This report assesses the knowledge and practices related to COVID-19 amongst in-camp refugees and the impact of COVID-19 on refugee livelihoods. It also evaluates WFP’s intervention in response to the pandemic.

This report, published in August 2020, has shown that almost all 99 per cent of those who took part in the survey conducted in two rounds (the first round took place between 25 - 29 April 2020 and the second round between 12 May - 10 June 2020) stated that they have heard of COVID-19 and its spread around the world mainly through television (62 per cent) and social media (29 per cent). About half (49 per cent) of the respondents reported feeling fear, anxiety or stress in the first round of the survey. However, this proportion dropped to 30 percent in the second survey.
