A Palestinian bride and groom wearing masks as a preventive measure against the coronavirus disease leave a hairdressing salon, on their wedding day in Khan Younis in the southern of Gaza strip, on March 22, 2020. Authorities in Gaza confirmed the first two cases of novel coronavirus, identifying them as Palestinians who had travelled to Pakistan and were being held in quarantine since their return. The United Nations has warned that a COVID-19 outbreak in Gaza could be disastrous, given the high poverty rates and weak health system in the coastal strip under Israeli blockade since 2007.
