At least 23 people, including 13 disabled children, were infected with the coronavirus in the orphanage of the Belarusian city of Glusk. BBC reports with reference to the Irish charity that helps the orphanage.
They said that some of the children are already ‘very sick.’
More than 170 children and young people, many with serious disorders and a weakened immune system are in the orphanage.
Adi Rocher, the founder of the Chornobyl Children's Charity, says the orphanage lacks medication for treatment. The orphanage asked the government to transport the children.
Belarus authorities confirmed the outbreak in the orphanage but did not disclose the exact number of cases.
According to the Johns Hopkins University, 8,773 coronavirus infections and 67 deaths were confirmed in Belarus.
