The impact of COVID-19 on aid for Syrian refugees
A center in Turkey near the border with Syria, which helped Syrian child laborers get therapy and education, has been shut down because of the pandemic. Now there are concerns about the fate of the children who benefited from it. And, Brazil's congress is starting an inquiry into President Jair Bolsonaro's handling of the pandemic, while the number of COVID-19 deaths in the country continues to set records. Also, beavers reminded Canadians of their national animal status last weekend when they gnawed through some fiber cables and shut down internet service in Tumbler Ridge, British Columbia.
