the epicenter of an 11-year crisis in Nigeria and home to over 1.5 million IDPs due to the humanitarian crisis caused by insurgents (i.e., Boko Haram, ISWAP, the Caliphate) and other non-state actors. In addition to prolonged armed violence, communities in the state experienced outbreaks of measles, malaria, and cholera seasonally and throughout the year. Children suffer from severe malnutrition due to poorly staffed, non-functional, and physically damaged health and water/hygiene infrastructure, and limited access to isolated communities due to insecurity and poor road networks.
