Sanctions during COVID-19

With the Covid-19 pandemic affecting almost all countries around the world, there are some that are finding navigating through the pandemic even more difficult because of sanctions that have been imposed on them by powerhouses like United States. The UN has asked that sanctions be loosened during this crisis but the US has done the opposite. Many US allies have broken with them and sent medical aid to some of these countries. African countries like Sudan, Zimbabwe also face the dilemma
